Meesha Shafi’s tweet, however, got a lot of people emotional.
In the tweet, she revealed how she couldn’t make it in time for her father’s burial while giving Maryam hosla to pass by this difficult time.
Today is my father’s (Syed Parvez Shafi) first barsi, I could not make it to NY in time to bury him. And I don’t know if I will ever be able to bury that regret. I feel your pain @MaryamNSharif
Stay strong & have faith in this time of loss and grief ❤️#RIPBegumKulsoomNawaz

In the end, no matter where your loved ones are, they just want you to be happy.
We will have to bury all that we hold close and dear. Bury your regret because our loved ones only want joy and happiness for us.

Many people did not know that Meesha Shafi had lost her father, who was an actor himself.
I didn’t know your father passed away. Sorry to heard that. I remember when he used to act on tv. Recently I was wondering about him. You got his looks. Share his latest pic if you have one.

Grief is beyond politics, as is family and suffering
I’m so glad you did not politicize your tweet.

No matter how you feel about the Sharifs, this is a time to forget politics. Death is such a tragic thing to go through. We pray for the Sharif family in this difficult time of theirs.
Rest in Peace Kulsoom Nawaz.
