ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has expressed his condolences on the sad demise of mother of his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi.

In a tweet uploaded on Friday, Shehbaz Sharif said there was no greater loss than losing one’s mother, offering his condolences to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the passing away of his mother. Earlier, Narendra Modi’s mother Heeraben Modi has died at the age of 99.

“A glorious century rests at the feet of God,” Mr Modi tweeted on Friday morning. He lit his mother’s funeral pyre in Gandhinagar in western Gujarat state – where Heeraben lived – on Friday.

Heeraben had been admitted to hospital on Wednesday after her health deteriorated. The Indian prime minister often visited his mother to seek her blessings on important occasions and festivals. Her life and sacrifices had “shaped” his mind, personality and self-confidence, Mr Modi wrote on 18 June when Heeraben turned 99.

“My mother is as simple as she is extraordinary. Just like all mothers,” he wrote. They were last seen together in public on 4 December when Mr Modi visited her house during the assembly election in Gujarat, his home state.
