Ahead of the arrival of Pakistan's former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam in Pakistan on Friday, a picture of the father-daughter duo with ailing Begum Kulsoom at London's Harley Street Clinic has surfaced on social media.
The picture shows Maryam breaking down into tears and Nawaz keeping his hands on Kulsoom's head.
A Pakistan-based journalist tweeted the picture and captioned it, "This picture will haunt many in future. Remember."

While some are seeing it as an emotional picture, some Twitter users said that photo will be marked as the ugliest face of Pakistani Establishment.
"This picture will be marked as the ugliest face of Pakistani Establishment for a hundred years," a user said.

Maryam Nawaz has also retweeted the picture.
Meanwhile, Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz, who are convicted in Avenfield Reference case, will leave from London to return to Pakistan today.
"Maryam and I are coming back to face prison and even if they send me to the gallows, we know that freedom cannot be won without sacrifice. It is not easy to leave my wife on a ventilator in a hospital but I am returning along with my daughter to play our role to rid of this slavery," several media reports quoted, Nawaz, as speaking at a party conference in the ballroom of the Grosvenor House
Hotel in central London's Mayfair district.
On July 6, Nawaz was sentenced to 10 years of imprisonment and a fine of eight million pounds was slapped on him in the Avenfield Reference case, while Maryam was sentenced to seven years of jail and fined two million pounds, by the Accountability Court.
