Nawaz Sharif agrees to Pakistan's involvement in Mumbai attack

Howard TerryMay 15, 2018

Without naming 26/11 Mumbai attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed and Maulana Masood Azhar's militant organizations-Jamaat-ud-Dawah and Jaish-e-Mohammad-operating in the country with impunity, Sharif said: "Militant organisations are active in Pakistan". "Explain it to me", he asked, in a clear reference to the Mumbai killings blamed on 10 Pakistani terrorists. Nine of the attackers were killed by police while lone survivor Ajmal Kasab was caught and hanged after handed down death sentence.

He has also questioned the trial of stabbing in Pakistan's attack.

To a query on Karnataka exit polls, she said the BJP would form the government in the State.

"The statement of Nawaz Sharif has been grossly misinterpreted by the Indian media", a statement from an unnamed PML-N spokesperson said on Sunday.

Addressing a press conference on Monday, opposition PTI chief Imran Khan demanded that the former prime minister be tried for treason, and that PML-N leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi resign as prime minister. He had questioned why his country had not been able to complete the trial in the case yet. "They believe that announcement by the ISPR chief through social media indicated that the military authorities have chose to seriously take up the issue and that they want Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi's stance over the matter", the daily said. He said that Sharif is talking the language of India.

Expressing fears about the security of Sharif following his interview, Nusrat demanded the worldwide community to exert pressure on authorities in Pakistan to take every possible precautionary measure to ensure the safety of the former Pakistani prime minister.

Pakistan's National Security Committee will meet on Monday to discuss the "recent misleading media statement regarding [the] Bombay incident", said Director General of Inter-Services Public Relations Major General Asif Ghafoor. In the context of the interview it is clear that he was holding the army's interference in governance - and its support of terrorism - responsible for becoming a drag on the country's economy.

The NSC said it was unfortunate and regrettable that concrete evidence and facts were ignored in the statement. They have, like the NSC, kept away from the principal thrust of his argument against the army but focussed on the "traitorous" nature of his remarks on terrorism and India.

Earlier in the day, the NSC termed former premier Nawaz Sharif's comments regarding the 26/11 Mumbai attacks as "incorrect and misleading", said a statement released by the government.

Nawaz, in response, had dispelled the notion that the comments were falsely attributed to him, saying that he would speak the truth come what may.
