Indian media distorted Sharif's 26/11 statement- Pak PM

Howard TerryMay 16, 2018

In an interview last week, Sharif had questioned Pakistan's policy to allow the "non-state actors" to cross the border and "kill" people in Mumbai as he publicly acknowledged that militant groups are active in the country.

Earlier on Monday, it was hurriedly announced by the PM House that Shahid Khaqan Abbasi will hold an important presser after the meeting of National Security Council to explain what was discussed in the high-profile meeting. Speaking to reporters outside the accountability court where he arrived to stand trial on corruption charges, he said: "The statement is unfortunate and painful".

The meeting reviewed the recent statement in the context of Mumbai attacks, as it appeared in the Daily Dawn of 12th May 2018, and unanimously termed this statement as incorrect and misleading. "A decision should be made about who is a patriot and who is a traitor", he added.

The spokesman said the PML-N as the country's premier popular national political party and its supreme leader (Nawaz Sharif) need no certificate from anybody on their commitment and capacity to preserve, protect and promote Pakistan's national security.

The Supreme Court disqualified three-time prime minister Sharif from office in July past year over unreported sources of monthly income of less than US$3,000 (RM11,900) from a United Arab Emirates company, a salary he denied ever receiving. "What have we turned this country into?"

Pakistan's former dictator General Pervez Musharraf has attacked Nawaz Sharif and blamed the ousted prime minister for withdrawing from Kargil in 1999 under pressure from India when the Pakistan Army was in a "dominating position". "Despite giving sacrifices, our narrative is not being accepted", Sharif said.

Sheikh also said that the name of the PML-N supremo should be placed on the Exit Control List, and the interior ministry alerted to file a complain against the former premier. After the publication of Sharif's interview on Saturday, his party issued a clarification, saying that the Indian media had "grossly misinterpreted" his remarks.
