Pakistan played a role in 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks: Nawaz Sharif

Lord Nazeer says Nawaz Sharif is trying to undermine Pakistan’s institutions

Defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman also used Sharif's name, though in a different context - to further the attack on the Congress for corruption. He said by blaming Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif has actually presented himself to the enemies as an offer to become an approver against Pakistan to malign country through sheer lies.

Pakistan's longest serving PM, Sharif was disqualified for life from office by the Supreme Court in 2017 for not disclosing the income he received in 2013 from his son's Dubai-based Capital FZE company.

"India used the Mumbai attacks for its own despicable plans", said Nisar, who has swayed away from Nawaz since his ouster a year ago.

A spokesman for Mr Sharif said: "At the outset, statement of Nawaz Sharif has been grossly misinterpreted by the Indian media". He indicated that his country should look into why its narrative that it had been fighting terrorism had not been accepted by the global community "despite sacrifices". Stating that the terrorist organisations were thriving in Pakistan, he held them which he called "non-state actors" responsible for the series of coordinated attacks in Mumbai. "We must look into it". Explain it to me.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf founder and former cricket captain Imran Khan tweeted his condemnation of Sharif's remarks Sunday.




Ch Nisar also blamed India for showing aggression and refusing to cooperate during the investigation into the case. Afghanistan's narrative is being accepted, but ours is not.

What he was referring to is the stalled trial in a Rawalpindi anti-terrorism court. "Why can't we complete the trial?" he said, according to the newspaper.

Meanwhile, Sharif's younger brother Shahbaz Sharif said that media misrepresented views of the former prime minister.

A number of Pakistani witnesses both official and private testified and provided evidence against the seven accused, but the Pakistani authorities have been insisting on sending Indian witnesses for reaching a verdict in the case. There can only be one government: "the constitutional one", Sharif said in the interview.

The Army chief, General Bipin Rawat has already made clear that the army was "ready to suspend" military operations to avoid civilian casualties but has asked, "Who will guarantee that there won't be fire at our men, at our vehicles; who will guarantee that policemen, political workers, our men returning home on leave aren't attacked, aren't killed?" Nine of the attackers were killed by police while lone survivor Ajmal Kasab was caught and hanged after handed down death sentence.
