Nisar lashes out at Nawaz Sharif over Mumbai attack remarks

Backlash over ‘pro-India’ remarks of Nawaz

Former Prime Minister of Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif, reportedly admitted to the country playing a role in the deadly 26/11 attacks in India's financial capital Mumbai.

Khan's statement seems to have come in reference to the interview given by Sharif to Pakistan's news daily Dawn in which he was quoted as saying, "Militant organisations are active. We strongly believe that the handlers of the attack were in Pakistan", Sitharaman said, adding, "It (Sharif's remarks) only proves that India's stand has been right all the way".

Rehman warned that such reckless statements inflict damage on Pakistan's narrative while apprising at the same time that country has tendered unrivalled sacrifices in war on terror.

The trial for the 26/11 attacks are stuck in a court in Rawalpindi since 2009 and have made little progress despite voluminous evidence forwarded by Indian in dossiers to Pakistan including the intercepts between the terror masterminds and the terrorists in Mumbai.

A meeting of the National Security Committee (NSC) has been suggested to Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi to discuss misleading media statement on the Mumbai incident, Director-General of the Inter-Services Public Relations said on Sunday. He claimed that although Pakistan had cooperated with the Indian government for information-sharing regarding every terrorist incident, India had not reciprocated for incidents taking place inside Pakistan, including the arrest of Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav.

Addressing a press conference, she said "Pakistan Peoples Party rejects Nawaz Sharif's statement and stance on Mumbai attacks.PPP wants the Mumbai trials to be taken to their logical conclusion and the perpetrators to be punished. Why can't we complete the trial".

Senator Rehman, who is also the Leader of the Opposition in the Senate, said questions were being raised all around the world following Mr Sharif's remarks.

Some 166 people were killed in the attack carried out by 10 LeT men.

Sharif, 68, was disqualified by the Supreme Court for not being "honest and righteous" as he failed to declare in 2013 a salary he got from the company of his son in the UAE. One of them was caught and hanged.
