Nawaz Sharif 'Speaking Modi's Words' On Mumbai Attacks: Top 10 Developments

  • Sharif’s disclosure vindicates India’s stand Sitharaman

The hard reality is that while he was aware of the conspiracy behind the attacks, he made no efforts for completion of 26/11-related cases in Pakistan during his tenure later as Prime Minister.

The Mumbai terror attacks case is being tried in an anti-terrorism court in Pakistan since 2009, but the case isn't going anywhere.

Without naming Nawaz Sharif, the official spokesperson said that the meeting was suggested "to discuss recent misleading media statement regarding Bombay incident".

"You can't run a country if you have two or three parallel governments".

The former prime minister wondered why there was no accountability of generals who overthrew democratically-elected governments and undermined the constitution of the country while politicians who worked for Pakistan and its people were labelled as traitors.

Sharif, asked about his ouster, brought up issues of security and foreign policy - which the military controls. Despite giving sacrifices, our narrative is not being accepted. It is at this stage in the interview that he referred to India.

The petition was filed in the Lahore High Court by advocate Aftab Virk on behalf of Pakistan Awaami Tehreek's Khurram Nawaz Gandapur, alleging that Sharif's statement is against national security and state institutions. "Explain it to me", he had said, in a clear reference to the Mumbai killings blamed on 10 Pakistani terrorists. "Why can't we complete the trial". It is absolutely unacceptable.




He expressed full support for Mr Sharif and said the entire party, including party president Shehbaz Sharif, stands with him. "[Chinese] President Xi has said it".

He added that Sharif's candid admission about the presence of "non-state actors" on Pakistani soil and their involvement in cross-border terrorism is nothing new, as he has merely repeated what the rest of the world has been saying for a long time.

The PTI chairman went on to say that whole Indian campaign was against Pakistan Army but entire nation is standing along with the country's armed forces.

She also claimed that her father took all the blame for the 1999 Kargil war for her country's valiant soldiers despite the fact that then army chief General (retd) Pervez Musharraf had initiated the war without his knowledge but is still being called a traitor.

"The participants unanimously rejected the allegations and condemned the fallacious assertions", it said. This has become a "core impediment in the finalisation of the trial".

The NSC said that India on a number of occasions refused to extend cooperation. This is in line with his combative mood.

Following the meeting, Abbasi, who replaced Sharif as PM after the latter was disqualified rom holding public office, met the PML-N leader. Sharif was disqualified as the prime minister by Pakistan's judiciary in July previous year on charges of hiding salary he took from his son's company in the UAE.
