Sharif Dares Pakistan Army Over Mumbai Terror Attacks

Former Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

The NSC meeting also unanimously "rejected the allegations and condemned the fallacious assertions". And the person who is asking this question has been labelled a traitor.

"PPP rejects Nawaz Sharif's statement and stance on the Mumbai attacks", she said, adding that questions were being raised all around the world following Sharif 's remarks.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Spokesman Fawad Chaudhry on Tuesday took a jibe at Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi for being a "Nawaz loyalist" at the expense of the state and demanded another National Security Council (NSC) meeting. He insisted that there is a need to form a national commission to carry out a probe to ascertain the facts.

Former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, on Saturday, ruffled more than a few feathers when he openly acknowledged that militant organisations operative in Pakistan, crossed the border to "kill" people in Mumbai, in an apparent reference to the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai. Through their counsel, the petitioners contend that the "irresponsible" statement by Mr Sharif has tarnished the image of the country and India is crying for seeking sanctions against Pakistan. He said no one had the authority to issue the certificate of traitor or patriotism to anyone.

India said the gunmen were Pakistani and had arrived on the Mumbai waterfront by rubber boat after crossing the Arabian sea from the Pakistani city of Karachi in a trawler.

"Even at that time, the same things, getting our house in order, were being discussed in an NSC meeting", he said, referring to a meeting of the body in 2016. Call them non-state actors, should we allow them to cross the border and kill 150 people in Mumbai?

Although Nawaz has stuck to his guns, asking: "What did I say that was wrong in the interview?", his younger brother Shahbaz, who is also the chief minister of Punjab, issued a statement on Sunday, saying that the news report had "incorrectly attributed certain remarks to PML-N Quaid Nawaz Sharif, which do not represent PML-N's party policy".

Meanwhile, a petition was filed with the Lahore High Court (LHC) seeking action against Nawaz for his recent controversial statement regarding 2008 Mumbai attacks.
