Sharif's 26/11 statement 'grossly misinterpreted': PML-N

Militants from Pakistan attacked Mumbai: Sharif Nawaz Sharif agrees to Pakistan's involvement in Mumbai attack

"Nawaz Sharif said that he neither said any such thing, nor can it be said on the basis of assumptions that planning for the Mumbai attacks was done in Pakistan", said the PM, who met Nawaz shortly after the NSC meeting ended. "I have clarified those", he asserted.

"Why can't we complete the trial?"

The Indian and Pakistani media, and Pakistani politicians too, have largely focussed on Sharif's clear but indirect reference to Pakistani terrorist organisations operating against India and the country's handling of the 26/11 Mumbai terrorist attack trial.

However, it is reported that the ruling party's leaders are in a state of confusion as Nawaz has said he will stick by his earlier statements.

Chairman Imran Khan on Sunday took an exception to ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif's remarks about Mumbai attacks which he made in an interview with a leading English daily.

"The Indian Army will have to make sure that India is a safe country", Sitharaman told a press conference here, in response to a query, adding that the Army has to handle firmly any terrorism which threatens peace and harmony of Jammu and Kashmir besides the rest of India also.

The petition, filed by political party Pakistan Awaami Tehreek's (PAT) Khurram Nawaz Gandapur, stated that Sharif's statement was against national security and state institutions.

"In the light of this admission, it is about time for the worldwide community to devise a strategy to end Pakistani army generals' involvement in civilian affairs and to establish a true democratic set up in Pakistan where all ethnic and religious groups have equal representations in decision-making", Nusrat said. "We must look into it".


A crucial meeting of the NSC was held in Islamabad with Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi in the chair to discuss the situation arising out of the PML-N supreme leader's remarks. "Nawaz Sharif is still our Quaid", he reassured.

Pakistani newspaper Dawn published an interview with the country's former prime minister, Nawaz Sharif, on Saturday that has stirred up a firestorm in the country.

Meanwhile, Pakistan has been in the state of war since from the day of partition.

"Is PML-N a political party?"

However, after coming under severe criticism from all quarters over his Mumbai attacks remarks, Sharif yesterday said that his comments had been "grossly misinterpreted" by the media. "Will speak the truth come what may", added the former prime minister.

To a query on Karnataka exit polls, she said the BJP will form the government in the state as the Congress will face defeat.

In the interview, Sharif said: "We have isolated ourselves". The story of Afghanistan was accepted, but not ours.

He stresses "After all, it was Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif who, resisting all pressures, took the most important and most hard decision on national security in Pakistan's history by making the country a nuclear power in May 1998".
