India's stubbornness hampered proceedings of Mumbai attacks case: Nisar

India's stubbornness hampered proceedings of Mumbai attacks case: Nisar

Should we allow them to cross the border and kill 150 people in Mumbai? "It (Sharif's remarks) only proves that India's stand has been right all the way". "Why can't we complete the trial?" - a reference to the Mumbai attacks-related trials which have stalled in a Rawalpindi anti-terrorism court.

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.

Questioning the timing of the revelation, Khan said Sharif was in power for four years and did not speak out a word about the Mumbai attacks. Afghanistan's narrative is being accepted, but ours is not. Sharif said while giving an interview to Dawn.

"The PML-N would like to set the record straight on the interview of PML-N supreme leader Nawaz Sharif carried yesterday by Dawn", he said in a statement issued here.

Meanwhile, the Pakistan Army has made a decision to hold a high-level meeting on Monday to discuss the "recent misleading media statement" about Mumbai terror attack, PTI reported. Since the incident took place in India, so 90 percent of the evidences were in India who was evading sharing evidences with the investigation agencies of Pakistan, he added. "There was no bigger evidence of the Indian government's lack of interest in taking the case to its end than its refusal to allow FIA to question Kasab", he said.

Cabinet Committee on Defence and National Security should bar Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, ministers and all government functionaries to meet or have any contact with ousted PM Nawaz Sharif while legal proceedings should be initiated against him under the official secret act, demanded former federal minister Muhammad Ali Durrani on Sunday.

Leading opposition leader and cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan said that Sharif was speaking the language of (Indian Prime Minister) Narendra Modi and cooperating against enemies of Pakistan to harm the country. "Sharif had asked in the interview", he had said. "India should also help in freedom of Balochistan, only then Pakistan will correct its course".

Sharif's outburst comes at a time when he himself has been mired in controversy.

The trial of Pakistani suspects in the Mumbai attacks case had virtually come to a standstill after the governments of Pakistan and India had a row over the testimony of 24 Indian witnesses.
