Nawaz Sharif Faces Backlash Over '26/11' Remark

Nawaz Sharif Faces Backlash Over '26/11' Remark

Sharif had asked in the interview, referring to the Mumbai attacks-related trial proceedings stalled in the Rawalpindi anti-terrorism court.

Pakistan's top civil and military leadership on Monday condemned the "fallacious" statement by ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif about the Mumbai terror attack and termed it as "incorrect and misleading".

He said Mr Sharif had failed to answer two questions put forward by the court during the Panama Papers case hearing - how the former prime minister made a fortune of Rs300 billion and how it was sent overseas.

"Surjewala further said: "Our second question to Modi is, will you show the courage of conviction and the 56" chest to ensure that the trial of 26/11 perpetrators, who are neither being adequately tried nor punished in Pakistan, is either held under the guidance of global agencies or they are handed over alternatively to India?"

"We know that Shahid Khaqan Abbasi is with Nawaz Sharif in corruption in many ventures, including import of liquefied natural gas (LNG), and, therefore, he is protecting Nawaz Sharif", Mr Khan added. Explain it to me.

According to a communique released on Monday, the NSC meeting recalled that it was not Pakistan, but India that had delayed the finalisation of the case.

"The PML-N would like to set the record straight on the interview of PML-N supreme leader Nawaz Sharif carried on Saturday by Dawn", the spokesman stated.

They observed that it was very unfortunate that the opinion arising out of either misconceptions or grievances was being presented in disregard of concrete facts and realities.

"I urge everyone to condemn and reject Nawaz's interview to an English daily as it is an act of treason against the state", the resolution read.

Federal Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal was also mentioned as a respondent in the petition apart from Sharif, the Express Tribune reported. During the interview, Nawaz had said, "Militant organisations are active". At least 166 Indians and foreigners were killed in the bloodbath.

The United States also blames LeT for the Mumbai attacks and has offered US$10 million (RM39.5 million) for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Hafiz Saeed, who heads Muslim charity Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD), which Washington says is a front for LeT.

"We have isolated ourselves".

He dispelled an impression that those who were involved in the Mumbai attacks were deliberately sent to India from Pakistan.
