Pakistan played a role in 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks: Nawaz Sharif

The Bangladesh success story

"The participants 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", the statement by the PM House said. The attack killed almost 166 people, including foreign nationals after 10 Pakistani gunmen spent three days spraying bullets and throwing grenades around city landmarks. "Why can't we complete the trial".

The Mumbai attack case has entered into the 10th year but none of its suspects in Pakistan has been punished yet, showing that the case had never been in the priority list of Islamabad that appears to be keen to put it under the carpet.

"Is PML-N a political party? President Putin has said it. President Xi has said it", Mr Nawaz had said.

"Meanwhile, Pakistan continues to await cooperation from India regarding the arrest of Indian spy KulbhushanJadhav and the Samjhota Express attack, the statement said".

Pakistan's powerful military called for the discussion after Sharif's comments were published over the weekend in Dawn, Pakistan's leading English-language daily newspaper.

The bit from the interview that has drawn the most interest is Sharif's decision to acknowledge the role of non-state groups in the November 26, 2008, Mumbai attacks.

Pakistan Stock Exchange on Monday saw a downfall of 1,095 points as the political situation in country remains uncertain after controversial remarks by former premier Nawaz Sharif regarding Mumbai attacks. "We must look into it", he added.

Pakistan has rejected its former prime minister Nawaz Sharif's comments on the 2008 Mumbai attacks and termed it "completely false and misleading", the Geo TV reported.

Or is one to presume that he was helpless because his government was working under the command of the Pakistan Army and the ISI?

Sharif was slammed after last week's Dawn interview in which he had stated that "militant organisations were active in Pakistan and "such terror strikes (26/11) could have been prevented".

Nawaz said that we have separated ourselves. Afghanistan's narrative is being accepted, but ours is not.

Fawad Chaudhry, secretary of information for PTI, said that Sharif was trying to appease the worldwide establishment through his "anti-Pakistan" statements.

"Will Prime Minister Modi show the courage of conviction and the 56-inch chest to ensure that action is taken against the perpetrators of 26/11, who are neither being adequately tried nor punished in Pakistan?" They reveal that while both countries are publicly acknowledging that Pakistan is acting against terrorism - and China is going the full distance by preventing the United Nations listing of Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar as an global terrorist - both countries, in private and at the highest levels, are asking Pakistan to stop supporting terrorist groups acting outside the country.
