Nawaz Sharif Admits Pakistani Terrorists Carried Out 26/11 Mumbai Attacks

A meeting of Pakistan's National Security Committee, held on Monday to discuss the fallout of an interview given by ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif regarding the 2008 Mumbai attacks, unanimously declared his statements "incorrect and misleading".

In response to a question on civil military issues in the country, Abbasi said misunderstandings occur but are removed when facts are brought to the fore.

In the 'Dawn' interview, Sharif also lamented that Pakistan had isolated itself.

He said: "Militant organisations are active".

Washington D.C., May 14: The Voice of Karachi chairman Nadeem Nusrat has welcomed the former Pakistani prime minister Nawaz Sharif's frank admission about the presence of "non-state actors" on Pakistani soil and their involvement in cross-border terrorism.

A spokesman for Sharif said: "At the outset, statement of Nawaz Sharif has been grossly misinterpreted by the Indian media. [Chinese] President Xi has said it".

Mr Abbasi said that he will not resign and complete the term.

Sharif's comments have also allow the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz's opponents a new opportunity to attack the ruling party.

"The participants unanimously rejected the allegations and condemned the fallacious assertions", it added. They manipulated his (Sharif's) statement to create an issue...

In the interview, Sharif had appeared to admit state endorsement for militant organizations based in Pakistan.

He was referring to a trial pending for the last several years, with Pakistan accusing India of not sharing evidence that could help end the trial.

Operation Zarb-e-Azb was a joint military offensive conducted by the Pakistan Armed Forces against various militant group in 2014. "It is about time to put an end to this insane adventurism and start spending money on projects that actually serve common Pakistanis, such as education, health and human development", he added.

It faces sanctions if it does not implement reforms by this summer.

"The statements attributed to Sharif are factually incorrect and are being presented in a wrong light by the Indian media". Since the creation of Pakistan, this military establishment has persistently targeted non-Punjabi ethnic groups and has stopped democracy from flourishing in the country.

Other parties, too, criticised the three-time prime minister's comments. "Unfortunately, a section of Pakistani electronic and social media has intentionally or unintentionally not only validated but has lent credence to the malicious propaganda of Indian media without going through the full facts of the statement", he said.

Leader of the opposition, Sherry Rehman on Sunday slammed Nawaz Sharif for his recent remarks on the Mumbai attacks. "Painful to see such talk from a former PM either calculated to divert attention or just casual chatter".
