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

Nawaz Sharif agrees to Pakistan's involvement in Mumbai attack

The trial for the 26/11 attacks are stuck in a court in Rawalpindi since 2009 and have made little progress despite voluminous evidence forwarded by Indian in dossiers to Pakistan including the intercepts between the terror masterminds and the terrorists in Mumbai. The Minister said it proved India's position that the handlers of 26/11 Mumbai terror attack were in Pakistan.

Pakistan's longest serving PM, Sharif was disqualified for life from office by the Supreme Court in 2017 for not disclosing the income he received in 2013 from his son's Dubai-based Capital FZE company.

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi chaired a session of the National Security Committee (NSC) to discuss former premier Nawaz Sharif's recent "misleading media statement" on the 2008 Mumbai attacks, sources said on Monday.

"We have isolated ourselves".

Sharif's remarks to Dawn were also perhaps dictated by his disenchantment with the Pakistan military establishment whom he and his party, PML-N, considers as being responsible for his ouster. Explain it to me.

He claimed that although Pakistan had cooperated with the Indian government for information-sharing regarding every terrorist incident, India had not reciprocated for incidents taking place inside Pakistan. He even acknowledged that militant organisations were active in the country. Afghanistans narrative is being accepted, but ours is not. "We must look into it", he said before speaking on the Mumbai attack.


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.

For the first time, Sharif also questioned Pakistan's policy to allow the "non-state actors" to cross the border and "kill" people in Mumbai, according to a media report. "Why can't we complete the trial".

In a statement, the PTI chief said, "Nawaz Sharif is the modern-day Mir Jafar, who collaborated with the British to enslave his nation for personal gains".

"India always shows aggression when it comes to incidents such as that of Kulbushan Jadhav", he said, referring to the Indian spy facing a death sentence in Pakistan. The six-man Supreme Court-mandated investigative team that brought about Sharif's latest downfall past year also included two active members of the military's intelligence arms. "President (Vladimir) Putin has said it. President Xi (Jinping) has said it", Sharif said.

The attack occurred in India, where 90 percent of the proofs were present but India refused to share those with Pakistan, he remarked.
