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

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

Former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has implicitly criticised the "parallel governments" - or the military establishment - for fostering Pakistan's global isolation by harbouring militant organisations and stalling the trial of 26/11 Mumbai terror attack.

Highlighting former PM's performance, the statement said: "After all, it was Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif who, resisting all pressures, took the most important and most hard decision on national security in Pakistan's history by making the country a nuclear power in May 1998".

With elections in Pakistan due in 2019, Sharif, though debarred from holding public office by the apex court, is leaving no stone unturned in ensuring that his party, Pakistan Muslim League-N, returns to power.

"Pakistan has tried to cooperate with India in the case from the start".

"It isn't possible that we let them go across the border and kill 150 innocents", the Punjab CM doubled down. "Explain it to me", he asked, in a clear reference to the Mumbai killings blamed on 10 Pakistani terrorists. "Why can't we complete the trial", Sharif said, raising questions at the judiciary.

Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan, meanwhile, decried Mr Sharif's statement terming it as a conspiracy to pressurise Pakistan and undermine its institutions. Comparing income tax cases against former finance minister P. Chidambaram with the corruption charges against Sharif, she said in a press conference in Delhi Sunday: "In India, for the Congress party, this is the Nawaz Sharif moment". "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".

Israel approves controversial Jerusalem cable auto project
Pompeo said he was aware that there could be security concerns for U.S. embassies and citizens in the region in the coming days. The embassy will officially open Monday, May 14, marking the 70th anniversary of Israel's founding.

Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Monday said that he is not the first one to have admitted these facts, while referring to his comments in a recent interview, which has sparked a controversy, wherein he had said, "Militant organisations are active".

Sharif is the modern-day Mir Jafar, who collaborated with the British to enslave his nation for personal gains. The six-man Supreme Court-mandated investigative team that brought about Sharif's latest downfall a year ago also included two active members of the military's intelligence arms. But Nawaz is spreading poison against the state.

"This disclosure of Sharif would definitely embarrass the Pakistan army and the ISI on the worldwide platform", Nikam said.

"He continued: "Militant organisations are active".

The 2008 Mumbai attacks had nearly pushed the two nuclear armed countries into war.

"There is no concrete evidence linking Pakistan to the Mumbai attacks or for Mumbai to proceed with a trial".
