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

The Bangladesh success story

On Saturday, Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif admitted in an interview to Pakistani media that Pakistan played a role in the 26/11 + Mumbai terror attacks. "We must look into it", he said.

Former Prime Minister of Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif has publicly acknowledged that Pakistan has isolated itself by its support for militant organisations and use of non-state actors as central to its foreign policy.

On 26 November 2008, 10 armed Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists entered Mumbai via sea and exploded bombs and killed people with indiscriminate firing via automatic rifles at several spots in Mumbai. He said by blaming Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif has actually presented himself to the enemies as an offer to become an approver against Pakistan to malign country through sheer lies.

He was called to Pakistan by a person who is wanted in for terrorist activities in Mumbai.

He is under attack from opponents as well as some of the estranged leaders from his Pakistan Muslims League-Nawaz (PML-N) party for allegedly supporting the Indian narrative on the Mumbai attack case and harming national interests.

"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.

Militant organisations known as non-state elements, are still active in Pakistan, he added.

"It only proves that India's stand has been right all the way, she said". Explain it to me.

Kasab was hanged in such haste, Nisar said, so that the Mumbai attacks could be used as a tool for "Pakistan bashing" across the world on political basis.

The former interior minister also questioned the haste in hanging Ajmal Kasab, the only terrorist captured alive, and asserted it was done to bash Pakistan in global forums. "Why can't we complete the trial?" - a reference to the Mumbai attacks-related trials which have stalled in a Rawalpindi anti-terrorism court.

Former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Sunday stressed that the uncooperative attitude and stubbornness of the Indian government has been the biggest obstacle in the Mumbai terror attacks trial reaching a conclusion.

Leader of the opposition, Sherry Rehman on Sunday slammed Nawaz Sharif for his recent remarks on the Mumbai attacks.
