Treason petition in Pakistan court against Sharif

Nawaz Sharif has revealed in an interview that those who attacked hotel in Mumbai were from Pakistan

Nawaz Sharif has revealed in an interview that those who attacked hotel in Mumbai were from Pakistan

Explain it to me.

India has long accused Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba of carrying out the attacks in Mumbai on 26 November, 2008, that left 166 people dead and many injured after 10 terrorists with backpacks, automatic weapons and grenades launched a three-day siege on India's financial capital, targeting multiple locations.

The disgruntled PML-N member said, "There was no bigger evidence of the Indian government's lack of interest in taking the case to its end than its refusal to allow FIA to question the only living proof of the attacks: Ajmal Kasab". This is exactly what we are struggling for. "President (Vladimir) Putin has said it. President Xi (Jinping) has said it", Mr Sharif said. However, the comments by Sharif, the party's leader, will increase tensions in an already fraught relationship between the powerful military which has ruled the nation for much of its 70 years and the civilian government before elections this year.

Separately, on his Twitter handle, he had stated, "The PML-N rejects all assertions, direct or implied, made in news report of DAWN, dated 12-5-18". We strongly believe that the handlers of the attack were in Pakistan.

"There can and shall never be any compromise on any national interest".

Attempting damage control, the ruling Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N, Nawaz's group) on Sunday heaped blame on the media for "misinterpreting" the interview.

However, as much as he is remembered for his policing skills, many in the force remember him for his impressive personality. Mumbai: Maharashtra Police official Himanshu Roy shot himself in mouth after getting frustrated with his disease - Cancer .

The PML-N claims that Nawaz was "grossly misinterpreted by the Indian media" as a part of malicious propaganda which was unintentionally or intentionally validated by Pakistani media.

Khursheed Shah said responsibility lied on all of them when it was a matter of national security.

Facing a volley of criticism for his statements in an English daily, deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif said on Monday that he will continue to speak the truth and he considers it as his national and moral duty to do so.

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.

A petition was submitted in the Lahore High Court (LHC) on Monday to register a treason case against ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif following his controversial remarks on 2008 Mumbai attacks. However, PMO, remained silent regarding the convening of the NSC meeting.

In regards to the controversies, Pakistan's army spokesperson Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor had announced that they had "suggested" that the NSC meeting be called to clarify the country's stance on the statement. They believe that the announcement by the ISPR chief through social media indicates that the military authorities have chose to seriously take up the issue and that they want Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi's stance over the matter.
