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

The Pakistan Army will hold a high-level meeting tomorrow to discuss the "recent misleading media statement" about Mumbai terror attack, officials said today, a day after ousted premier Nawaz Sharif questioned the policy to allow "non-state actors" to cross the border and "kill" people in Mumbai. Speaking to Pakistan's Dawn news organisation, Sharif, who is now tangled in legal cases slammed the slow probe and questioned the authorities who allowed the Mumbai attacks to take place from Pakistan soil. "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?"

In an interview with a local daily on Friday, Nawaz Sharif had criticised the ostensible delay in the conclusion of the Mumbai attacks trial.

Rehman warned that such reckless statements inflict damage on Pakistan's narrative while apprising at the same time that country has tendered unrivalled sacrifices in war on terror.

In his address at a public rally in Sindhri, the Punjab chief minister said that India is conspiring against Pakistan by using Afghan soil.

"Addressing a press conference on Sunday in Delhi, Defence Minister Sitharaman said", It's a very important confession which has been made by the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, and the Government of India has always maintained that it was, in fact, Pakistan who the mastermind behind the attacks".

US President Donald Trump had accused Pakistan of giving nothing to the US but "lies and deceit" and providing "safe haven" to terrorists. Afghanistans narrative is being accepted, but ours is not.

Meanwhile, the Pakistan Army has chose to hold a high-level meeting on Monday to discuss the "recent misleading media statement" about Mumbai terror attack, PTI reported. "We must look into it", he said. Since the incident took place in India, so 90 percent of the evidences were in India who was evading sharing evidences with the investigation agencies of Pakistan, he added.

He 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".

Lakhvi, and the other suspects - Abdul Wajid, Mazhar Iqbal, Hammad Amin Sadiq, Shahid Jameel Riaz, Jamil Ahmed and Younus Anjum - are being tried by the Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) in Islamabad since 2009.

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

Pakistan has so far not completed trial in the 26/11 case.
