"Proves India's Stand": Nirmala Sitharaman On Nawaz Sharif's 26/11 Remark

Afghanistans narrative is being accepted, but ours is not.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz President Shehbaz Sharif on Sunday said that Nawaz's interview was twisted out of context by his political opponents.

India has accused the Pakistani military of supporting terrorists to wage a proxy war.

"Militant organisations are active". For the first time, Nawaz 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. "Explain it to me", he asked, in a clear reference to the Mumbai killings blamed on 10 Pakistani terrorists. "Why cant we complete the trial".

The Nation tried to contact ministers and senior leaders of the ruling party but they either did not receive the call or refused to comment on Nawaz's remarks by presenting different excuses.

The 2016 Panama Papers leak also revealed that Sharif's family held millions of dollars worth of shares and property in companies in the United Kingdom, and around the world.

Traders often add the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI) to identify the direction of a trend. A CCI reading above the +100 level would suggest that the stock is overbought and possibly primed for a correction.

He also claimed that although Pakistan had cooperated with the Indian government for information-sharing regarding every terrorist incident, India had not reciprocated for incidents inside Pakistan. "PPP rejects Nawaz Sharif's statement and stance (on Mumbai attacks). It has become evident that Nawaz Sharif was bent upon launching a campaign against the interests of the country by using Indian Money and Cannons", he alleged. The trial of 2008 Mumbai terror attack remains stalled in a Rawalpindi anti-terrorism court with the government recently removing the public prosecutor from the case in an alleged abrupt fashion. He said he was shocked to read the PML-N supremo interview. She added that the Indian government has always maintained that Pakistan was the "mastermind" behind the attacks.

The PTI leader said India also failed to give any proof at worldwide level about Pakistan's involvement in the attack.

Congress leader Pawan Khera also called for action by the global community against Pakistan for carrying out terror activities in India. "Former Pakistan Prime Minister should have accepted the truth earlier", he told ANI.

Muthida Majlise Amal Secretary General Liaqat Baloch said Nawaz Sharif's statement was shocking and it supported the narrative of anti-Pakistan forces.

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 worldwide forums.

A meeting of the National Security Committee (NSC) has been suggested to Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi to discuss misleading media statement on the Mumbai incident, Director-General of the Inter-Services Public Relations said on Sunday.
