Nawaz rejects NSC response over Mumbai attacks' remarks as baseless

Sharif's statement has left the Pakistan Army extremely anxious that "this will give more weight to India's narrative that Pakistan is not doing enough" with respect to the 26/11 trial, and could even put Pakistan on the blacklist of global financial trade agreements.

The PTI chief said two former interior ministers - Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan and Rehman Malik - had given similar statements that Ajmal Kasab and other attackers were non-state actors and that the then government was not aware of their nefarious designs.

The statement by the Prime Minister Office added: "The participants observed that it was very unfortunate that the opinion arising out of either misconceptions or grievances was being presented in disregard of concrete facts and realities".

He said Mr Sharif had failed to answer two questions put forward by the court during the Panama Papers case hearing - how the former prime minister made a fortune of Rs300 billion and how it was sent overseas. "We must look into it", he had said in the interview. Explain it to me.

Responding to a question that Mr Sharif had sought formation of commission on the issue of his interview and if he was found guilty he should be hanged, the PTI chief said: "I am afraid this may come true".

A meeting of the National Security Committee (NSC) has been scheduled on the army's "suggestion" to discuss the "recent misleading media statement regarding Mumbai incident", said Director General of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor.

Efforts by Pakistan to put on trial those India says are responsible for the Mumbai attack have stalled, while Saeed operates largely freely in Pakistan. "When Nawaz Sharif could not answer, he started maligning the judiciary and the army in a bid to seek help of global establishment", he added.

The opposition Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) party also slammed the former prime minister for implying that Pakistan allowed the attacks to happen. "Call them non-state actors, should we allow them to cross the border and kill 150 people in Mumbai?" said Sharif, referring to the 2008 attacks, in which at least 160 people were killed by gunmen in attacks on hotels and transportation infrastructure in the Indian business hub. "He hurt the national interest of Pakistan by violating his oath as an ex-prime minister and should be proceeded against for treason", Khan said at a news conference.

"Militant organizations are active". India's Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman also harped on Sharif's comments, claiming that the Indian intelligence units have also maintained the same narrative, of how the 2008 attacks went down, for the longest time. He said that he is not resigning. At least 166 Indians and foreigners were killed in the bloodbath. "During the meeting we made a resolve that Pakistan's soil will not be allowed to be used for terrorism", he said, adding: "I am not here to clarify Nawaz's position, the goal of this media talk is to clear the air of confusion".

"We have isolated ourselves". Despite giving sacrifices, our narrative is not being accepted. "We must look into it", he added. "Nawaz Sharif has no realisation what damage he has done to the country and its image", he added.

Lieutenant General Talat Masood, a retired Army officer and former secretary of Pakistan's Ministry of Defense Production, says the NSC meetings are created to maintain the Army narrative, so the handout shouldn't be interpreted as the civilian government stepping away from Nawaz's statement.
