Nawaz Sharif playing in hands of foreigners: Sheikh Rasheed

Pakistan condemns ex-PM Sharif over comment on attack on India

Without naming any names, ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif, made controversial statements in an interview to DAWN, when he questioned Islamabad's policy to allow the "non-state actors" to cross the border and "kill" people in Mumbai in 2008, PTI reported.

Addressing media a day after the NSC meeting at the Prime Minister's House, said that the statement coming from the NSC was in complete contrast to the stance taken by leaders of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz), including Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.

During his national Assembly address today, the premier expressed that the statement of his predecessor Nawaz Sharif over Mumbai attacks was misreported, blaming Indian media for using it to its advantage. The National Security Committee (NSC) which met yesterday had condemned the "fallacious" statement by Sharif about the Mumbai terror attack and termed it as "incorrect and misleading". He insisted that there is a need to form a national commission to carry out a probe to ascertain the facts.

The spokesman said the PML-N as the country's premier popular national political party and its supreme leader (Nawaz Sharif) need no certificate from anybody on their commitment and capacity to preserve, protect and promote Pakistan's national security.

"Well me which country stands with us, is there any?" he asked. "And the person who is asking this question has been labelled a traitor". He said that Sharif had accused him of withdrawing forces from Kargil. I am not an ordinary citizen but a three-time prime minister elected by the people of Pakistan.

Former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, on Saturday, ruffled more than a few feathers when he openly acknowledged that militant organisations operative in Pakistan, crossed the border to "kill" people in Mumbai, in an apparent reference to the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai.

India blamed the Pakistan-based militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) for the 2008 attack on the city of Mumbai. Kasab was executed after a court found him guilty and handed down the death sentence.
