Nawaz Sharif admits Pakistan's role in 26/11 Mumbai attacks

Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has said Pakistan has isolated itself by its support for militant organisations and use of non-state actors as central to its foreign policy. Call them non-state actors, should we allow them to cross border and kill 150 people in Mumbai? Explain it to me. While speaking to Dawn, the tainted prime minister revealed that Pakistan could have prevented the terrorist attack in Mumbai which consumed the lives of more than 150 people. There is no other way. "Why can't we complete trial?". "The US and the United Kingdom are already convinced of Pakistan's role".

Several publications in India as well as the current affairs shows across the border gave extraordinary coverage to the statement.

Ex-Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has questioned the slow probe going on in the 26/11 Mumbai attacks. Sharif asked, referring to the masterminds of the Mumbai massacre that nearly brought India and Pakistan to war. He also reportedly admitted, in a first, that anti-India terror organisations are indeed operating out of Pakistani soil. The 20 year old terrorist was decided by the court to be hanged to death.

Nawaz Sharif reiterated his demand that the Chairman NAB should himself tender his resignation. Today he spoke like an enemy of Pakistan.

In an interview to "The Dawn" before the rally in Multan on Friday, Nawaz said, 'You cannot run a country when two or three parallel ongoing governments.

There was no comment from the Pakistani military's public relations wing till the filing of this report.

The Bureau also quoted the World Bank's Migration and Remittance Book 2016, saying it corroborates the allegations of money laundering.

The statement of the NAB claims that the amount was laundered to the Indian finance ministry after which Indian foreign exchange reserves witnessed an increase and Pakistan suffered as a result.

Pakistan's economy could have been grown at 7% annually, but it was struggling to get there, Sharif said.
