Sharif Dares Pakistan Army Over Mumbai Terror Attacks

Sharif Dares Pakistan Army Over Mumbai Terror Attacks

His daughter Maryam Nawaz at a rally in Buner said the "traitor" card was being used to tarnish the image of her father after dislodging him as Prime Minister on false charges of corruption.

It said that the bureau's press release was based on a media report which had referred to the World Bank's Migration and Remittance Fact Book Report 2016 alleging the sending of $4.9bn to India.

However, the same day when the NAB's presser came, the WB issued a statement to deny that its report from 2016 levelled money-laundering allegations against the former PM.

The Diplomat report by Ankit Panda states that Pakistani newspaper Dawn published an interview with the country's former prime minister, Nawaz Sharif, on Saturday that has stirred up a firestorm in the country.

Sharif, in the Dawn interview, obliquely criticized the military by denouncing "parallel governments". He has denounced non-state actors for crossing the border and killing people in Mumbai.

According to media reports, the NAB chairman in his response to the appearance informed the committee that he has prior commitments, saying that he received the notice for the appearance in the morning. "We should find out who laid the foundation of terrorism in the country", he said.

The prime minister while addressing in the NA asked the house to constitute a committee in this regard.

After NSC meeting, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi met Mian Nawaz Sharif and later told newsmen that statement of the former Premier has been misrepresented by Indian media and people of Pakistan should not become party to the propaganda. Under these circumstances, no one knows for sure what is in store for politics of the country in coming days. He said Pervaiz Musharraf, Rehman Malik and others had also given such statements in the past.

In Punjab Assembly, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf-led opposition demanded "hang Nawaz Sharif for his pro-India statement".

India's stand on the Mumbai attacks stands vindicated following Sharif's confession.

Mr Sharif is facing ire for "harming national interests" from opponents as well as some of the estranged leaders from his Pakistan Muslims League-Nawaz (PML-N) party for allegedly supporting the Indian narrative on the attack case.

Abbasi said this while talking to senior journalists after an emergency meeting of the National Security Committee (NSC) - Pakistan's top civil-military body - that condemned Sharif's "fallacious" statement and termed it as "incorrect and misleading".
