Pak Military Goes Into A Huddle Over Nawaz Sharif's 26/11 Remarks

The Mumbai attacks-related trials are stalled in a Rawalpindi anti-terrorism court. Speaking to Pakistan's Dawn news organisation, Sharif, who is now tangled in legal cases slammed the slow probe and questioned the authorities who allowed the Mumbai attacks to take place from Pakistan soil.

In an unprecedented move, the former Prime Minister admitted Saturday that militant outfits are active in the country, and were responsible for crossing the border and killing people in Mumbai on 26 November 2008.

To a question on Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti's call for a unilateral ceasefire in the state during the month of Ramzan till completion of the Amarnath Yatra, Sitharaman said, "I think it is important to handle J&K affairs with a great deal of sensitivity. If India casts an evil eye upon Pakistan then the army and people of Pakistan will give a befitting reply", he said. He is actively organising collection of donations in Punjab coinciding with the wheat harvesting season, said a report quoting sources.

The daily also reported that PPP leader Manzoor Watoo had declared the interview to be a serious attack on Pakistan's national interests, and Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal secretary general Liaqat Baloch said Sharif's statement was "shocking" and "supported the narrative of anti-Pakistan forces". Despite giving sacrifices, our narrative is not being accepted. "It's absolutely unacceptable. President (Vladimir) Putin has said it. President Xi (Jinping) has said it", Mr. Sharif said. In February, the apex court also disqualified Sharif as the head of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N). Indian officials say Pakistan did not keep its end of the bargain and sent the case to court without really investigating the conspiracy that led to the attacks.

Some 166 people were killed in the attack carried out by 10 LeT men.

The lone survivor, Ajmal Amir Kasab, was caught and was sentenced to death at Yerwada Central Jail in Pune in 2012.
