Nawaz Sharif Admits That Infamous 26/11 Mumbai Attacks Were Carried Out By Pak Terrorists

PML-N vows legal action against NAB chief if he doesn't apologize

Nawaz Sharif, the Ex Prime Minister of Pakistan, seems to have confirmed a Pakistani terrorists were responsible for the 26/11 terror attacks on Mumbai, that took place in 2008.

The Mumbai attacks-related trials are stalled in a Rawalpindi anti-terrorism court.

Sharif, who was deposed following corruption charges, said ahead of a public rally in Multan in Punjab: "You can't run a country if you have two or three parallel governments".

Pakistan has always denied that it has a role in the 2008 Mumbai attacks.

Although he chose to describe Kasab and others as " non-state actors", he also seemed to acknowledge the complicity of government agencies in letting the Lashkar terrorists reach Mumbai. Nawaz said that we have separated ourselves.

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. Explain it to me. Despite giving sacrifices, our narrative is not being accepted. "Why can't we complete the trial?" he was quoted as saying.

The ousted PM was questioned why Pakistan has not yet completed the trial in the 26/11 case. This is a rare admission from a top Pakistan political leader, nearly 10 years after the terrorist attacks in Mumbai in November 2008. Afghanistan's narrative is being accepted, but ours is not. One of them was caught and hanged. "We must look into it", Sharif told Dawn.

The petition, which has been filed by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Noor Ahmed Awan, states that the National Accountability Bureau had released a press release on May 8 which stated that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif was involved in transferring money to India.
