Nawaz Sharif: Pakistan sent terrorists to India to execute 26/11 attacks

Nawaz Sharif: Pakistan sent terrorists to India to execute 26/11 attacks

Although ex-PM's daughter Maryam Nawaz did not say anything about the statement herself, she retweeted a 2016 story titled "Ex-ISI chief admitted Mumbai attack planners were "our people", claims Husain Haqqani". 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. Explain it to me. Nawaz said that we have separated ourselves. Despite giving sacrifices, our narrative is not being accepted. The story of Afghanistan was accepted, but not ours. "We must look into it", he said. This is a rare admission from a top Pakistan political leader, nearly 10 years after the terrorist attacks in Mumbai in November 2008.

His organisation Jamaat-ud Dawa was declared as a foreign terrorist organisation by the U.S. in June 2014. One of them was caught and hanged. "Why can't we complete the trial?". "It's absolutely unacceptable", he said, referring to the state of terrorism in Pakistan.

The PTI chairman also alleged that Nawaz tried to save his corruption by targeting the apex court, joint investigation team for Panama Leaks case and army.

He said, the United States has accused Pakistan of giving nothing except lies and deceits and providing safe heaven to terrorists. Sharif, though, did not name the 26/11 mastermind, Hafiz Saeed, and Maulana Masood Azhar's Jamaat-ud-Dawah and Jaish-e-Mohammad that operate in Pakistan with impunity. A number of Pakistani witnesses - both official and civilian - have testified and provided evidence against the seven accused, but the Pakistani authorities have been insisting on questioning Indian witnesses for reaching a verdict in the case.

Nawaz Sharif said, there are 3 parallel governments running in Pakistan. There can only be one government: "the constitutional one", he said.
