Take Steps On Pak Involvement In Terror Activities, Congress Tells Centre

Cashing in on the Nawaz Sharif's interview, Indian media however has again gone into a frenzied campaign to malign Pakistan so that its government could launch a fresh strive to mop up world support against Islamabad. "Being held tomorrow morning", said Ghafoor.

Nawaz Sharif, in a recent interview said, "Militant organisations are active".

On May 12, 2918, Sharif publicly acknowledged that militant organisations were active in Pakistan and questioned the policy to allow the "non-state actors" to cross the border and "kill" people in Mumbai, as per a media report. "Explain it to me", he asked, in a clear reference to the Mumbai killings blamed on 10 Pakistani terrorists. "Why can't we complete the trial?" he said, according to the newspaper.

US President Donald Trump had accused Pakistan of giving nothing to the US but "lies and deceit" and providing "safe haven" to terrorists.

She said that the former prime minister's statement compromised Pakistan's narrative in the war against terrorism and demanded that he retract his remarks. Sharif has admitted in the past before senior American Congressmen that Pak nationals were involved in the Mumbai attacks.

The political parties have not taken the statement of Nawaz Sharif in good taste.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf founder and former cricket captain Imran Khan tweeted his condemnation of Sharif's remarks Sunday. 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. The Pakistan-based terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba which is headed by United Nations designated global terrorist Hafiz Saeed was blamed for the Mumbai bloodbath.

Congress leader Pawan Khera also called for action by the global community against Pakistan for carrying out terror activities in India.

"After all, it was Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif who, resisting all pressures, took the most important and most hard decision on national security in Pakistan's history by making the country a nuclear power in May 1998", he said. "Nawaz speaking Modis language against Pak State simply to protect his ill-gotten Rs 300 billion stashed in his sons companies overseas", he said on Twitter.

"Our mothers and sisters are being killed in Kashmir".

But his words indicate that the actions of the aforementioned were facilitated by the Pakistan state. Former High Commissioner to Pakistan and seasoned diplomat G Parthasarathy told ET "Neither the Pak Army nor the ISI is keen to bring the perpetrators to justice despite earlier efforts by Sharif to improve ties with India".
