Nawaz Sharif Admits Pakistani Terrorists Carried Out 26/11 Mumbai Attacks

"I hate to admit that the 26/11 Mumbai attack carried out by a terror group based in Pakistan on 26 November 2008 is a classic trans-border terrorist event", Durrani had said in 2017.

The remark contradicts the official stand of Islamabad, which insists that India has not furnished enough evidence to prove that Pakistani terrorists were involved.

"It isn't possible that we let them go across the border and kill 150 innocents", the Punjab CM doubled down. Explain it to me. "Why can't we complete the trial?" Mr Sharif said during an interview, reported Pakistan's Dawn newspaper. Afghanistan's narrative is being accepted, but ours is not.

Asked why he was ousted from public office, Sharif did not reply directly but steered the conversation towards foreign policy and national security, the Dawn said. "PPP rejects Nawaz Sharif's statement and stance (on Mumbai attacks)".

Former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, weighing on the recent wave of discussion on the 2008 Mumbai attacks, remarked earlier today that the incident was used by India to malign Pakistan. Sharif asked, referring to the masterminds of the Mumbai massacre that nearly brought India and Pakistan to war. "The lack of cooperation by India was the biggest hurdle in the investigation".

Leading opposition leader and cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan said that Sharif was speaking the language of (Indian Prime Minister) Narendra Modi and cooperating against enemies of Pakistan to harm the country.

He also claimed that although Pakistan had cooperated with the Indian government for information-sharing regarding every terrorist incident, India had not reciprocated for incidents inside Pakistan.

"Nawaz Sharif is the modern-day Mir Jafar, who collaborated with the British to enslave his nation for personal gains".

The trial of Pakistani suspects in the Mumbai attacks case had virtually come to a standstill after the governments of Pakistan and India had a row over the testimony of 24 Indian witnesses.

The channel accused him of being pro-India and anti-Pakistan.

For context, on top of the previous charges of withholding the declaration of income and the Panama Papers leak, Pakistan's top anti-corruption body has recently ordered a probe against Sharif for allegedly laundering $4.9 billion to India.
