Call them non-state actors, should we allow them to cross the border and kill 150 people in Mumbai? "I have clarified those", he asserted.
Speaking to Pakistan's Dawn daily on Saturday, May 12, former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharief suggested that his country was behind the deadly 26/11 Mumbai attacks that killed 164 people and injured over 300 others.
Mr Sharif is facing ire for "harming national interests" from opponents as well as some of the estranged leaders from his Pakistan Muslims League-Nawaz (PML-N) party for allegedly supporting the Indian narrative on the attack case.
Meanwhile, Opposition leader in the Senate, Sherry Rehman, criticised Sharif's remarks, and questioned the performance of his own party's government in tackling extremism. "President Putin has said it. President Xi has said it,".
FOX closed the sitcom "Brooklyn 9-9" - but NBC saved him
Rumours started to swirl that another network would pick the show up for a sixth season immediately following its cancellation. Andy Samberg , meanwhile, celebrated the news on stage at NBC's morning presentation at Radio City Music Hall.
Sharif's interview ignited controversy on both sides of the border, with Pakistani politicians deriding his remarks as unpatriotic while Indian media portrayed the interview as an admission of Pakistan's role in the attacks.
In a statement, the PTI chief said, "Nawaz Sharif is the modern-day Mir Jafar, who collaborated with the British to enslave his nation for personal gains".
Not only opposition parties, including Pakistan People's Party (PPP) and Pakistan Tehree-i-Insaf (PTI), launched a frontal attack on Sharif after his statement made headlines at home and overseas, but also leaders belonging to the ruling PML-N didn't endorse his statement. He said the PML-N "rejects all assertions, direct or implied, made in the news report of Dawn". "Why can't we complete the trial", said Sharif. Despite making sacrifices, our narrative is not being accepted.
Why Fox Revived Tim Allen's 'Last Man Standing,' in Their Words
Fox scheduled the comedy in the Friday night lineup, claiming that they "were emboldened by Roseanne ", and nothing more. It was ABC's second most-watched comedy after "Modern Family". "Excited?", said Allen in a statement via the network.
"We need to understand the ongoing dynamics and should support our armed forces shoulder to shoulder", he added stressing that an worldwide conspiracy to isolate Pakistan is being hatched.
The NSC meeting, which was attended by the top civil and military leadership, categorically dismissed Nawaz's recent statement on the 2008 Mumbai attacks and unanimously termed it "incorrect and misleading".
Sharif, who was ousted last July by the country's top court for hiding a foreign work visa, previous year also irked the army over suggesting the military's weakness in the face of militant groups. He said since the attack took place, it was the Indian government which possessed "90 per cent of the evidence and facts" of the incident.
She also claimed that her father took all the blame for the 1999 Kargil war for her country's valiant soldiers despite the fact that then army chief General (retd) Pervez Musharraf had initiated the war without his knowledge but is still being called a traitor.
