Pakistan top brass blast ex-PM over Mumbai attack remarks

Pakistan election 2008

Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law retired captain Mohammad Safdar will record their statements in the Avenfield reference at the accountability court on Friday. He has denounced non-state actors for crossing the border and killing people in Mumbai. "Why can't we complete the trial?" he had asked in the interview, referring to the Mumbai attack-related trial proceedings stalled in the Rawalpindi anti-terrorism court. "A decision should be made about who is a patriot and who is a traitor", he added. Pakistan is not getting isolated, it is already isolated.

Nawaz Sharif's harsh criticism against PTI comes as the Chairman PTI Imran Khan doesn't seem letting mounting pressure on the former prime minister get lessened. The remaining two accused, Sharif's sons Hussain and Hassan Nawaz, have been declared absconders. "What did I say in the interview that was wrong".

Sharif, as per an exclusive Dawn news report, in that meeting had raised the issue of Pakistan's growing worldwide isolation because of behind-the-scenes support by military to banned terror groups, including Jaish-e-Muhammad, Jamaat-ud-Dawa and the Haqqani Network. "Pervaiz Rasheed should not have been punished", she said, while responding to a question regarding why the former minister was removed from his post if Dawn leaks was true.

In an interview with the daily Dawn on Saturday, Mr. Sharif said militant organisations were active in Pakistan.

"The report does not include any mention of money laundering nor does it name any individuals", said the World Bank, which was issued after media reports cited its annual report for allegations that Sharif laundered $4.9 billion from Pakistan to India.

Speaking to newsmen inside the accountability court on Wednesday, the supreme leader of ruling Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz expressed that Imran Khan and Tahirul Qadri were amongst many characters who played their part in the protests.

India blamed the Pakistan-based militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) for the 2008 attack on the city of Mumbai. Pakistan admitted the attacks were planned on its soil but denied any official involvement, and did not confirm the gunmen had set sail from Karachi. Kasab was executed after a court found him guilty and handed down the death sentence.
