Nawaz Sharif admits Pakistan hand in 26/11 Mumbai attack

Without naming Mumbai attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed + and Masood Azhar's terror outfits - Jamaat-ud-Dawah and Jaish-e-Mohammad", - operating in the country with impunity, Sharif said: "Militant organisations are active. In an interview published by Pakistani newspaper Dawn on Saturday, he questioned why his country was unable to complete 26/11trial even after nine years.

Nawaz continued, "Militant organisations are active". Explain it to me.

Voicing the Government's stand, Minister of State for Home Affairs, Hansraj Ahir said, "We always maintained that Pakistan is behind terror attacks here".

"Pakistan speaks in a language so that they can gain worldwide sympathy". The entire world knows this reality that Pakistan is responsible for 26/11 terrorist attack in India. Thereafter he admitted openly that it was Pakistan which started terrorism in Kashmir. Official sources cautioned against reading too much into Sharif's words or linking them with his familiarity/friendship with PM Narendra Modi.

News reporter Murtaza Ali Shah wrote on Twitter, "Nawaz Sharif didn't utter a word against Army in his interview but Imran Khan says NS trying to defame Pakistan Army to please foreign forces". He said the statements should not be mistaken for any friendly gesture.

The case of Mumbai attacks is still on in the court since 2009 and the final judgement seems to take its own time, except for Kasab who was found guilty of the attacks. The US and the United Kingdom have called India's dossier containing proof of LeT and ISI involvement as "credible".

Dismissing the NAB chief's clarification over the allegations, Mr. Sharif said the allegations have proven the bureau's partiality and biased conduct. "David Hadley admitted in his confession to Pakistan's role". 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. But Pakistan continues to claim it is inadmissible in court.
