Pakistan Behind 26/11 Mumbai Attacks: Nawaz Sharif

Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Sunday said Pakistan's ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif's public acknowledgement that militant organisations were active in his country was a "serious disclosure" and said it proved India's position that the handlers of 26/11 Mumbai terror attack were in Pakistan.

While addressing a presser here in Karachi today, the senior PPP stalwart and leader of opposition in Senate Sherry Rehman stated that Nawaz Sharif's remarks on Mumbai attacks back Modi's stance. Early in April, the Pakistan Supreme Court had disqualified him for life from holding any public office. Sharif asked, referring to the masterminds of the Mumbai massacre that nearly brought India and Pakistan to war.

The ex-interior minister said India manipulated the incident to malign Pakistan.

Mainstream Indian news outlets, since the interview was published on Saturday, have been playing up Sharif's statement on the attacks as a "confession" of Pakistan's role in the Mumbai incident. Stating that the terrorist organisations were thriving in Pakistan, he held them which he called "non-state actors" responsible for the series of coordinated attacks in Mumbai.

In an exclusive interview with Dawn on Friday, Sharif also criticised the apparent delay in the conclusion of the Mumbai attack trial. Explain it to me.

Muthida Majlise Amal Secretary General Liaqat Baloch said Nawaz Sharif's statement was shocking and it supported the narrative of anti-Pakistan forces. "Why can't we complete the trial?"

Mr Sharif, 68, was disqualified by the Supreme Court for not being "honest and righteous" as he failed to declare in 2013 a salary he got from the company of his son in the UAE.

However, despite Sharif's personal opinion, there was not much progress in prosecuting the masterminds behind the 26/11 attacks during his last tenure as PM that was cut short on corruption charges against him, primarily due to lack of cooperation from the all-powerful Pak Army, persons familiar with the process said. The attacks were carried out by 10 LeT men.
