Impose treason case on Sharif, demand Pakistan assemblies

  • Parliament can constitute commission if so desired

Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said on Monday that former premier Nawaz Sharif clarified to him that his statement about the Mumbai attack was "misreported".

On Sunday, the military called an emergency meeting of the National Security Council which reviewed Mr. Sharif's remarks, and said in a statement that "it was very unfortunate that the opinion arising out of either misconceptions or grievances, was presented in disregard of concrete facts and realities".

Elaborating on the war and its happenings, he said that Pakistan was in a dominating position in five different fronts in the war, and that the then-prime minister was briefed on the situation at least two times. "Indian propaganda can not undermine our achievements", Abbasi said after the NSC meeting, in which Sharif's statement was dismissed as "incorrect and misleading".

Responding to a question pertaining to PTI's rejection of Nawaz's suggestion of forming a national commission to probe into treason allegations against him, the former premier said, "PTI neither has character nor ideology".

The United States also blames LeT for the Mumbai attacks and has offered $10 million for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Hafiz Saeed, who heads Muslim charity Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD), which Washington says is a front for LeT. "Are those who tore apart the country and the Constitution patriots?" Why can't we complete the trial."I mean raised question on the timing of the revelation, and said Sharif was in power for four years and did not speak out a word about the Mumbai attacks".

Abbasi said there was no tension between the civil and military.

However, the PML-N supreme leader, defended his controversial remarks and said he didn't say anything wrong.

Abbasi that it was the official policy that Pakistan would not allow any militant group to use its soil for militancy.

Sharif's statement has left the Pakistan Army extremely anxious that "this will give more weight to India's narrative that Pakistan is not doing enough" with respect to the 26/11 trial, and could even put Pakistan on the blacklist of global financial trade agreements.

As Sharif faces ire from all quarters in his homeland, his admission may tear down Pakistan's construct of lies and denials regarding the lethal Mumbai attack, revealing a crack in the revisionist state's effort to control the narrative.
