Qureshi lashes out at Nawaz Sharif over controversial Mumbai attack statement

Qureshi lashes out at Nawaz Sharif over controversial Mumbai attack statement

PM Abbasi, on the floor of the house on Tuesday, said: "Whatever was said during that interview and whatever was written by the reporter was misinterpreted by the Indian media in order to serve India's own purposes". Explain it to me.

Following the NSC statement, Abbasi had clarified at a press conference that Nawaz's remarks were misquoted in the media.

One official said: They (India) have indicated they might do that (move the ICJ on Sharifs statement).

Imran Khan, chairperson of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf attacked Nawaz Sharif a day after ousted prime minister tacitly admitted to Pakistan "militants" being behind the 26/11 Mumbai attacks.

"Nawaz is responsible for bringing the country to the stage where it is at", Chaudhry said while speaking to Geo News. Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Haidri also tabled an investigation to figure out as to why the former PM had resorted to make such a statement. "Will speak the truth no matter what the consequences are", he said.

Following the prime minister's comments, the opposition parties staged a walkout in protest. These media reports were incorrect.

"Militant organisations are active".

He added that Nawaz had not said anything that had not been said before. He further said Nawaz speaking Modi's language against Pakistan state simply to protect his ill-gotten Rs 300 billion stashed in his sons companies abroad.Mir Jafar was the commander in Siraj- ud -Daulah's army and he colluded with the East India Company to defeat the Nawab of Bengal in the Battle of Plassey in 1757. "This policy was followed when Nawaz Sharif was prime minister, when the PPP was in power, and when Musharraf was president", he asserted.

Sharif's comments have stirred a controversy in Pakistan, prompting the National Security Committee to call a high-level meeting to reject the statement. The current government's term ends on May 31.

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.
