Nawaz Sharif admits role of Pakistan in 26/11 Mumbai Attack, Calls terrorist Non-State actors


Nawaz Sharif ex-prime minister of Pakistan has admitted the role of Pakistani terrorists in Mumbai attacks and called them Non-state actors of Pakistan.

He stated that “Militant organizations are active in the country and questioned the policy to allow the “non-state actors” to cross the border and “kill” people in Mumbai, a media report said.

He also added, “we have isolated ourselves” in this act of cross-border terrorism. He also added “Despite sacrifices our narrative is not being accepted. Afghanistan’s narrative is being accepted, but ours is not. We must look into our policies”

Russian President and Chinese President Xi Jinping have also objected their acceptablity to allow non-state actors for cross-border terrorism, added Nawaz Sharif.

US President Donald Trump had also accused Pakistan of giving nothing to the US but “lies and deceit” and providing “safe haven” to terrorists.

He has raised question over Non-state actors responsible for Pakistan’s isolation? Nawaz Sharif has raised concern over getting isolated and admitted the role of non-state actors for cross-border 26/11 terrorist act in Mumbai. He said

Sharif, who has been disqualified to hold public office for life by the Supreme Court in the Panama Papers case, said Pakistan has isolated itself.

He has publicly admitted that terrorist organizations are active in Pakistan and without naming Mumbai attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed and Maulana Masood Azhar’s militant organizations — Jamaat-ud-Dawah and Jaish-e-Mohammad, — questioned “Call them non-state actors, should we allow them to cross the border and kill over 150 people in Mumbai? Explain it to me. Why can’t we complete the trial.”

The relations between Sharif government and military were at its worst stage since October 2016 when the Sharif government told the military to act against home grown militant groups or face international isolation.

It has been 10 years of 26/11 act since then the Mumbai attacks-related trials are stalled in a Rawalpindi anti-terrorism court against the seven accused terrorist. A number of witnesses both official and private have provided evidence but Pakistan does not seem to be in a mood to accept its own fault.
