Defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman today said former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's statement on the 26/11 terror attack in Mumbai vindicated India's stand. Mr Sharif has appeared to admit that the 26/11 attack - which resulted in the deaths of 166 people almost a decade ago - had been carried out by terrorists from Pakistan.

The attack occurred in India, where 90 percent of the proofs were present but India refused to share those with Pakistan, he remarked.

"Militant organisations are active". Nawaz is now ousted from the post of Prime Minister after Pakistan's apex court disqualified him from holding public office on charges of corruption. Mr. Sharif said, referring to the trial in Pakistan of those involved in the 2008 Mumbai attacks. Despite giving sacrifices, our narrative is not being accepted. Explain it to me.

Indian officials say Pakistan did not keep its end of the bargain and sent the case to court without really investigating the conspiracy that led to the attacks.

NO matter what his political opponents or critics say about him, he knows the art of inspiring others through his extraordinary abilities of standing firm and delivering in toughest situations These lines certainly can be attributed to none other than Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif who has emerged as a respected figure and earned praise and admiration not only at home but also overseas.

Kim had revealed plans to shut down the nuclear test site during his summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in last month.

Addressing the media in Karachi, she said the former Prime Minister's statement compromised Pakistan's narrative in the war against terrorism and demanded that he retract his remarks.

"Terrorist organisations are active (in Pakistan)", Sharif told the Dawn newspaper in an interview.

In an interview with the Dawn, Sharif who has been disqualified to hold public office for life by the Supreme Court in the Panama Papers case, criticised the delay in the conclusion of the Mumbai attacks trial. "Why can't we complete the trial". Call them non-state actors, should we allow them to cross the border and kill over 150 people in Mumbai?

Leading opposition leader and cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan said that Sharif was speaking the language of (Indian Prime Minister) Narendra Modi and cooperating against enemies of Pakistan to harm the country.

Some 166 people were killed in the attack carried out by 10 LeT men. Only one of the terrorists, Ajmal Kasab, could be caught alive. The three-time prime minister was earlier disqualified by the apex court for failing to declare his assets while being the Prime Minister.
