  • Sharif's statement about Mumbai attack was 'misreported': Pak PM

Stating that the NSC dismissed those words which were misreported, Abbasi said the meeting did not condemn Sharif but incorrect reporting of his interview.

The Mumbai terror attack is the worst kept secret in Pakistan as everybody knows that it was carried out by terror groups nurtured on their soil and the entire operation was directed by non-state actors.

Soon after the SBP's clarification, NAB issued a brief statement and questioned: "If the World Bank report is not correct, why they have not changed the figure of 4.9 billion dollars from Pakistan in its report?"

Militants from Pakistan sneaked into India to attack Mumbai in 2008 and massacred 166 Indians and foreigners, former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said in an interview published on Saturday.

Abbasi said there was no tension between the civil and military. "Why can't we complete the trial?" The political turmoil over Sharif's candid admission will further isolate Pakistan internationally over terrorism issue.

The prime minister while addressing in the NA asked the house to constitute a committee in this regard.

He stresses "After all, it was Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif who, resisting all pressures, took the most important and most hard decision on national security in Pakistan's history by making the country a nuclear power in May 1998".

Against the backdrop of allegations by the opposition that he had gone against the country's interests, Sharif demanded the formation of a national commission to decide who had committed treason. He said Pervaiz Musharraf, Rehman Malik and others had also given such statements in the past.

The National Assembly's Standing Committee on Law and Justice on Tuesday asked National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Chairman Javed Iqbal to appear before it and explain why he ordered an inquiry into spurious allegations against Nawaz and Shahbaz Sharif concerning money laundering to India.

They observed that it was very unfortunate that the opinion arising out of either misconceptions or grievances was being presented in disregard of concrete facts and realities. He called the PML-N member "a modern day Mir Jafar" and assailed him for speaking "PM Narendra Modi's language" to protect his wealth stashed in his son's offshore companies.In a tweet Khan said that Nawaz Sharif is the modern-day Mir Jafar, who collaborated with the British to enslave his nation for personal gains.
