Nawaz Sharif remarks extremely irresponsible: Rehman Malik

"Why can't we complete the trial".

On November 26, 2008, 10 Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorists had sailed into Mumbai from Karachi and carried out coordinated attacks in different parts of the city, killing about 166 people and injuring over 600 others.

He was talking to media persons inside the accountability court and said that those who dare to ask questions termed as traitors.

The disgruntled PML-N member said, "There was no bigger evidence of the Indian government's lack of interest in taking the case to its end than its refusal to allow FIA to question the only living proof of the attacks: Ajmal Kasab". In a recent setback to the trial was last month, the Pakistan interior ministry removed the chief prosecutor for "not taking the government line". "This should be answered".

When a reporter pointed to Sharifs acknowledgment of the presence of "non-state actors" in the country, his daughter Maryam, who was accompanying him, replied: "So then who was Zarb-i-Azb [military operation] conducted against?"

The PML-N and its leaders have, since Saturday, been scrambling to explain what the statement actually meant, while Nawaz has since read out the excerpts from the interview asking whether he has said anything wrong.

"Are the violators of the Constitution patriotic? Are those who pulled out judges from their offices patriots?"

Chairman Imran Khan on Sunday took an exception to ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif's remarks about Mumbai attacks which he made in an interview with a leading English daily. He said the PML-N "rejects all assertions, direct or implied, made in the news report of Dawn". "The National Security Committee resolved that Pakistan shall continue to play its due role in fighting the war against terrorism at all fronts", it added.

Terrorist Hafiz Saeed is roaming freely in Pakistan and is even giving political speeches. "Pakistan's national interests can and will never be compromised!" Former High Commissioner to Pakistan and seasoned diplomat G Parthasarathy told ET "Neither the Pak Army nor the ISI is keen to bring the perpetrators to justice despite earlier efforts by Sharif to improve ties with India".

"Unfortunately, a section of Pakistani electronic and social media has intentionally or unintentionally not only validated but has lent credence to the malicious propaganda of Indian media without going through the full facts of the statement", it added.
