  • Pakistan condemns ex-PM Sharif over comment on attack on India

    Whatever the political differences with N$ and apart from his corruption practices, what he said is the truth. But all political parties and bikau chor media labelled him as anti-Pakistan, instead of asking for report from ISI what is the truth. Ajmal Kasab was Pakistani and sent from Pakistan to India via boats. He acted as 'Hollywood Adventurer' and killed score of Indians. When he was hanged, Pakistan even refused to take his dead body.

    Pakistan condemns ex-PM Sharif over comment on attack on India


    By Asif Shahzad

    ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Pakistan's top civil and military leaders on Monday condemned a suggestion by ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif that Islamist militants who killed 166 people in India in 2008 had crossed the border from Pakistan.

    The comments - in which Sharif implied he was removed from office by the Supreme Court last year for trying to end military support for anti-India militants - led to uproar in Pakistan, where criticising the military is increasingly considered a "red line" that cannot be crossed.

    The National Security Council (NSC), in a special meeting on Monday called by the military, rejected Sharif's comments in an interview with Pakistan's Dawn newspaper as "incorrect and misleading", the prime minister's office said in a statement.

    "The participants unanimously rejected the allegations and condemned the fallacious assertions," the office said, referring to military and civilian leaders.

    "(NSC) 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."

    The statement was a rare rebuke of Sharif by a government run by his own party, highlighting political tension in the run-up to a general election expected in July.

    Sharif's criticism of the military has caused divisions within his party, analysts say, with some members unhappy about his confrontational approach.

    Opposition leader Imran Khan demanded that Sharif be put on trial. "He hurt the national interest of Pakistan by violating his oath as an ex-prime minister and should be proceeded against for treason," Khan said at a news conference.

    The Supreme Court disqualified three-time prime minister Sharif from office in July last year over unreported sources of monthly income of less than $3,000 from a United Arab Emirates company, a salary he denied ever receiving.

    The military, which has ruled Pakistan for about half its history, denies any interference in civilian politics.

    India blamed the Pakistan-based militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) for the 2008 attack on the city of Mumbai. Ten gunmen spent three days spraying bullets and throwing grenades around landmarks.

    India said the gunmen were Pakistani and had arrived on the Mumbai waterfront by rubber boat after crossing the Arabian sea from the Pakistani city of Karachi in a trawler.

    India blamed Pakistan for failing to act against those behind the raids. Pakistan admitted the attacks were planned on its soil but denied any official involvement, and did not confirm the gunmen had set sail from Karachi.

    Some Western powers and India have accused the military of supporting Islamist groups for use as tools in achieving foreign policy objectives, but the military denies that.

    'EXPLAIN IT'

    Sharif, in the Dawn interview, obliquely criticized the military by denouncing "parallel governments". He said there should only be one constitutional government.

    The United States also blames LeT for the Mumbai attacks and has offered $10 million for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Hafiz Saeed, who heads Muslim charity Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD), which Washington says is a front for LeT.

    Efforts by Pakistan to put on trial those India says are responsible for the Mumbai attack have stalled, while Saeed operates largely freely in Pakistan.

    Sharif, asked about his ouster, brought up issues of security and foreign policy - which the military controls.

    "Militant organizations are active. Call them non-state actors, should we allow them to cross the border and kill 150 people in Mumbai? Explain it to me. Why can't we complete the trial?," Sharif said, according to Dawn.

    "We have isolated ourselves. Despite giving sacrifices, our narrative is not being accepted," Sharif said.

    Sharif on Monday morning told reporters that he stood by his comments, according to Daily Pakistan and Geo TV. But after the NSC meeting, Prime Minister Abbasi said he had met Sharif and the former leader told him he was "misquoted".

      The only issue is that he is becoming a "liberal" once he was caught doing Trump style or even worse type of corruption.

      Heck, MQM has a better record of being against TTP than PML-n. Why is Rana Sana and other noon stalwarts hanging out with ASWJ in Punjab? It is like if Modi cried about Babri Masjid destruction one day.
      Say no to 'islamofascism'..

        He is playing double game. Where javaid latif got chitrol by TLY protesters, that chowk is named TLY Chowk by javaid latif himself
        and West always wanted puppet like NS and zardari as head of the state.

                  چلیں اب درانی صاحب کی کتاب آ گئ ہے ۔ اب سب خاموش ہو جائیں گے۔ کوئ مطالبہ نہیں کرے گا کہ ان صاحب پر غداری کا مقدمہ چلایا جاے۔
                  btw I read initial few pages . I got info that for sure durrani sahb have good taste of liqueur that even Indians praised it..
                  apart from being a very loving father. Who loved so much his son that he didn't hesitated a single moment calling head of raw to rescue his son once stranded in india.
                  another fact that I already seeing mostly that kids of the top brass are mostly settled outside pk. Don't know why... for a common civilians coz they don't love pk much but hey army generals... no one can beat their love to Pakistan... Still .
                  maybe I cannot get the point...

                        I remember I raised this question few years ago n the answer came that most of the army top brass coming from well off families. I think this also is a pre requisite to be from well off families to be in top brass of army.
