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

An accountability court in Islamabad on Tuesday turned down the objections of Sharif family's lawyer Khawaja Haris on recording of statements of the accused in the Avenfield properties case.

Referring to a 2016 meeting in which, according to Dawn, the civilian government had informed the military leadership of Pakistan's growing global isolation, Nawaz said, "Even at that time, the same things? getting our house in order? were being discussed in the NSC meeting".

Sharif had implied in a recent interview that militants in Pakistan had crossed the border into India to carry out the attacks that killed over 150 people. "Who introduced terrorism to this attractive country?" he said. Following the NSC meet, Abbasi told reporters that Sharif had said that his remarks on Mumbai attacks had been misreported by the media, a claim that contradicted Sharif 's statement on Monday.

He further said Nawaz speaking Modi's language against Pakistan state simply to protect his ill-gotten Rs 300 billion stashed in his sons companies abroad.Mir Jafar was the commander in Siraj- ud -Daulah's army and he colluded with the East India Company to defeat the Nawab of Bengal in the Battle of Plassey in 1757.

Sharif also said he had raised the issue of terrorism resulting in Pakistan's isolation during an NSC meeting that led to "Dawn Leaks" after the matter was reported by the newspaper. Pakistan is not getting isolated, it is already isolated. He was responding to being termed a traitor by political opponents.

Elaborating on the war and its happenings, he said that Pakistan was in a dominating position in five different fronts in the war, and that the then-prime minister was briefed on the situation at least two times.

Responding to a question pertaining to PTI's rejection of Nawaz's suggestion of forming a national commission to probe into treason allegations against him, the former premier said, "PTI neither has character nor ideology".

He added: "Whatever was said during that interview and whatever was written by the reporter was misinterpreted by the Indian media in order to serve India's own purposes".

Abbasi that it was the official policy that Pakistan would not allow any militant group to use its soil for militancy.

PML-N leader Nehal Hashmi also arrived at the accountability court to express solidarity with the party's supreme leader.

The Lashker-e-Taiba militant group, founded by US -wanted militant Hafiz Saeed, was blamed for the Mumbai massacre. Kasab was executed after a court found him guilty and handed down the death sentence.
