Explainer: Former Pakistani PM under fire for controversial comments on 26/11

PM Shahid Khaqan Abbasi in the NA

On Mr Sharif's statement on the Mumbai terror attack, Mr Musharraf said that holding the Pakistani establishment and the army responsible was extremely disappointing.

Islamabad, May 15 An unfazed Nawaz Sharif today rejected Pakistan's top civil and military leadership condemning his controversial remarks on the 2008 Mumbai terror attack with the ousted prime minister demanding the formation of a national commission to find out who committed treason.

Nawaz Sharif said: "Militant organisations are active. Indian propaganda can not undermine our achievements", Abbasi said after the NSC meeting, in which Sharif's statement was dismissed as "incorrect and misleading".

The video message was released as a response to Mr Sharif's allegations about the involvement of "non-state actors" in the Mumbai attack. "What did I say in the interview that was wrong", he asked journalists in Islamabad. "Explain it to me", he had said, in a clear reference to the Mumbai killings blamed on 10 Pakistani terrorists.

Earlier in the day, a press statement issued after the NSC meeting said: "The participants 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 said the time has come to decide who is a patriot and who is a traitor. "Who introduced terrorism to this handsome country?" he said. "Sharif said that Pakistan has not permitted its soil to be used for terrorism", the Prime Minister said.

In the other resolutions, PTI lawmaker Arif Abbasi said: "Sharif's statement on Mumbai attack has created problems for Pakistan internationally."It also demanded constitution of a joint investigation team (JIT) to probe his business links with Indian steel tycoon Jindal".

Speaking to newsmen inside the accountability court on Wednesday, the supreme leader of ruling Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz expressed that Imran Khan and Tahirul Qadri were amongst many characters who played their part in the protests. "Despite our 50,000 sacrifices [of lives], why is the world not paying heed to our narrative?"

There have been several reports of divisions among the Sharif brothers, with Nawaz having adopted a hard stance against state institutions following his ouster and Shehbaz calling for restraint and unity.
