However, Abbasi said that the NSC did not condemn Sharif, but incorrect reporting of the interview.

READ | Nawaz Sharif: Militants active in Pakistan, should we allow them to kill in Mumbai? "Explain it to me", he had said, in a clear reference to the Mumbai killings blamed on 10 Pakistani terrorists. "Why can't we complete the trial?" he said.

While India has to put the record straight about the allegations levelled by the Pakistani NSC, it would be prudent to point out suitably, in a measured tone, that the substance of Nawaz Sharif's charge is against the Pakistan army and that the army needs to provide answers both to the Pakistani people and the global community on the larger issue of governance and on sponsoring terrorism.

With Sharif's new stance, it should be clear that there is reason for the Pakistan court to drag its feet on the trial since the high-ups in Islamabad are aware that the non-state actors like Saeed acted with the full knowledge of the ISI and consequently of the Pakistan Government. Just $5 a month.

His comments stirred a controversy, prompting the National Security Committee (NSC) - Pakistan's top civil-military body - to call a high-level meeting. This has to stop. Trivedi said that the startling admission from Pakistan came because Narendra Modi government cornered the neighbouring nation on every aspect. Sharif and his supporters have claimed that his disqualification by the Supreme Court was egged on by the Pakistani military, which maintains great influence in Pakistan. "State of Pakistan [and] all its institutions stand together in the global fight against terrorism".

The Pakistani military has swung into damage control mode following the publication of the Dawn interview. Maj. The meeting will take place on Monday. "We strongly believe that the handlers of the attack were in Pakistan", Sitharaman told a press conference here, in response to a query.

"The PML-N as the country's premier popular national political party and its Quaid need no certificate from anybody on their commitment and capacity to preserve, protect and promote Pakistan's national security", the spokesman said. Babar Awan, a PTI leader, added that Sharif's comments may have even represented an act of high treason. "Pakistan's 220 million people should witness (the trial) and the guilty should be publicly hanged", a defiant Sharif said, unfazed by the barrage of criticism over his remarks.

PML-N president and Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif a day earlier denied that his elder brother had given any such statement, saying the statement was incorrectly attributed to him.

The NSC said it was unfortunate and regrettable that concrete evidence and facts were ignored in the statement. "Sharif said that Pakistan has not permitted its soil to be used for terrorism", the Prime Minister said.
