NSC to discuss Nawaz statement regarding Bombay attacks on Monday

Islamabad (Staff Report): The National Security Committee (NSC) will be held on Monday to discuss former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s recent remarks on Mumbai attacks.


“NSC meeting suggested to Prime Minister to discuss recent misleading media statement regarding Bombay incident. Being held tomorrow morning,” said Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) DG Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor in a tweet.

Nawaz, in a recent interview to Dawn newspaper, had said, “Militant organisations 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?”

His remarks were played up by the Indian media as an admission of Pakistan's involvement in the terrorist attacks.
