Sharif said it was unacceptable that militant organisations were active in Pakistan and that the country had isolated itself internationally. Nawaz Sharif said, 'We have separated ourselves from ourselves. Despite giving sacrifices, our narrative is not being accepted. The story of Afghanistan was accepted, but not ours. "We must look into it", Sharif told Dawn.
"Militant organizations are active".
In an interview to Pakistan's Dawn Newspaper, Mr. Sharif questioned the policy of allowing the non-state actors to cross the border and kill people in Mumbai. Explain it to me.
The Mumbai case is being tried in an anti-terrorism court since 2009 but the case isn't going anywhere.
He also blamed the government, saying that the country can't run on three parallel government, and that it should be one body to govern the people of the country. This is a rare admission from a top Pakistan political leader, nearly 10 years after the terrorist attacks in Mumbai in November 2008. Nine of the attackers were killed by police while lone survivor Ajmal Kasab was caught and hanged after being handed down death sentence. "President (Vladimir) Putin has said it. President Xi (Jinping) has said it".
The petition was filed by ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Noor Aawan. There can only be one government: "the constitutional one", he said.
Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, Abdul Wajid, Mazhar Iqbal, Hamad Amin Sadiq, Shahid Jamil Riaz, Jamil Ahmed and Younis Anjum - are facing charges of abetment to murder, attempted murder, planning and executing the Mumbai attack since 2009. However, Pakistan has repeatedly asked for 24 Indian witnesses to be presented in court to help finish the trial.
