The Meeting was regarding the statement of Nawaz Sharif which states Pakistan's involvement in Mumbai terror attacks.

The NSC did not condemn Nawaz, but incorrect reporting of the interview, the PM clarified, referring to the earlier jointed statement by the country's top civil-military body. However, a close reading of his remarks shows that they constituted a full-frontal attack on the Pakistan army. "Why can't we complete the trial".

Jamaat-ud Dawa, the socio-political front of Mumbai attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed, was declared as a foreign terrorist organisation by the United States in June 2014.

Along with his daughter and other family members, Sharif, whose party came to power through a landslide victory in 2013, is already facing three corruption allegations, which, he claims, are "cooked up" and aimed at ousting him and his party from politics. "President Putin has said it. President Xi has said it,".

In an exclusive interview to Dawn published on Saturday, Sharif had said: "Militant organisations are active". Sharif had asked in the interview.

Reacting to Sharif's remarks, Nisar, under whose watch the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) was investigating the Mumbai attacks, said the Indian government was to blame for the hold-up in the Mumbai attacks trial, the Dawn reported.

The former prime minister wondered why there was no accountability of generals who overthrew democratically-elected governments and undermined the constitution of the country while politicians who worked for Pakistan and its people were labelled as traitors.

Mr Sharif had publicly acknowledged in an interview that militant organisations are active in Pakistan and questioned the policy to allow the "non-state actors" to cross the border and "kill" people in Mumbai. "Questions are being raised about Pakistan at the global level owing to Sharif's statement", she told reporters. He indicated that his country should look into why its narrative that it had been fighting terrorism had not been accepted by the worldwide community "despite sacrifices".

The committee, which includes the country's top military and civilian leadership, met in the capital Islamabad on Monday, and termed Sharif's comments "incorrect and misleading". The Minister said it proved India's position that the handlers of 26/11 Mumbai terror attack were in Pakistan.

Nawaz said that we have separated ourselves. The story of Afghanistan was accepted, but not ours.

"Will Prime Minister Modi show the courage of conviction and the 56-inch chest to ensure that action is taken against the perpetrators of 26/11, who are neither being adequately tried nor punished in Pakistan?"

However, groups such as Lashkar-e-Taiba, which is banned as a "terrorist organisation" under Pakistani law, continue to fundraise and carry out political and humanitarian aid activities across the country.
