Former Pakistan PM risks Jail over Mumbai attacks claim

Abbasi said he was confident that the parliamentarians making fiery speeches against Nawaz Sharif had not even read the interview and were only making the fuss out of nothing.

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi regretted that the loyalty of a person who made this country an impregnable nuclear State was being questioned and added that "no one has the right to issue a certificate of patriotism".

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.

According to a statement released after the meeting, the Committee unanimously decried and rejected the assertion of the former premier as "incorrect and misleading".

PM Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that the perception is totally wrong that attackers were from Pakistan. "Will speak the truth no matter what the consequences are", he said.
