FORMER Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has hinted that terrorists from Pakistan were involved in the 2008 terror attacks in Mumbai in which over 160 people had lost their lives.

“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?” Sharif was quoted saying to Pakistan’s Dawn newspaper in an interview.

Sharif also mentioned about Pakistan’s isolation and its diminishing stature in world diplomacy, including on Afghanistan.

“We have isolated ourselves. Despite giving sacrifices, our narrative is not being accepted. Afghanistan’s narrative is being accepted, but ours is not. We must look into it,” Sharif was quoted as saying.

India has accused Pakistan of sponsoring the attacks and Pakistan has always denied any state involvement. The case is being tried in an anti-terrorism court in Pakistan since 2009.
