India's 'uncooperative' attitude, 'stubbornness' delaying Mumbai attacks trial, says Nisar

Nawaz Sharif Says Pakistani Establishment Delaying 26/11 Trial

A day after ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif tacitly admitted to Pakistan "militants" being behind the 26/11 attacks, the remarks have been lapped up by politicians from both the neighbouring countries to target each other.

"Terrorist organisations are active (in Pakistan)", Sharif told the Dawn newspaper in an interview.

Pakistan's former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan (L) questioned the haste in hanging Ajmal Kasab.

The Maharashtra Anti Terrorist Squad (ATS) earlier this week arrested a 32-year-old man from Juhu locality in Mumbai in connection with planning an attack on the city. Afghanistan's narrative is being accepted, but ours is not. Highlighting the foreign policy vision, Shehbaz Sharif said Pakistan believes in the policy of peace within and peace without and has always joined hands with the world community to achieve peace in the region and the world at large. India's position has been that the mastermind of the Mumbai terror attack operated from Pakistan.

Meanwhile, the Pakistan Army has chose to hold a high-level meeting on Monday to discuss the "recent misleading media statement" about Mumbai terror attack, PTI reported.

First Chinese-built aircraft carrier takes to the waves for trials
The completely home-grown aircraft carrier has departed for sea trials this morning, state-run China Daily said in a brief report. The ship's chief engineering commander, Hu Wenming, told the broadcaster the carrier was smaller than US carriers' Nimitz class.

In his address at a public rally in Sindhri, the Punjab chief minister said that India is conspiring against Pakistan by using Afghan soil.

"Pakistan was heavily criticised over the Mumbai attacks", he shared in a statement while referring to former prime minister Nawaz Sharif's remarks on the Mumbai attacks.

A group of 10 Lashkar-e-Taiba (LET) terrorists from Pakistan carried out coordinated attacks in Mumbai from November 26 to 29 in 2008, which claimed 166 lives and left more than 300 injured. She added that the Indian government has always maintained that Pakistan was the "mastermind" behind the attacks. "Why can't we complete the trial?" In February, the apex court also disqualified Sharif as the head of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N). Sharif had asked in the interview.

The Mumbai case is being tried in an anti-terrorism court since 2009 but the case isn't going anywhere. Lakhvi along with Zarar Shah was allegedly the key planner of the attack.

A number of Pakistani witnesses both official and private testified and provided evidence against the seven accused, but the Pakistani authorities have been insisting on sending Indian witnesses for reaching a verdict in the case.
