NSC unanimously termed Nawaz Sharif statement as incorrect and misleading

Nawaz Sharif has come under fire for recent comments

The press conference was held shortly after the conclusion of a National Security Council (NSC) session, which was convened to discuss "recent misleading media statement" regarding the Mumbai attacks.

Criticising PM Abbasi's comments on former premier Nawaz's statements on 2008 Mumbai attacks, the PTI spokesman said, "PM Abbasi, instead of supporting the state, is proving himself to be a Nawaz loyalist".

Sharif's remarks have sparked a debate in Pakistan with his opponents criticising him for toeing the Indian line while many praised him on social media for having the courage to speak the truth.

Earlier, the NSC meeting had categorically rejected the statement of Nawaz Sharif.

India said the gunmen were Pakistani and had arrived on the Mumbai waterfront by rubber boat after crossing the Arabian sea from the Pakistani city of Karachi in a trawler. He called the PML-N member "a modern day Mir Jafar" and assailed him for speaking "PM Narendra Modi's language" to protect his wealth stashed in his son's offshore companies.In a tweet Khan said that Nawaz Sharif is the modern-day Mir Jafar, who collaborated with the British to enslave his nation for personal gains. Pakistan admitted the attacks were planned on its soil but denied any official involvement, and did not confirm the gunmen had set sail from Karachi. The participants observed that it was very unfortunate that the opinion arising out of either misconceptions or grievances was being presented in disregard of concrete facts and realities. "I have clarified those", he added.

Jared Kushner to name for unity at Jerusalem embassy dedication
Kurtz said the violence was "clearly" precipitated by Hamas, but media outlets make it look like Israel was responsible. "Fifty-two people die in protest over moving American Embassy to Jerusalem ".

Although Nawaz has stuck to his guns, asking: "What did I say that was wrong in the interview?", his younger brother Shahbaz, who is also the chief minister of Punjab, issued a statement on Sunday, saying that the news report had "incorrectly attributed certain remarks to PML-N Quaid Nawaz Sharif, which do not represent PML-N's party policy".

The prime minister said a person who made the Country an atomic power was being labeled as a traitor.

Ten Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militants killed 166 people and wounded dozens in Mumbai in November, 2008.

In the midst of mounting support in favour of a trial for treason, Sharif continues to defend his comments, backed by Pakistan's current PM Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, who claimed Sharif's comments have been "misreported" and pledged full support to Sharif and their party.

He blamed India for refusing to cooperate during the investigation of the case.
