Former Premier Nawaz Sharif today turned down the statement released by National Security Committee (NSC) yesterday in the aftermath of his controversial remarks about the 2008 Mumbai attacks.

Nawaz Sharif said this while speaking to journalists outside accountability court today. He maintained that NSC’s declaration was not based upon facts and the related situation.

“The people should know who inflicted the country to this point,” he stressed.

He said, “What's wrong with my statement?”

“I had asked why did militants attack 150 people and I want the answer,” he clarified.

He further questioned why Mumbai trial wasn't completed while adding that he always spoke the truth and stood by it. 

The participants of NSC meeting termed the PML-N supremo's remarks as contrary to the facts and said that Indian government didn’t present evidence for investigation.

The NSC meeting had categorically rejected the statement of Nawaz Sharif

They 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.
