Recently, deposed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has given a statement regarding Mumbai attacks in 2008. This controversial statement has triggered a new debate.

In an interview to English daily Dawn that appeared on Saturday, Sharif was asked about the reasons for his ouster. However, instead of replying to the actual query, his reply was:

“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?”

This controversial statement of Nawaz Sharif has triggered anger and disappointment in every Pakistani. Nawaz Sharif’s statement is been given extraordinary coverage across the border. Whereas in Pakistan this statement is being seen as an attempt to put International pressure on Pakistan’s military establishment and that too when the corruption cases on NS and his family are entering a decisive phase.

NS’s statement is being condemned by the Pakistani polticians. PTI Cheif Imran Khan has condemned this statement and he has claimed that:

“Nawaz Sharif has started a war against the army”.

Twitter was also fired up against Nawaz Shairf’s statement,
