Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah defended the PML-N Quaid by saying that Nawaz Sharif had revealed nothing new in his recent interview.
“Pakistan as a state was not involved in Mumbai attacks,” Rana Sanaullah said, clarifying Sharif’s statement on SAMAA’s talk show Awaaz.
“Nawaz Sharif said non-state actors were behind the Mumbai attacks, which meant the state was not involved.”
Security Analyst Lt Gen (retd) Amjad Shoaib said Nawaz Sharif’s statement was uncalled for and portrayed a negative image of Pakistan across the world.
“Nobody should be declared a traitor,” Shoaib said. “I personally believe this is not treason, only an irresponsible statement.”
“Ajmal Kasab was arrested in Nepal before the Mumbai attacks,” said Shoaib, quoting a German scholar’s book.
He said Kulbhushan Jadhav was involved in terror activities in Pakistan and Indian PM Narendra Modi proudly claimed that he is the son of the soil.
