Journalist Cyril Almeida said that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s words in the interview regarding 2008 Mumbai attacks were spellbinding and incredible to hear in person.

He tweeted that the interview was addressed directly to him and was on the record.

“Was immediately obvious the course of the election would change,” he stated.

He went on to say that the timing of the interview was pure luck as he was in Multan for a story on south Punjab.

“He clearly wanted to speak and wanted to be heard,” Almeida said. “Happy enough to be there.”

Nawaz Sharif, in his statement to Cyril Almeida, said “Militant organizations 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.”
