Nawaz, in a recent interview to Dawn newspaper, had said, "Militant organisations are active".
Defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman today said former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's statement on the 26/11 terror attack in Mumbai vindicated India's stand. Mr Sharif has appeared to admit that the 26/11 attack - which resulted in the deaths of 166 people almost a decade ago - had been carried out by terrorists from Pakistan. "Why can't we complete the trial?" - a reference to the Mumbai attacks-related trials which have stalled in a Rawalpindi anti-terrorism court.
The comments, which not only backed Indian position but also expressed Nawaz Sharif's dissatisfaction with country's judicial system, were seen by many in the backdrop the troubles he is facing at the hands of the top judiciary.

Dame Tessa Jowell: New Labour minister who became London 2012 political champion
British Olympic Association Chairman Sir Hugh Robertson pays tribute to Dame Tessa Jowell after she sadly passed away yesterday. He said: "Tessa was a positive life force who never stopped smiling and never stopped being dedicated to other people".
Mainstream Indian news outlets, since the interview was published on Saturday, have been playing up Sharif's statement on the attacks as a "confession" of Pakistan's role in the Mumbai incident.
Nisar, in a statement issued on Sunday on "Nawaz's statements and the Indian media's reaction", emphasised that the Indian government was to blame for the hold-up in the Mumbai attacks trial. He said he was shocked to read the PML-N supremo interview. In 2017, former Pakistan national security advisor Muhammad Ali Durrani had also admitted that the attacks at several places in Mumbai were carried out by a terrorist group based out of Pakistan.
Disclosing that a parliament committee on Indo-Pakistan relationship, in which Tharoor is the chairman, said that there have made several breakthrough recommendations and suggestions for the government to adopt for countering the terror menace from across the border. It was not Islamabad but New Delhi which tactfully tried to delay the trial of Mumbai attack incident in Pakistani court and failed to provide any solid proof about it, he added.
Durrani said Indian forces in occupied Kashmir were injuring eyes, faces and bodies of innocent civilians by using of pellet guns.
Nawaz Sharif, however, is not the first person to puncture the Pakistani lie. A leaked USA embassy cable recalls that during a meeting between visiting Senator John McCain and Sharif in December 2008, he had acknowledged role of Pak nationals in 26/11.
