The meeting reviewed the recent statement in the context of Mumbai attacks, as it appeared in the Daily Dawn of 12th May 2018, and unanimously termed this statement as incorrect and misleading.

Addressing a presser in Lahore, Fawad said that verdict on Nawaz Sharif's corruption allegations is about to announced soon; therefore, the former premier is trying to involve foreign powers to take the spotlight away from the cases. He called the PML-N member "a modern day Mir Jafar" and assailed him for speaking "PM Narendra Modi's language" to protect his wealth stashed in his son's offshore companies.In a tweet Khan said that Nawaz Sharif is the modern-day Mir Jafar, who collaborated with the British to enslave his nation for personal gains. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Abbasi today defended Sharif's remarks in the National Assembly, saying that the former prime minister's comments were "misreported" and "misinterpreted".

Former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, on Saturday, ruffled more than a few feathers when he openly acknowledged that militant organisations operative in Pakistan, crossed the border to "kill" people in Mumbai, in an apparent reference to the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai. "Who introduced terrorism to this handsome country?" he said.

The former Pakistan PM also reaffirmed his demand for the formation of a national commission to separate fact from fiction. "A decision should be made about who is a patriot and who is a traitor..."

India said the gunmen were Pakistani and had arrived on the Mumbai waterfront by rubber boat after crossing the Arabian sea from the Pakistani city of Karachi in a trawler.

He said the premier says the statement was distorted by the Indian media and if this is so, why the important meeting of the top civil-military body had to be convened.

Ten Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militants killed 166 people and wounded dozens in Mumbai in November, 2008.

If the statement was wrongly presented, then why PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif and party leader Chaudhry Nisar had been issuing clarifications, he further asked.

Efforts by Pakistan to put on trial those India says are responsible for the Mumbai attack have stalled, while Saeed operates largely freely in Pakistan.
