Nawaz Sharif rejected statement issued by NSC

The petition alleged Sharif of maligning Pakistan and its national security departments

Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif dodged a question today regarding the support of his brother, Shehbaz Sharif.

The petition, filed by political party Pakistan Awaami Tehreek's (PAT) Khurram Nawaz Gandapur, stated that Sharif's statement was against national security and state institutions.

In a video message, he said that he briefed former premier Sharif two times on Kargil and Sharif had said: "we should hoist Pakistan's flag in Srinagar".

The Mumbai terror attack is the worst kept secret in Pakistan as everybody knows that it was carried out by terror groups nurtured on their soil and the entire operation was directed by non-state actors. Explain it to me. "Why can't we complete the trial?".

His comments triggered a controversy, prompting the National Security Committee (NSC) - Pakistan's top civil-military body - to call a high-level meeting.

Sharif also said he had raised the issue of terrorism resulting in Pakistan's isolation during an NSC meeting that led to "Dawn Leaks" after the matter was reported by the newspaper.

However Sharif defended his defended his remarks asking, "What did I say that was wrong in the interview?"

"Whatever was said during that interview and whatever was written by the reporter was misinterpreted by the Indian media in order to serve India's own purposes", he claimed.

He said further that he is not just a Pakistani citizen as the people elected him prime minister and he knows a lot of things.

Addressing the media outside the accountability court conducting corruption proceedings against him and his family, Nawaz said, "Many characters played a part in 2014 sit-ins". PML-N leader Nehal Hashmi also arrived at the accountability court to express solidarity with the party's supreme leader. At least 166 Indians and foreigners were killed in the bloodbath. One of them, Ajmal Kasab, was caught and hanged.

Former premier Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz appeared before the accountability court in Islamabad, that is hearing the case, after concluding the Avenfield reference.

"The participants unanimously rejected the allegations and condemned the fallacious assertions", the office said, referring to military and civilian leaders.

The council meeting was attended by all services chiefs and the Defence Minister.
