Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has admitted that militants thriving in his country were responsible for the 2008 Mumbai attacks in which 160 people were killed.

The Central Executive Committee (CEC) of ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has chose to sue the Chairman National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal for his allegations of money laundering against the former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. "Why can't we complete the trial?" he said in a reference to the Mumbai attacks-related trials, which have stalled in Pakistan.

Nawaz Sharif has also questioned the trial of Pakistani's terrorist Mumbai attack that is hanged in middle.

Sharif also stressed that the country had "isolated" itself in the global community by not acting against terror organisations. This is exactly what we are struggling for.

He said that "We have isolated ourselves".

Ten Lashkar-e-Toiba men hit Mumbai in the so called 9/11 attacks and killed 166 people.

Sharif, who served as the Prime Minister of Pakistan from 2013 till his disqualification in 2017, made the revelation during an interview with leading Pakistani daily Dawn.

"It's absolutely unacceptable (to allow non-state actors to cross the border and commit terrorism there)". Despite giving sacrifices, our narrative is not being accepted. "We must look into it", Sharif said. "President (Vladimir) Putin has said it. President Xi (Jinping) has said it".

In an interview to "The Dawn" before the rally in Multan on Friday, Nawaz said, 'You cannot run a country when two or three parallel ongoing governments.

In April this year, Supreme Court had ruled that Nawaz Sharif is disqualified from holding public office for life under the constitution. There can only be one government: "the constitutional one".
