Being the end of the week, Saturdays are generally lethargic for most of us. But that was certainly not the case for erstwhile Pak PM, Mr Nawaz Sharif. He seemed not only motivated but also blatantly honest as he reminisced past knowledge. This comes after the world's awareness of the Panama Papers scandal which cost him his PMO. Mr Sharif seems to be turning over a new leaf.
In an interview published in the Dawn newspaper on Saturday, Mr Sharif admitted Pak terrorists were responsible for the fatal 26/11 Mumbai Attacks in 2008, reports NDTV.
He also expressed grave concern at the despairing condition of his nation and the policies with which terrorism is tackled in the land.
"Militant organisations 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. Why can't we complete the trial?" he said, according to the newspaper.
In 2015, NDTV reported his interview with Dunya News, where Mr Musharraf admitted to the government's active role in promoting terrorism in the Kashmir Valley.
"In the 1990s, the freedom struggle began in Kashmir. At that time Lashkar-e-Taiba and 11 or 12 other organisations were formed. We supported them and trained them as they were fighting in Kashmir at the cost of their lives."
The gruesome assault on innocent people, which shook the entire world, left over 150 people dead. Terrorists had simultaneously attacked five different areas of the country's financial capital, and the siege stretched for three continuous days.
The NSG commandos played a pivotal role as they valiantly handled the catastrophic event. With their operation 'Black Tornado', commandos flushed out the terrorists, but not without a cost. Besides the loss of civilian lives and property, decorated officers like Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan and ATS chief Hemant Karkare laid down their lives battling the heinous crime against humanity.
