Former Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif in an interview confessed that Pakistani militants were responsible for the deadly ‘26/11 terror attacks’ on 26 November 2008 in Mumbai.
Sharif, while speaking to Pakistan’s newspaper Dawn, said, “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?”
Sharif’s confession assumes even more significant importance as Pakistan, all throughout, had been denying India’s allegation that 26/11 attacks were carried out by Pakistani militants.
On 26 November 2008, 10 heavily armed Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists entered Mumbai and carried out terror attacks, which lasted until November 29. The terror attacks claimed the lives of almost 150 innocent people.
