"To try and protect his wrongdoings, he is not only willing to destroy all Pak State institutions, including army, NAB, SC, but also the future of our country", said the former cricketer.Sharif admission is a rare from a top Pakistani leader, in an interview to Dawn, he said that militant organisations were active in the country and questioned Islamabad's policy to allow "non-state actors" to cross the border and "kill" people in Mumbai.

"I reject NSC's May 14 statement as it is based on misperception".

Nawaz said this while speaking to journalists outside accountability court.

"The participants [of the NSC] observed that it was very unfortunate that the opinion arising out of either misconceptions or grievances was being presented in disregard of concrete facts and realities", a statement issued by the PM Office had said.

Qureshi further said, "Nawaz's statement is condemnable". "Who introduced terrorism to this handsome country?"

Shortly after Nawaz's talk with the reporters, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi in the National Assembly defended the ousted premier's remarks on the Mumbai attacks ─ the second time in two days ─ reiterating the handout issued by NSC, saying that the PML-N quaid's comments were "misreported" and "misinterpreted". These media reports were incorrect.

Weighing the ongoing wave of discussions on the Mumbai attacks, former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said India used the Mumbai attacks for its own "despicable" plans.

Branding Nawaz Sharif's remark as an "irresponsible", senators demanded that he apologise to the nation and retract his statement, Dawn reported.

He added that Nawaz had not said anything that had not been said before.

Abbasi said that he will not resign and complete the term. "We must look into it", he added. He claimed that the government would follow through "even if it had a second left [in the completion of its term]".
