Meanwhile, Pakistan People's Party (PPP) leader Senator Sherry Rehman said that Sharif has endorsed the anti-Pakistan narrative of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi due to his controversial statement about the Mumbai terror attacks.

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif should immediately step down following the statement of Nawaz Sharif, PTI chairman demanded, adding that PM should clarify Nawaz Sharif's statement in the National Assembly.

Islamabad, May 14 Pakistan's top civil and military leadership today condemned the "fallacious" statement by ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif about the Mumbai terror attack and termed it as "incorrect and misleading". However, a close reading of his remarks shows that they constituted a full-frontal attack on the Pakistan army.

"Why can't we complete the trial?"

Black American bishop will give the address at royal wedding
The first African-American bishop in the American Episcopal Church will give an address at the royal wedding in Windsor next week. He called Curry a "brilliant pastor, stunning preacher and someone with a great gift for sharing the good news of Jesus Christ".

The Pakistan-based terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba which is headed by United Nations designated global terrorist Hafiz Saeed was blamed for the Mumbai bloodbath.

Political analyst Qamar Cheema told Arab News: "There is deep divide between the establishment and Nawaz Sharif and to damage the establishment Nawaz tried to give an impression that non-state actors are still being used by the Pakistani establishment as state policy". "President Putin has said it. President Xi has said it,".

Expressing support for Nawaz, Abbasi said the entire party, including Shehbaz Sharif, stands with the PML-N supremo. "What did I say that was wrong in the interview?"

The comments - in which Sharif implied he was removed from office by the Supreme Court previous year for trying to end military support for anti-India militants - led to uproar in Pakistan, where criticising the military is increasingly considered a "red line" that can not be crossed. "We must look into it", he added.

It became known as "fakes" found in Facebook
On Tuesday, May 15, Guy Rosen, Facebook's Vice President of Product Management, posted a blog post on the company's newsroom. Nearly 86 percent was found by the firm's technology before it was reported by users.

Immediately after the meeting Pak premier, ShahidKhaqanAbbasi met his mentor, Nawaz Sharif, who earlier in the day during a chat with reporters read excerpts from his interview to Dawn and dispelled the notion that the comments were falsely attributed to him.

Sharif, who has been disqualified to hold public office for life by his country's Supreme Court in the Panama Papers case, said, "We have isolated ourselves". Nawaz noted in an interview to Pakistan's Dawn newspaper in a reference to the Mumbai attacks-related trials which have stalled in a Rawalpindi anti-terrorism court. Afghanistan's narrative is being accepted, but ours is not.

Pakistan has always been accused of playing a "double game" by supporting militant groups for its own strategic ends, particularly in India-controlled Kashmir and Afghanistan. The Indian Army will have to make sure that India is a safe country.

Fawad Chaudhry, secretary of information for PTI, said that Sharif was trying to appease the global establishment through his "anti-Pakistan" statements.
