While talking to news men in provincial capital, Lahore Saturday, Pervaiz Ashraf said that Nawaz Sharif’s remarks on 2008 Mumbai attacks are not befitting of a former premier.

Former premier added that Nawaz’s remarks hurt the sentiments of the Pakistani nation and the remarks are totally anti-Pakistan and therefore he should withdraw it.

During the interview with Dawn newspaper, Nawaz had said, “Militant organizations 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?”
