Islamabad (May 13, 2018): Former Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has said that Indian government used Mumbai attacks to malign Pakistan.
“India used the Mumbai attacks for its own despicable plans,” said Nisar and added, “Pakistan was heavily criticized over the Mumbai attacks.” He remarked that he is completely aware of all aspects of the case as he served as the country’s interior minister.Nisar also blamed India for showing aggression and refusing to cooperate during the investigation into the case. “The lack of cooperation by India was the biggest hurdle in the investigation. India wasn’t interested in a transparent investigation,” he said.
The attack occurred in India, where 90 percent of the proofs were present but India refused to share those with Pakistan, Nisar remarked.
“We kept on requesting India to cooperate in the case. We have always cooperated with India over information sharing pertaining to all incidents of terrorism,” Nisar added.“India always shows aggression when it comes to incidents such as that of Kulbushan Jadhav,” he said, referring to the Indian spy facing a death sentence in Pakistan.
Nisar further said that India wasn’t even willing to cooperate with the investigation committee formed by the Pakistani courts. “The committee wasn’t even allowed to travel to India at first.”
With regards to Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab, who India claims to be the sole attacker of the incident to be captured alive, Nisar said he was the sole eyewitness of the attacks. “The Pakistani investigation team wasn’t allowed to ask questions from Ajmal.”
India announced his death sentence and ‘removed’ him, Nisar said, alleging that the death sentence process was hurried so that the facts are never brought before the world.
