He said Sharif's statement caused an uproar in Pakistan and India and that the National Security Committee (NSC) meeting was to be called to discuss the issue.

According to a statement released after the meeting, the Committee unanimously decried and rejected the assertion of the former premier as "incorrect and misleading".

He says the writer also claimed that the attack was an eyewash to bamboozle the state narrative and cheat Indian and global audience just to blame Pakistan.

Qureshi said the prime minister honestly tried to resolve issue; however, Nawaz Sharif rejected the NSC declaration.

One of the petitioners stated that a famous book written about the Mumbai attacks titled "The Betrayal of India" by Elias Davidsson, maintains that it is India itself that staged the attacks with an objective to tell the United States and global community that India was a victim of Pakistan.

Mr Sharif, a three-time premier, was said to have asserted that Pakistan had become isolated in the world and wondered if any country is standing with it.

As Sharif faces ire from all quarters in his homeland, his admission may tear down Pakistan's construct of lies and denials regarding the lethal Mumbai attack, revealing a crack in the revisionist state's effort to control the narrative.

"I am sure none of these have read this news", he said, adding one should have thought before levelling accusations and misbehaving.

He further asked, "What have we turned this country into?"

"Surjewala further said: "Our second question to Modi is, will you show the courage of conviction and the 56" chest to ensure that the trial of 26/11 perpetrators, who are neither being adequately tried nor punished in Pakistan, is either held under the guidance of global agencies or they are handed over alternatively to India?" PM Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that the perception is totally wrong that attackers were from Pakistan.

India blamed the Pakistan-based militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) for the 2008 attack on the city of Mumbai. Initial reports in the media can sometimes be inaccurate.
