Islamabad, Dec 24: Former Premier of Pakistan and PML-N chief, Nawaz Sharif now takes a U-turn. Sharif who earlier claimed that Azam Amir Kasav is a Pakistani, now says that if India provides enough evidence regarding the involvement of Pakistani groups in Mumbai attacks, he would personally ask President Asif Ali Zardari to take severe action.
If Indian govt does not have strong evidence, then it should not give irresponsible statements. This would lead to further aggravation of tensions between both the countries, Sharif opined. He warned the leaders of both nations to give responsible statements. He called upon to resolve the differences between both the countries through diplomatic dialogues to avoid any future damages.
Earlier, challenging Zardari's assertion that there was no proof that the arrested Mumbai attacker hailed from Pakistan's Punjab province, former premier Nawaz Sharif had said that the suspect's village was cordoned off and his parents were not allowed to meet anyone.
"I have checked myself. Azam Amir Kasav house and village has been cordoned off by the security agencies. His parents are not allowed to meet anybody. I don't understand why it has been done," Sharif told to Geo News channel.
