In an interview last week, the three-time premier had questioned Pakistan's policy to allow the "non-state actors" to cross the border and "kill" people in Mumbai as he publicly acknowledged that militant groups are active in the country.

His comments triggered a major controversy, inviting criticism from all quarters. The National Security Committee, Pakistan's top civil-military body, condemned the "fallacious" statement by Sharif about the Mumbai terror attack and termed it as "incorrect and misleading".
