(Dunya News) - Punjab Chief Minister (CM) Shehbaz Sharif on Sunday once again adopted complete parallel stance to Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leader Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz while dispelling all assertions, direct or implied, made in news report of DAWN, dated 12-5-18. Call them non-state actors, should we allow them to cross the border and kill 150 people in Mumbai?

Pakistani and Indian media, especially TV channels, are playing up Sharif's interview as a "breach of national interest" or alternately a tacit admission of Pakistan's involvement in the Mumbai carnage.

In an an exclusive interview with Dawn on Friday, Sharif also criticised the apparent delay in the conclusion of the Mumbai attack trial.

Sunday, the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Department said . "She came out. she yelled at the animal", CPW spokesperson Mike Porras. The woman told authorities that Kimberly had gone outside to investigate noises in the yard she may have thought was her dog.

NO matter what his political opponents or critics say about him, he knows the art of inspiring others through his extraordinary abilities of standing firm and delivering in toughest situations These lines certainly can be attributed to none other than Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif who has emerged as a respected figure and earned praise and admiration not only at home but also overseas. Explain it to me. He indicated that his country should look into why its narrative that it had been fighting terrorism had not been accepted by the worldwide community "despite sacrifices". Afghanistan's narrative is being accepted, but ours is not.

Opposition parties, including the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), launched a broadside against Sharif, calling him a security threat. In April this year, the Pakistani Supreme Court barred him from holding any public position for life. "We must look into it", he said before speaking on the Mumbai attack.

Pakistan has so far not completed trial in the 26/11 case.

When Saeed was ordered to be released after 10 months of house arrest in November last, the Pakistan Government had justified the move, saying the law was equal for all. This has to stop. However, the comments by Sharif, the party's leader, will increase tensions in an already fraught relationship between the powerful military which has ruled the nation for much of its 70 years and the civilian government before elections this year. Sharif had travelled to India for the swearing-in ceremony of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and also welcomed the latter in Lahore during a surprise trip in December 2015.

The relations between the military and the Sharif government were at its lowest ebb in October 2016 when the latter told the former to act against home grown militant groups or face global isolation.

The issue, however, had settled down after Pervaiz Rasheed, then-information minister and Sharif's close aide, and some other officials were sacked in May 2017.

In a rare statement criticizing Trump, President Obama makes a convincing argument that this common misperception is incorrect. British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson also made a last-minute dash to Washington but did not get to see the president.

There had also been concerns at the inclusion of two serving military officers in the Joint Investigation Team which probed the allegations against Sharif and his family.
