A day after former Nawaz Sharif admitted his country's role in the 26/11 Mumbai attack, Imran Khan slammed the former Pakistan prime minister for speaking "PM Narendra Modi's language" to protect his wealth stashed in his son's companies.

"Nawaz Sharif is the modern-day Mir Jafar, who collaborated with the British to enslave his nation for personal gains. Nawaz speaking Modi's language against Pakistan State simply to protect his ill-gotten Rs 300 billion stashed in his son's companies abroad,'' Khan tweeted.

(A commander in Siraj- ud -Daulah's army, Mir Jafar colluded with the East India Company leading to the defeat of Siraj- ud -Daulah, the Nawab of Bengal, in the Battle of Plassey in 1757. Following the battle, he became the first Najafi Nawab of Bengal with the support of British East India Company.)

Khan was referring to Sharif's recent interview to a Pakistani media, ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif has admitted to Pakistan's role in the 26/11 terror attacks on Mumbai.

Blaming the Militant organisation in Pakistan, he asked: "should we allow them to cross-border and kill 150 people in Mumbai?".

He further questioned that why the trials in the case are not being completed?

He said,"Militant organisation are active. Call them non-state actors, should we allow them to cross-border and kill 150 people in Mumbai? Why can't we complete trial?"

He added further,"We have isolated ourselves. Despite giving sacrifices, our narrative is not being accepted. Afghanistan's narrative is being accepted, but ours is not. We must look into it".
