A press release issued by the country's leading civil-military body said the interview's claims, which appeared in the daily Dawn on May 12, were not borne out by facts.
Meanwhile, the interview has stirred a storm as Indian media has turned his statement into a charge sheet against Pakistan for being involved in the Mumbai attacks.
Sharif's acknowledgement of militant organizations being active in Pakistan is not a new acknowledgement by serving or retired senior Pakistani officials, but it has drawn scrutiny nonetheless. "Call them non-state actors, should we allow them to cross the border and kill 150 people in Mumbai?" said Sharif. "Why can't we complete the trial?" he said.
Sharif, 68, was disqualified by the Supreme Court for not being "honest and righteous" as he failed to declare in 2013 a salary he got from the company of his son in the UAE.
India's position has been that the mastermind of the Mumbai terror attack operated from Pakistan. "Instructions should be given to register a treason case against Nawaz Sharif", the petition states, the report in the Pakistani media said.
Earlier, Pakistan's major opposition parties, including Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan People's Party (PPP), also lambasted Sharif for his "irresponsible" statement and demanded that he retract it. With Pakistan being a nuclear state, it is a cause for worry for the worldwide community if its prime ministers are puppets in the hands of an army that wields power without responsibility.
PTI legislator Khurram Sher Zaman on Monday submitted a resolution in the Sindh Assembly seeking a "ban on the broadcast of Nawaz Sharif's statements and speeches" as these had "given comfort and propaganda points to all enemies of Pakistan".
New Delhi has long held and accused the Lashkar-e-Taiba of carrying out the attacks in Mumbai in 2008 with the help of ten well-armed terrorists.
Stating that the NSC dismissed those words which were misreported, Mr Abbasi said the meeting did not condemn Mr Sharif but incorrect reporting of his interview.
Sharif, asked about his ouster, brought up issues of security and foreign policy - which the military controls. "Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif and I stand behind our Quaid".
Pakistan continues to await cooperation from India regarding the arrest of alleged Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav and the Samjhauta Express attack, the statement said.
He added that this was categorically stated before the world community by the then prime minister Manmohan Singh and the UPA government, which had led to sanctions against Pakistan.
These incidents are also indicative of the politics of the Congress, which rests not on a constructive agenda but a destructive one, even if it comes at the cost of the reputation and integrity of the country.
