    Indias water terrorism

    03/28/2015

    Water issue between India and Pakistan is a serious matter and needs attention of the policy makers, as India is trying to use water as a weapon against Pakistan. Recent developments indicate that India is resorting to devious methods since it has completed some mega projects on River Indus, Jhelum and Chenab. India continues building dams on Pakistans rivers, and its projects are of a size and scope that many Pakistanis fear could be used to disrupt their hydropower efforts, as well as the timing of the flows on which Pakistani crops rely. In this context a comprehensive report published by English daily presents an extremely depressing state of affairs for Pakistan, as India usurps Pakistani share of water. India openly violated Indus Water Treaty showing utter disregard to the rights of Pakistan; however Pakistans water administration failed to pursue the matter diligently with the result that India benefited from UN mediators verdicts.
