    According to the Indus Water Treaty the waters of the Western rivers belong to Pakistan and the waters of the Eastern Rivers belong to India–at least in theory. By illegally occupying Kashmir with a forged article of accession (which is ostensibly lost now–and was never shown to either Pakistan or the UN), India now controls all the rivers. Water wars are not part of some sci-fi movie–they are happening now.​

    What can be the permanent solution to this? On one side, India wants friendship while constantly back-stabbing - Fascist hindu mentality. Is Pakistan provoking a next war or India?

    Why are u quoting yahoos like Hamid Gul etc, are they the authority on such issues? Haven't they bought enough grief to Pak .?


    The Baghliar was inspected & found OK by international arbitrators whom Pak approached. The only wanted to lower the height of the dam by 5 ft. Now what r we cribbing about ?

    India like anyone else has a right to protect its interest 1st always & every time. Its for Pak to manage its water. Why is so much water allowed to flow into the sea in Sindh ? Instead of cribbing abt what someone else is doing, if the situations is s " life threatening" not a drop must be allowed to flow into the sea.

    For this u need a Govt that is keen to spend on such issues & not only on the Fauji Foundation & account for the money spent which even the 'all weather friend " & IMF now seeks.

    let me just add this..............

    In Islamic philosophy, the Propthet (PBUH) has been heard mentioning the water near doomsday or the end of the world as being the most sought after commodity adn a precursor for many wars that ultimately will lead to this world's demise.

    So...all this in my humble opinon is bound to happen and as i believe, it is all according to Allah's will. May he have mercy on mankind and allow us to co-exist and not to fight over water, a must have product in order to sustain life.

    Amen.

    Well, if India has her right to protect her interests than so did Pakistan. It is the time for Pakistan to use now some other ways to force the implementation of the Indus water treaty and India to decide in the favour of both countries. Sometimes small conflicts cause gigantic disasters. Pakistan and India should resolve this mater peacefully or else both the countries will face the consequences and not only Pakistan.

    India furnishes data on Chenab water level to Pak officials

    23 Oct 2008, 2205 hrs IST, PTI


    NEW DELHI: Seeking to counter Pakistan's charge that it had blocked the flow of water of Chenab river, India on Thursday furnished data related to water level of the river as senior officials of the two sides met to discuss the issue.

    The Indus Water Commissioners of the two countries met here in the backdrop of Islamabad's allegations that New Delhi had blocked Chenab river water flow to fill the dam for the recently commissioned Baglihar power project in Jammu and Kashmir and claimed that it had affected cultivation in that country.

    Sources said the Indian side furnished "facts and figures" to counter Islamabad's charge.

    India has maintained that water flow was not blocked by it but the level was less because of low availability of water in the river.

    At the two-day talks, the Indian side is led by G Ranganathan and the Pakistan side is headed by its Indus Commissioner Syed Jamaat Ali Shah.

    Ahead of the meeting, sources said Pakistan is expected to seek compensation for the alleged blockade.

    Shah and his delegation visited Baglihar project on Monday for an on-the-spot assessment of the water situation.

    The Pakistani side says there was an understanding between the two countries that the dam would be filled between June 21 and August 21, when monsoon would have been at its peak.

    Dear Cgd,

    Would be curious to know what CONCRETE measures would you recommend if
    you were the President of Pakistan ? Lets face it the Indians will use the water knowingly and unknowingly to covertly blackmail Pakistan. This time the reasons of diverting the water maybe genuine as the reservoir has to be filled for generating electricity but I agree the consequences must have been disastrous for the poor Farmers of Pakistan. GOP is also to blame as their own water management policy is pathetic.

    Regards

    I agree 100 percent with that, metal falcon. it will happen.

    Pakistan should send some PAF to bomb these dams into oblivion. They've got our jugular, so to speak. lets do something before they squeeze it.

    Of course dear India is Giving us a Very good Reason to Fight, Kill and Die for. After Oxygen whats more Important to human life ? Its water dear.

    India Must fully compile by Indus water Treaty or it will be very Bad for International Peace.

    Other wise What Options India is Giving to Pakistan,

    1.Die Thirsty or
    2.TRY, Fight and Die (And If ALLAH helps us we may win)
    3. Raise the Issue in front of Deaf and Blind International agency like UN

    When Indian PM has said that India will stick with treaty then where is Question stopping water.

    India and Pakistan water treaty is one of the best example in the world. There were, are and will be lot of problems and these will be solved under the guidance of treaty.

    So cool down friends................
