LAHORE - Jamaat ud Daawa (JuD) Chief Hafiz Saeed has cautioned against an alleged plan by India to make Pakistan barren by impeding the flow of water in the rivers feeding Pakistan and urged the government to hold immediate dialogues with India. Saeed made this statement while addressing a meeting of party workers in Sialkot and Sahiwal on Monday during Iftar, he said that the government should hold serious dialogues with India, over this crucial issue which would be devastating for the agro-based economy of Pakistan.
He was of the view that friendship with India would never be successful. The distribution and flow of water from India to Pakistan is governed under the Indus water treaty, however, India has sought to build dams on the rivers on its side of the border, raising concerns for Pakistan, which had previously taken its neighbour to the international court of arbitration. The JuD Chief said that the international community could never ignore sacrifices rendered by the people of Indian administered Jammu and Kashmir for their freedom from India. He said that the sun of Kashmiri freedom will soon rise and the sacrifices of thousands of Kashmiris would bear fruit.
He expressed complete solidarity with the oppressed people of Indian administered Jammu and Kashmir. He also expressed grave concern over the rising human rights violations, custodial killings and genocide of innocent Kashmiris by the Indian Army. He was of the view that these atrocities were enough to spur the international community into action. He also urged the world community to use its influence to globally pressurise India to halt inhuman practices against residents of Kashmir. He spoke about DPCís stance to agitate against the recently restored NATO supply line through Pakistan. Criticising the Pakistan Peopleís Party-led government for reopening the NATO supply routes to Afghanistan, Saeed said that the DPC would continue its protests against the decision.
