The recent uproar by the ANP in National Assembly on raising of the Kalabagh dam issue by the PML-N and PML-Q members showed the mindless stubbornness of those opposing this dam without any reason. The proposed site of this dam is one of the best in the world and its excellent feasibility has been examined repeatedly by the Chinese and German experts. The World Bank has agreed to finance it which should also tell you something. In response to my letter to the Chairman World Bank, he wrote back very positively about how this dam would add substantially to our storage of irrigation water and cheap power. But the illiterate detractors of this dam deny beauty of the project so outrageously that one is reminded of the verse of Quran about Kazzaba bil Husna that refers to rejection of the beauty of gospel truth of Islam by the infidels. The detractors of the dam must understand that the Water Accord of 1991 simply cannot be implemented in the absence of Kalabagh dam. The 37% assured share of water to Sindh and 14% assured share of water to Pakhtoonkhwah can only be had through this dam. Not building it would amount to what has been described as Kufran-e-Naimat. -DR M. YAQOOB BHATTI, Lahore, June 16.
