India plans to build about 135 dams on the three western rivers of Indus, Jhelum and Chenab. These dams are meant specifically to harm the agricultural economy of Pakistan. A drought like situation was created in 2000 when hundreds of people died, more than half a million people moved to other areas and thousands of birds and animals perished due to the shortage of water. Indeed, India was responsible for this disaster. A few years ago, we were producing sufficient crops for our necessities but now we are facing shortages. The situation might become critical like Somalia by 2015 if the scarcity of water persists. In this context, the Indus Waters Commissioner of Pakistan has prepared a summary on the Baglihar Dam, Kishen Ganga project and other projects and have forwarded it to Parliament. India wants to abolish the Indus Waters Treaty 1960, and to fulfil its cruel desires a track two policy is being pursued by its agents, also located in different provinces of Pakistan. Our scholars, civil society, and print and electronic media must act to frustrate these designs before the prediction that future wars will be fought over water comes true in our region. Radcliffes conspiracy to give water heads to India was followed by an odious plan to barren Pakistans beautiful green fields. In 1960, the Indus Waters Treaty was signed to settle water distribution dispute between Pakistan and India. The waters of three eastern rivers, Sutlej, Beas and Ravi, went to India, and three western rivers, Indus, Jhelum and Chenab to Pakistan. Yet, Indian nefarious plan to barren Pakistans green valleys continued. Although India could construct only small projects for some hydraulic plants, and for some other domestic and agricultural uses for occupied Kashmir, it built several dams on the three western Pakistani rivers. Under the mega plan, more dams are planned at virtually every rivers and rivulet taking off from these rivers to control Pakistans waters and put it under pressure. But our incumbent rulers and government officials have failed to counter the situation. As a result, India is moving to complete 135 dams, 24 dams are being built on Indus, 77 on Jhelum and 34 on Chenab. Under the pretence of dialogues, India is going to complete long-term projects. On the other hand, Pakistans plans to build dams are criticised by India. We as a nation should address the situation on an urgent basis. The agricultural production in Pakistan is already on the decline. Approximately, there was 45 percent fall in 2008 in wheat, and due to the shortage of water at Marala the quality of rice was affected. Presently, we are importing wheat, sugar, potatoes and so many other agricultural products. If we cannot stop the injustice committed by India on our rivers, we will face a situation just like Somalia after 2015. There is a huge shortage of water in different areas of Sindh and Balochistan. They get drinking water from miles away. Not only the rulers, but also scholars will be held responsible for their deprivation. The country as a whole is being pushed toward a grave situation of water scarcity. Our rulers did nothing while India prepared to abolish the Indus Waters Treaty. In 2002, it set up a committee to abolish it. That committee produced a report in the Indian Parliament in 2003 that the direction of rivers, which are flowing into Pakistan, should be changed by building new dams and barrages. Seemingly India worked on that basis without making a formal announcement of abolishing the treaty. While negotiations are held, the Indian Water Commissioner Aranga Nathan refuses to talk on the Kishen Ganga and Uri dams. In this situation, the dialogues held between the Pakistani and Indian Water Commissioners are only to cheat the people of Pakistan. Three rivers Sutlej, Beas and Ravi were given to India under the treaty. India could use 100 percent water of these three rivers. Now it wants to interfere in the three remaining Indus, Jhelum and Chenab rivers to steal Pakistans share of water. No doubt, the Ayub Khan government accepted the Indus Waters Treaty and gave the 100 percent water of the three western rivers to India on the assumption that that would settle the dispute for good. Due to this decision, the fertile districts of Punjab - Lahore, Kasur, Sheikhupura, Nankana Sahib, Faisalabad, Toba Tek Singh, Jhang, Okara, Sahiwal, Pakpattan, Vehari, Khaniwal, Multan, Lodhran, Bahwalnagar and Bahawalpur - faced water shortage for agricultural, industrial and other purposes. Moreover, the natural underground water charge has fallen from 70 to 100 feet due to the use of tubewells. Furthermore, natural dampness in the soil is progressing going down with time. The corrupt establishment of Pakistan sold three rivers to India in 1960. Now dams and barrages already constructed and being constructed by India on our three rivers Indus, Jhelum and Chenab are doing us great harm. India is going to construct a huge project also on the Indus River. We should not confine ourselves to dialogues, but should take active steps to harness our water resources also. Our Ambassadors in different capitals of the world should organise seminars and meetings to inform foreign governments writers and thinkers about the Indian water piracy, creating conditions that might provoke hostilities. Pakistani scholars, civil society, print and electronic media should also take apart in this endeavour and keep highlighting the issue. Informed analysts in the western world believe that future wars will be fought on the question of water. Its thinkers and scholars should know, irrespective of the fact who wins the war, it will be innocent people in the two countries who would be affected by the calamity. International organisations should take step against any odious plan of India before the situation becomes so critical that deadly wars erupt in the subcontinent.
