When the Nile was flooded due to deeds of the Pharaohs of Egypt, the Pharaoh ascribed it to the 'accursed deeds of Prophet Moses. Allah says in the Holy Quran that the deluge of Nile was due to the accursed deeds of Pharaoh and his companions who defied Allah. Pakistan is in a similar situation today. We are faced with a historic flood today that was likely caused by the 'Kufran-e-Naimat our rulers had done by not building the Kalabagh dam. They defied Allah by not benefiting from the life-giving waters of Indus. Thus, the whole country, especially KP and Sindh, are still submerged even after the floods have receded. Those that opposed the dam are responsible for the devastation brought upon Pakistan. The PM claims to be a descendent of Hazrat Ghous-e-Azam. Is that lineage reflected in his actions? He is delaying matters of such vital importance under the false and elusive 'search for consensus while making no efforts against the wayward politicians that are part of the unholy coalition against Kalabagh dam? -Dr M YAQOOB BHATTI, Lahore, September 20.
