Indian Opportunism: Delhi Is Worsening Pakistan Disaster By Flooding Its Rivers


… and making money out of Pakistani misfortune

  • Someone in the Zardari government is colluding with the Indians and flooding Pakistani markets with Indian produce
  • Zardari govt. colluded with US to allow Afghan-India trade at Pakistan’s expense
  • Whose side is the Pakistani govt. on: India’s side, America’s side, or Pakistan’s side?
  • Stop benefiting Indian cotton producers at Pakistan’s expense

Baglihar Dam in occupied Kashmir: a future Pak-India flashpoint

For anyone still believing in Indian altruism towards Pakistan in its hour of suffering and need, a brief look at Indian actions recently will put an end to any such illusions.

If India really wanted to offer aid to Pakistan without seeking political capital from it, it would have given it through the United Nations fund. But that was never the Indian intent.

After all, India has continued to release water into Pakistan’s overflowing rivers deliberately to aggravate the flood situation. This is why India has refused to put in place a telemetry system on its dams on Kashmiri rivers as part of the Indus Waters Treaty infrastructure.

Nor is this all.

Indian opportunism knows no bounds and the Indians are already exploiting Pakistan’s misfortunes as a result of the flood devastation – especially in the agricultural sector.

Already the markets in the cities are filled with Indian vegetables and one needs to ask how these are coming in? Have we removed all restrictions on Indian trade through Wagah?

But it is not just the vegetable market India is eyeing. The Indian government has already moved to take advantage of the destruction of the bulk of Pakistan’s cotton crop as a result of the floods. Knowing that the textile industry would suffer a shortfall of local cotton, the Indian government has lifted an earlier ban on cotton export to enable India to meet the Pakistani textile industry’s anticipated demand. The ban had been in place to keep domestic prices down. Now, with a bumper cotton harvest and ample rain, Indian producers are all ready to export cotton to Pakistan in October. Apparently Pakistan has been importing cotton from India earlier also. However, the dynamics are different now with India’s suspect role of releasing water into our overflowing rivers. There is also the present Indian hostile posturing towards Pakistan and its refusal to renew the composite dialogue. Finally, there is the renewed killing of Kashmiris by Indian forces in Occupied Kashmir. As it is, our government has maintained a shameful silence on this issue and no official voice has been raised in support of the new Kashmiri intifada.

To allow Indian cotton producers to benefit from our flood disaster would be immoral and politically ridiculous since it would effectively reflect a tacit condoning of India’s hostile posture. Not only should Pakistan’s textile industry look to other cotton producers like China, the Pakistan government should make its India policy, especially in terms of trade, transparent. What exactly have we given to India in terms of trade access? At a time when India is actively seeking to undermine Pakistan on all fronts including abetting militancy within the country, especially in Balochistan, Pakistan’s government needs to stand firm against any Indian intrusion into our economic sphere – especially at the cost of the people of Pakistan’s interests.

  2. Dear Sir/Madam
    Piare Mohatarams/Piari Mohataramas,

    The topic Delhi is opportunistic… is rather a mild title, especially when 4% of the Brahmins plus 11% of the Hindus (neither a religion nor a culture) of more than 1.2 billion population of the alleged Indian democracy of the ‘Brahmins-Hindus and pro-Brahmins-Hindus’ anre nothing but the ‘Devils and Evil forces’
    The people of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and the ‘Landless Sikh Nation, PUNJAB (under the Indian occupation since 15th August, 1947) must understand that they have no choice to ‘uproot the Evil Empire of the ‘Brahmins-Hindus’, if they would like to live peacefully in their respective nations. Also, these both nations must throw their support behind the nationalities who are seek to “break the chains of the Evil Brahminical-Hindus empire.”
    The Landless Sikh Nation, PUNJAB’s chief minister, a turbaned Brahmin/Hindu, Prakash (Hanera/Darkness) Sinh alias Chand Badal, his “joe boys and joe girls”, Akali Dal-Badal Private Limited, Incorporation, are nothing but the ‘Enemy of the Humanity’.
    I wish you all the very best to fight and uproot the evil, along with to get rid of the ‘impotent’ political machinery of Pakistan. The machinery which has not meant for the good of the People/Awam of Pakistan.
    Best wishes and warmest regards.

    • Dear Sir/Madam,

      Aslaam O Alaikum!

      Regretfully, I have to say that I have no concessions for the anti-humanity creatures. I believe in business and rectifying the problems of humanity.
      Enough is enough. Innocents have suffered enough. The political problems have to be addresses by peaceful means. And that is what I have done. I do not subscribe to the peace of the ‘Brahmins-Hindus’ of the alleged Indian democracy of the ‘Brahmins-Hindus’.
      Your brother,

        Dear Dr Atwar,

        It’s nice to hear comments such as yours. The more business, cultural and sports dealings Pakistan and India have with each other, the better things will go. Increased interdependence will make both nations stronger together, which Partition unfortunately has worked against. Maybe that border could be invisible someday.
