    Just came across this writeup full of Evangilitis Zaha.

    Read on: and please don't puke on your computer after that. Though you will be tempted to do that.

    Check Indian, Afghan Dams For Floods In Pakistan


    • Indian company controls dam on Kabul River, tens of dams control flow of Kashmir water into Sindh, Punjab, Balochistan
    • Flood gates of Afghan Sarobi Dam, Indian Baglihar Dam were opened to drown Pakistani plains
    • Two US allies, the puppet regime in Kabul and the ‘strategic ally’ in New Delhi, declare water war on Pakistan
    • The tragedy one again raises question marks on the US double game against Pakistan in the region
    • Melting glaciers have nothing to do with this tragedy; it also doesn’t explain why Kabul river surged


    It’s not as if the clouds dodged borders and focused on Pakistan only. Pakistan’s water flows from Indian-occupied Kashmir and from US-occupied Afghanistan. A natural deluge should have shown some spillover effect into Indian and Afghan regions adjoining Pakistan. It is interesting that a second and a third wave of floods is expected in Pakistan when there’s no rain to justify it. Where is the water coming from? Here’s a perspective by Mr. Zaid Hamid, a security analyst at BrassTacks, and Ms. Gulpari Mehsud.

    There is a very sinister aspect to the floods in Pakistan that no one is discussing in the media. While there were rains and flooding in some rivers of the country, the size, scale and the gush of water suddenly pumped into these rivers defies logic. This is especially true considering that rains have slowed down since the breakout of the floods on 29 July.

    It is two weeks since the rains stopped but water continues to rise in the rivers Indus and Chenab. There was no flooding in India or in Afghanistan. Never before have rivers in all the provinces of Pakistan flooded at the same time without a similar act affecting the upstream, the source. While some parts of the country, like some areas of Khyber Pakhtun Khwa saw flooding in 1929, the simultaneous floods covering all of Pakistan and in all of the rivers flowing in from Afghanistan and Indian-occupied Kashmir is something truly unprecedented.

    The speed and quantity of the gushing water and the short span of time in which it picked momentum preclude the possibility that water from melting glaciers are solely responsible for the floods.

    There is no evidence that suggests that glaciers decided to melt at a faster speed just in time for the heavy monsoon rains.

    There is every likelihood that what we are seeing today is that the Indians and the US-backed regime in Kabul are using water as a weapon for the first time to deluge Pakistan. There is no doubt about it.

    From an initial look at the data, it seems that a natural spill of heavy rain was exploited by releasing water reservoirs in Indian-occupied Kashmir and on river Kabul. Let’s remember that the Met Office in Pakistan had already forecast heavy rains almost ten days before the first downpour. Different people received this news in different ways. Pakistani politicians, inept and incompetent as usual, slept over it. The anti-Pakistan terrorists based on Afghan soil and supported by several countries used this information to exacerbate terror against Pakistani citizens in the southwestern province of Balochistan, knowing that the State machinery would be distracted.

    Interestingly, even when it comes to water, it is Indians who are sitting to the left and right of Pakistan’s borders and controlling its water at the moment. The dam on Kabul river is handled by Indian personnel, while tens of dams choke Pakistan from the side of occupied Kashmir.

    RIVER KABUL

    In February, the Obama administration organized a meeting for senior government officials in Kabul and Islamabad who handle agricultural issues. The meeting was strangely held in Doha, Qatar, on US request. The agenda was to force the Pakistanis to grant agricultural concessions to the US-propped government in Kabul, without Pakistan getting anything in return.

    But in the meeting, Mr. Zahoor Malik, a senior Pakistani bureaucrat leading the Pakistani delegation, raised the issue of an Indian company with close links to the Indian government building a dam on river Kabul near the border with Pakistan. It is not clear what the Americans and Karzai’s officials had to say about this. There is a track record, however, that the incumbent pro-US government in Islamabad has often swept such issues under the carpet in order not to jeopardize Washington’s support for the Zardari government.

    All major rivers flowing into Pakistan including the Indus are blocked by Indian-built dams.

    US and British officials often defend India and dismiss Pakistani concerns as ‘conspiracy theories.’ Some Pakistani analysts accuse elements within US government and intelligence of using Afghan soil against Pakistan.

    But imagine this: India, a country that faces a debilitating conflict over Kashmir with Pakistan, goes to build tens of small and medium sized dams on all the rivers flowing down to Pakistan, and everything is supposed to work out smoothly? Not possible, even theoretically. But luckily Indian actions on the ground more than strengthen Pakistani concerns.

    After the first wave of floods, the other rivers were flowing normally and no extraordinary rains followed. But suddenly Chenab and Indus Rivers overflowed and the flow picked up speed, turning into a flood. India’s Baghliar Dam in occupied Kashmir opened its flood gates to cause a tragedy in the plains of Pakistan [Sindh and Punjab]. While Sarobi Dam – the Indian-maintained dam near Kabul – controls the flow of Kabul River entering Pakistan. The same thing happened here. Monsoons did not lash Afghanistan and there was no flooding there of any magnitude. But again, strangely, water flowing from river Kabul into Pakistan dramatically picked up speed as water levels increased turning into a flood. The speed with which this transformation occurred could have happened only because of one of two reasons: massive rains in Afghanistan or because Sarobi Dam released large amounts of water over a sustainable period of time.

    PAKISTANI POLITICIANS

    ANP, a US-allied party with strong links to Kabul and New Delhi and ruling the Pakistani northwestern province, has always opposed the construction of the Kalabagh Dam which would have saved thousands of lives and property had it been there. The ANP has argued that building the dam would drown the city of Nowshehra. Ironically, ANP’s lie was exposed when not only Nowshehra but also Charsadda drowned without the Kalabagh Dam being there and thanks to the artificial floods created in Kabul River by ANP’s Indian and Afghan patrons.

    [Earlier this year, Washington and New Delhi came to ANP’s defense on the Kalabagh Dam project by lobbying the World Bank to refuse Islamabad’s request for funding the dam. The Bank obliged and said it can’t fund the project due to Indian objections.]

    OUR RESPONSE
    How Pakistan responds to this latest Indian water war and aggression is something that remains to be seen. What is confirmed is that the incumbent pro-US government in Islamabad is useless when it comes to defending the Pakistani interest. To be fair to this government, this unusual situation in Islamabad started under former President Musharraf and continues with the current ‘elected’ government with amazing continuity. This water aggression has proved more lethal than the TTP [so-called Pakistani Taliban] and the BLA insurgencies, both of which were started from the Afghan springboard to punish Pakistan.

    Pakistan has taken another serious hit, more from its corrupt rulers than external enemies. These Indian Dams now need to be destroyed. India has declared war on us by exploiting and orchestrating these floods.

    zaid hamid is such a joker. i mean u got to be absolutely braindead(what..??) to say the kind of things he use to say , and that too , with full confidence and conscience.
    and even bigger tragedy is that people of his nation thinks he is such a hero.

    i remember one of my youtube frend was asking me that we should start making videos on youtube reply to the claims of zaid haimd.i said no we shouldnt , he is doing more damage to pakistan then even our raw cant do.

    anyways , my funniest zaid hamid comment was---- "2012 tak pakistani chand pe baithey hongey , sari duniya k decisions pakistan se liye ja rahe hongey , aur delhi me radio pakistan ki awaz sunai degi."
    "aur us bade khitte ka naam pakistan hoga"

    man. this guy is such a shame on human intelligence.

    ZH is a clown. I hope his views appeal only to a minority there or else it's gonna take a looong time for us to have any breakthroughs in negos. It's complex as it is. With his kind of nonsense floating around, it'll be near impossible to cut through.

    Sure he's a clown but its entertaining to see how millions of people follow him blindly, and how illogical he is.
    Actually he's not all that stupid. He's very cunning. He knows how to control people. He knows how to drive emotions of people of Pakistan. He very well understands that majority of Pakistanis are uneducated and too emotional and can be made to think whatever he wants them to. So he uses his lectures and audio tapes as a tool to control the people, spread propaganda and gain popularity. He might enter politics in years to come.

    No one is ready to prove him wrong and he's gone too far now. Nobody would believe the truth. Pakistanis are blind in patriotism and Zaid uses patriotism as his magic stick.

    It's really astonishing how an educated man, lives in his own sweet bubble. Its high time for him to be banned not only in Pakistan but also around the Muslim world for spreading all this hate without any valid evidence. With millions of Pakistanis blindly following him shows how entrenched their hate for India, Israel and America really is. I wonder how many people he might have convinced to join the Taliban, AQ, LeT, etc.

    I don't think it's a lack of patriotism alone. They still have a 'romantic' view of history- people 'leading them to greatness'- like Genghis Khan. For many indians it's different. If Manmohan Singh were replaced by Rahul Gandhi, ABVP or even Advani, we expect the system to be largely the same and evolving. To us the PM is jus the symbolic head of a large state system. Pak guys want a 'leader' to lead them into greatness. I don't think we are in that age anymore. what they need is a lot of patience and plugging away to get their system in place without waiting for a messiah. Don't think they're ready to do that. They want a redeemer- a qaid.

    Guys please don't ridicule him so much. I really fear Gazwa-e-Hind a lot. Tomorrow only he may order for the attack & day after tomorrow you'll see Pakistani flag on Red Fort. Spare him please. I live in Delhi, don't want to see his "massive invasion force" crushing my city.. :lol:
