Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that he is “committed” to cutting the water supply to Pakistan because of hostilities in the volatile Kashmir region.

Modi said at the opening of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in the city of Bathinda on Friday that the government was “committed” to getting “farmers their rights.”

“Now every drop of this water will be stopped and I will give that to … Indian farmers. I am committed to this,” Modi stated.

He said he also already setup a task force to oversee that “each drop of water” does not reach Pakistan.

Under an internationally mediated agreement between India and Pakistan signed in 1960, named the Indus Waters Treaty, the water of six rivers, namely Beas, Ravi, Sutlej, Indus, Chenab and Jhelum, are to be shared between the two countries.

On November 24, Sartaj Aziz, Pakistan’s adviser to the prime minister on foreign affairs, said in response to Modi’s decision that the revocation of the Indus Waters Treaty by India where water of the Beas, Ravi, Sutlej, Indus, Chenab and Jhelum rivers, are to be shared between the two countries, “can be taken as an act of war.”

Islamabad will “react befittingly” if Modi attempts to violate the Indus Waters Treaty, Aziz warned.

Pakistan has emphasized that it will continue to support separatist Islamist fighters in Kashmir, the cause of the latest Indian-Pakistani hostilities.

The Kashmir issue is an “unfinished agenda of the partition,” Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif claimed on Thursday.

Islamabad will never stop supporting the “freedom struggle of Kashmiris,” the Pakistani premier said.

Nevertheless, things may badly escalate. Better remember that both are nuke power, even if they are small nuke powers, it may hurt very bad…
