If India scraps Indus Treaty, there will be blood in rivers: Hafiz Saeed

Jamaat-ud-Dawah chief and Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed on Friday said if India stopped the river waters of Pakistan then there would be "blood in the rivers".

India has been, since the escalation of tensions after the Uri attack, indicating its intention to revisit the Indus Water Treaty.

On November 25, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said that waters of Sutlej, Beas and Ravi rivers "rightfully" belong to India will be stopped from going "waste" in Pakistan.


Speaking at a large Kashmir Conference rally at Faisalabad, some 130 kms from Lahore, Saeed said "Indian army is responsible for the killing of 650,000 Kashmiri Muslims. Now the Kashmiri Mujahideen are giving a befitting reply to India at Akhnoor, Uri and other places".

He said the "Mujaheddin are destroying India". "India cannot stop them from carrying out their mission...It is not me alone but now Baloch people and other Pakistanis are with us," he said, adding Baloch leader Shahzain Bugti has joined hands with him.

Bugti, chairman of Jamhuri Watan Party, announced his support at the rally for the Kashmir cause saying Balochistan is with Kashmiri people.

"As many as 50,000 Baloch youth are ready to join the Kashmir freedom movement and waiting for Hafiz Saeed’s call," Bugti said.

"Participation of the leader of Bugti tribe in Kashmir Conference is a message to India that Baloch are joining the Kashmir freedom movement," he said.
