Pakistan can kneel down even without firing a single bullet, India need to take a bold step and that is nothing but terminate one single treaty with Pakistan that can make Pakistan thirsty for even a single drop of water. Now this is the time to review all the treaties with Pakistan. And one of the strategic way to hit back at Pakistan is to repudiate the Indus Water Treaty. As per the provisions in the treaty, India can use only 20% of the total water carried by the Indus river.If Pakistan can throw Shimla agreement in dustbin, why can’t we do the same with Indus Water Treaty 1960.
If you want to fight against any nation then first attack on their economy that is called modern war. Economy influences war results . There are many Pakistani rivers that flow through India first. If India withdraw Indus Water Treaty Sep,1960 then it will affect Pakistan in many different ways. It can potentially create droughts and famines in Pakistan.
People are demanding to terminate Indus water treaty on social sites.
#IndusWaterTreaty call off India water treaty.. let this terror nation starve. They drink our water and fight against us.

What is Indus Waters Treaty ?
The Indus Waters Treaty is a water-distribution treaty between India and Pakistan, brokered by the World Bank (then the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development). The treaty was signed in Karachi on September 19, 1960 by Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and President of Pakistan Ayub Khan. According to this agreement, control over the three “eastern” rivers — the Beas, Ravi and Sutlej — was given to India and the three “western” rivers — the Indus, Chenab and Jhelum — to Pakistan. The treaty was a result of Pakistani fear that since the source rivers of the Indus basin were in India, it could potentially create droughts and famines in Pakistan, especially at times of war.
Indus River Background:
The waters of the Indus basin begin in Tibet and the Himalayan mountains in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. They flow from the hills through the states of Punjab and Sindh, converging in Pakistan and emptying into the Arabian Sea south of Karachi.
