India from human rights violator to international treaty violator ?- Indian Prime Minister Modi talks about abrogating the Indus Water Treaty inked in 1960 in violation of international obligations

If India decides to unilaterally revoke the Indus Water Basin Treaty (IWBT) for which there are apparently not bright chances, it will renege on its own obligation noted in this agreement. On Monday, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi met senior officials to review the IWBT with a view to punishing Pakistan by blocking water flows to it, obviously in violation of the 56-year old treaty. However, the IWBT says the treaty may from time to time be modified by a duly ratified treaty concluded for that purpose between the two governments.  In addition, it says each of the two parties Pakistan and India - agrees that it will not invoke the treaty, anything contained therein, or anything arising out of the execution, thereof, in support of any of its own rights or claims whatsoever or in disputing any of the rights or claims whatsoever of the other party, other than those rights or claims which are expressly recognized or waived in the IWBT. According to the agreement, control over the three eastern rivers Beas, Ravi and Sutlej was given to India, while control over the three western rivers — Indus, Chenab and Jhelum to Pakistan. The treaty between has survived two wars of 1965 and 1971 between Pakistan and India, apart from high tensions frequently intensifying between them since the agreement was inked. UN Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson recently underlined that water also represents a source of cooperation and not just conflict. His remarks came at a General Assembly high-level side event on “water as a source of peace” even as the IWBT cropped up amid heightened tensions between India and Pakistan over the Uri army base episode.

India in denial mode on human right abuses in occupied kashmir, Refuses to give up Kashmir defying the will of Kashmiri people, Sushma swaraj tried to hoodwink the global community in the UNGA about massive human rights violations in held valley-Would not give up Kashir-Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India and will always remain so

Indian Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj, speaking at the 71st United Nations General Assembly, said on Monday that it was time to identify nations who nurture, peddle and export terrorism and isolate them if they don't join the global fight against terrorism. "In our midst, there are nations that still speak the language of terrorism, that nurture it, peddle it, and export it," said Swaraj in a veiled reference to Pakistan. The harsh India rhetoric at the UNGA comes after the attack on an Indian army base in India-held Kashmir earlier this month. The attack killed 18 Indian army personnel. India immediately blamed Pakistan for the attack.
