In a follow-up to my blog post earlier today "Can India and Pakistan Share the Indus?", I note that Hafiz Saeed, the founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba earlier this week called for India to stop its 'Water terrorism'. Water has long been a cause of tension between the two nations, but if one of the men most wanted by India takes it up as a cause, this issue could quickly become more dangerous.
Saeed's remarks came on Sunday in Lahore, where he said:
The next war between India and Pakistan could be fought over water if India does not stop its ‘water terrorism’Clearly, inflamatory language like this will not help the two nations to have a calm dialogue.
