Hindus set to defend Pak against Indian aggression

Peshawar—The Hindu community along with Rajput Welfare Working Committee on Sunday protested against Indian aggression at Line of Control (LoC) outside Peshawar Press Club.
The protesters while holding Pakistani flags chanted slogans against Indian government and pledged support to the Pakistan Army. They said that they are ready to fight against enemy and sacrifice their lives for their dear homeland. Earlier, a rally chanting ‘Bharat Murdabad’ was held in Loralai in which the participants expressed outrage over India’s senseless act of hostility.
The school going children were also seen taking part in various rallies to register their protests and anger against furious India in Sukkur.
Tensions between the two arch rivals have been boiling since the Indian government accused Pakistan-based militants of launching an assault on an army base in Kashmir earlier this month that killed 18 soldiers.
Meanwhile, it is reported from Hyderabad that Sindh Chamber of Agriculture (SCA) has condemned the Indian threat of reneging the Indus Water Treaty, urging the government to raise the matter on the global forums.
A meeting at the SCA’s secretariat here Sunday, chaired by its President Dr. Syed Nadeem Qamar said any Indian attempt to block or reduce the river flows would be a violation of the treaty.
The meeting was attended by growers from Karachi, Sukkur, Ghotki, Sanghar, Larkana and other districts through the video link, according to a press release issued by the SCA.
The meeting opposed the Sindh government’s suggestion that the government might withdraw from fixing the official procurement rate of sugarcane crop. “As per the Sindh Sugar Factories Control Act, 1950, it is legal obligation of the Sindh government to fix the official procurement rate of sugarcane and enforce the same,” Dr Qamar observed.
The meeting warned that if the Sindh government deregulated the price fixing mechanism for various crops mainly the 4 cash crops produced in Sindh, the move would adversely affect the farmers.—APP
