Lahore, Mar. 8 (ANI): Jamat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed has said India has imposed war on Pakistan by constructing illegal dams and diverting water of Pakistani rivers, and Islamabad should be ready to counter this hostility.

Addressing JuD's protest rally against theft of Pakistani waters by India, the mastermind of the Mumbai terror attacks said that water is a matter of life and death for Pakistan, and vowed to stage protests across the country against Indian water aggression.

"I am declared guilty of raising voice for the oppressed people of Held Kashmir but my religion allows me for that," the Nation quoted Saeed, as saying.

"UN Security Council imposed sanctions against Jamatud Dawah but now it is silent on controversial Indian plans in Held Kashmir," he added.

He pointed out that due to shortage of water, Pakistan would have to face a lot of hardships in agriculture sector besides acute scarcity of potable water.

Meanwhile, hundreds of JuD activists participated in the rally, which culminated in front of Punjab Assembly.

The farmer wing of JuD also held the 'Water Rally' in Lahore to protest construction of Indian dams on rivers in Kashmir, and demanded the government to take practical steps to secure Pakistani water. (ANI)
