JuD chief Hafiz Saeed says India flooded Pakistan, alleges 'water terrorism'

Terror mastermind and chief of Lashkar-e-Taiba's front Jamaat-ud-Dawah Hafiz Saeed has been famous for spreading hatred against India. However, a recent statement made by the JuD chief goes on to show that, after all, the Saeed has a funny bone. Take his latest tweets on Jammu and Kashmir and Pakistan floods for instance. A Twitter account, purportedly of Jama't ud Da'wah (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed said this on Tuesday:

Yes. According to Saeed, India has "used water aggression" against Pakistan. A natural disaster that has devastated parts of both India and Pakistan is, according to him, an Indian conspiracy. He thinks India can bring rain and cause misery to itself to cause it to Pakistanis. It's not funny, actually. There were a string of such tweets:

What's worrying is that this misinformation is gaining traction in Pakistan. People who do not have access to facts are swayed by this propaganda, said a report in The India Today.

In an opinion piece in the Dawn blog, the author says:

"A new narrative of hate that blames all our water woes on India is winning popular perceptions in Pakistan. The counter narrative is too technical for the common person to comprehend and appreciate."

The author explains how a combo of pictures titled ‘River Ravi in Pakistan and in India’, shows the the Pakistani part obviously dry as dust and makes JuD work much simpler and more communicative. It builds on the hatred for India that has been cultivated on the issue of Kashmir for decades and it is now being extended to waters that flow from that region.

Like we noticed in an earlier post, social networking sites could come as a huge help and at the same time is extremely capable of  becoming a place for inane yet harmful conversations. As Twitter was hijacked by fools bickering over religion (because that's what causes flood) terror outfits like JuD and its chief gave them more hay to chew on.
