Weaponized water: India threatens to divert 3 rivers away from Pakistan

Indian cricket board reportedly set to ask for Pakistan World Cup ban India to cut water to Pakistan as Kashmir conflict escalates

India failed to gain support of worldwide community as the countries including United States of America, China and Saudi Arabia had rejected Indian narrative against Pakistan regarding Pulwama incident, he said while talking to a private TV channel.

"Whether (Pakistan-based) JeM (Jaish-e-Mohammad) has claimed the responsibility for the attack for taking credit or is actually involved, is a matter of investigation".

The US President, however, said that since stopping $1.3 billion in aid to Islamabad nine months ago, "we've developed a much better relationship with Pakistan over the last short period of time than we had".

He further said: "Should you (India) initiate any reaction first, you would never be able to surprise us we will surprise you".

Amid crescendoing war hysteria and relentless threats of military action from India, the Pakistan Army on Friday also issued an unambiguous warning to New Delhi: "Don't mess with Pakistan".

Trump, however, added the U.S. has developed a "much better" relationship recently with Pakistan and added that the United States may set up some meetings with Pakistan.

India has launched "a concerted campaign to whip up hatred and violence against Kashmiris and discrimination against them across India", the Pakistani foreign minister said.

Tellingly, Trump's statements on the situation came in the presence of Chinese Vice Premier Liu He, just before their talks.

Water Resources Minister Nitin Gadkari said that India will harness its share of unused water from three rivers to help Indian states.

India has chose to "stop" the flow of its share of water to Pakistan from rivers under the Indus Water Treaty.

New Delhi piled the blame on Islamabad for the attack, which was strongly refuted by the Pakistani leadership.

"A dossier, nailing the culpability of Pakistan in the terror attack in Pulwama, will be given to the FATF", a senior intelligence official said.

He said that the troubling situation in Jammu and Kashmir also warrants attention from the global humanitarian law perspective, especially the four Geneva Conventions.

U.S. was among the groups that participated in the protest.

Tensions between India and Pakistan have risen after New Delhi blamed Islamabad for the February 14 attack in which an explosive-laden vehicle rammed into a paramilitary bus in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir, killing at least 40 Indian troops.

On 14th of this month, a CRPF convoy was attacked by a suicide bomber in the Pulwama area of Jammu and Kashmir, killing over 40 personnel while injuring plenty more. With this, India wants to expose Pakistan's links with terrorism and build pressure on the neighbouring country.
