London (UK) Sept 30 (ANI): Sindhi and Baloch political activists on Sunday organised a demonstration outside the Pakistan High Commission in London to show their dissatisfaction against the construction of dams on River Indus.
The protest was organised by World Sindhi Congress (WSC), which believes the construction of Diamer-Bhasha Dam on River Indus is not merely a political issue, but a matter of life and death for the Sindhi people.
KARACHI/ HYDERABAD: The Sindh High Court Bar Association (SHCBA) announced its opposition to any move to build dams on Indus River without the consent of Sindh, citing inter-provincial disputes between Punjab and Sindh on water sharing since 1859. The legal fraternity of SHCBA also held a demonstration in Hyderabad on Monday to express its disapproval.
“The SHCBA, keeping in view the water disputes between Sindh and Punjab and perusing Articles 153, 154 and 155 of the Constitution, strongly condemns violation of the said articles,” reads a three-page resolution signed by SHCBA Vice President Advocate Syed Muhammad Waseem Shah and General Secretary Advocate Ishrat Ali Lohar.

They had been sentenced to death by Branch 2 of the Zahedan Revolutionary Court back in November of 2017.
