    ICJ orders India to stop building Kishan-Ganga Dam


    [​IMG]


    International Court of Justice has issued interim ordered to India to stop construction of Kishan-Ganga Dam.


    Pakistan submitted an application in the International Court of Justice (ICJ) regarding Indian construction of Kishan-Ganga Dam, blocking Pakistan’s water which, according to government of Pakistan, was an open violation of Indus water Treaty. After observing Islamabad’s complain ICJ issued interim order to Indian government that stop building further construction unless the case resolve.

    It was the unanimous decision of ICJ panel conducting the case.


    ICJ restricted New Dehli that it could not build any construction at Gurez that block Islamabad’s water.


    According to the ICJ order separate teams of both the countries would visit the place to resolve the issue. ICJ team would also observe the place.

    Pakistan’s Presidential spokesman Farhatullah Babar said Pakistan had submitted the application in the ICJ and now India could not build permanent construction of River Neelum.

    India should avoid going to international courts or groups they seem to have a bias against India first India's clean waiver is thrown out by NSG ,then DOHA failure is blamed on India for a second time and now this why even bother?? Learn from Nehru who made a fool of himself in front of the UN to avoid international forums. Why even continue with a stupid Indus water treaty?? Throw out the treaty keep 100% of the water and there won't be anymore sharing disagreements. To the idiots in the International court it is ok for China to divert and steal the Brahmaputra waters where 4-5 nations are impacted but this was stopped Bravo you incompetent jackasses!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    No non-Paki media source is carrying this information. Let us wait before we go bonkers shall we?

    ICJ can adjudicate over any matter without consent of both the parties .

    So Pakistan media seems to having some hidden propaganda behind this news

    They cannot give ex parte orders. India can refuse to adhere to its orders.

    As stated in Article 93 of the UN Charter, all 193 UN members are automatically parties to the Court's statute. Non-UN members may also become parties to the Court's statute under the Article 93(2) procedure. For example, before becoming a UN member state, Switzerland used this procedure in 1948 to become a party. And Nauru became a party in 1988. Once a state is a party to the Court's statute, it is entitled to participate in cases before the Court. However, being a party to the statute does not automatically give the Court jurisdiction over disputes involving those parties. The issue of jurisdiction is considered in the two types of ICJ cases: contentious issues and advisory opinions.

    I hope this opinion doesn't change when China builds its Bramhaputra dam on its territory.

    Difference mate is that there is a treaty between India and Pak about Indus waters. India is well within its right to construct a Dam there.

    China does not have a treaty with India and a third nation is also involved. Brahmaputra is more complex an issue.

    And yes the Chinis will be least bothered by what the ICJ has to say should they go full throttle into making a dam over the Brahmaputra

    Nothing much is going to change for us even if China builds a dam (considering it somehow manages to tame the unforgiving terrain and the river itself) on the Brahmaputra.

    There is not much agriculture going on in the North East and whatever is going on can be supported by the rivulets/streams originating in the NE itself along with the seasonal rainfall.

    The nation that will hear its death knell will be Bangladesh as pretty much their everything is dependent on Brahmaputra (Padma) over there.The flow will be reduced and whatever is remaining will be utilized in NE itself and we have a convenient excuse that its because of the Chinese.

    So we need not be overtly concerned about that.


    BTW what happened to my avatar ? :confused:

    Building a dam will probably help india as the yearly floods will grt controlled but the talks about china diverting the waters is what makes us worried.

    This news must be most likely a Paki creation like that fake wiki-leaks. I went to ICJ website and there are no press release regarding this while usually they do it immediately if any court decision is declared. Also the article is published in a unknown Paki new website - thenewstribe.com and the author of the article is "Katrina Jones" :pound:. Any Paki site article with an western sounding journalist means the news site is full of :bs:.

    Like I said, no non-Paki news media has menioned anything of that sort. Why are all the reports emanating only from the Paki media so far?

    If and when other sources verify the report then we should deem it to be correct.

    its an stay order so that investigations can be done. its not an anti decision. the Indian govt raced against time to complete it because once completed the stay wont matter much moreover stay cant be put on completed project. ICJ always put a stay on international issues so that they can investigate. moreover Indian govt can go on working on it till the notice actually reaches GoI which i think can atmost give a week time and nothing more.

    those who says that india should overrule ICJ should think of consequences as it is the only body which India can approach to deal with chinese regarding brahmputra dams.
