Pak reports blame India and US for floods

A group of Pakistani people have began a campaign blaming India, the US and Afghanistan for floods. They are getting huge supports from Pakistani media which help them appearing in the news head-lines. The reports claimed that Indian government had deliberately diverted waters from dams in Jammu and Kashmir and from the ones it controlled in Afghanistan. Some reports also claimed that the US was manipulating weather patterns of Pakistan. Both the Indian and US government dismissed the idea with incredulity.
