In a 2016 editorial in a Bangladeshi newspaper, Water war now in India’s Silicon Valley, Aziz Rahman wrote:
A war on water was about to break out when President Ayub Khan of the then Pakistan threatened to bomb the Farakka. He was restrained by the world leaders.
This was similarly reported in a 2014 comment thread:
Ayub Khan threatened India to bomb Farakka Barage (sic), if it was put into operation,
Did Khan make this threat?
