More Severe Earthquakes May Hit Kashmir In Future

the present earthquake would be equivalent to the one in 1501 which means that there exists a possibility of another major slip in Kashmir's future," he added.

The nature of aftershocks the region experienced after the quake was also a matter of concern, he further said. The north-west tip of the rupture which extended to "the mountains behind Muzaffarabad" had recorded the expected number of aftershocks, he said, while the south-eastern tip of the rupture, which extends to the plains below the Himalayas, had shown "a surprising and worrying calm".

"This means that pressure is building up around the south-eastern tip. In other words, it means that should the fault line slip in the south-east, the shockwave is very likely to travel towards the plains of Punjab - possibly extending down to the historic city of Lahore,” he said.

The only way out, he said, was for the PoK Government to put together a massive reconstruction exercise across the quake zone. Pakistan, he said, must ensure that proper earthquake proof structures are erected "The Government needs to ensure that whatever new structures are built are able to withstand the next earthquake, the next one and the next one. From what we know of Kashmir's history, there may well be a sequence of earthquakes spread over the next 50 years. Of course 50 years may sound an awfully long time to a politician, but it is the perfect length of time to get the structure of the buildings right," he further said.
