Hiroshima observes 62nd anniversary of the nuclear attack
Aug 06: More than 40,000 people across the country and the world gathered today on Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, Hiroshima Japan for paying homage to the death survivals and live suffers, who were either died or wounded 62 years before in the second world war, when US fighter plane struck a nuclear bomb in this city on Aug 06 to get knell down the Japan, which was proving a hard nut to crack for the friend nations of that time.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe addressed the gathering after a minute silence held today at 8.15 am local time (2315 GMT Sunday) in the Park, the nearby epicenter of that big bang incident. The Japanese along with the whole world is memorizing the 62 nd anniversary of Hiroshima atomic bomb blast today.
US B-29 bomber Enola Gay dropped the first ever atom bomb on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945 that killed an estimated 1,40,000 people immediately or within a few months after this blood bath incident. Just after three days, another US plane dropped a plutonium bomb, one of the deadliest weapons on the city of Nagasaki that killed about 80,000 people. More than that has been suffering from the released radioactive radiations since the bombing till now. Despite of these horrible pains, Japan has been stand on its three long-standing principles of not possessing, developing or allowing nuclear weapons on Japanese soil.
“Japan has been taking the path toward global peace for 62 years since World War II. The tragedies of Hiroshima and Nagasaki should never be repeated in any place on earth. We will take an initiative in the international community and devote ourselves wholeheartedly toward the abolition of nuclear weapons and realisation of peace’’, said PM Abe.
While Tadatoshi Akiba, the mayor of the Hiroshima city read a peace declaration in which he appealed to the world to leave the path of destruction by making the lethal weapons like nuclear bombs. “To ensure that no one else ever suffers as we did…. we must never forget their accomplishment in preventing a third use of nuclear weapons”.
Though this year’s memorial comes at a particularly sensitive time for Japan when many countries are threatening to develop the nuclear weapon includes Iran and North Korea that are in the top of the US blacklist. North Korea has already done a nuclear taste on October 09 last year.
Fumio Kyuma, the Japanese Defence Minister had resigned last month in the midst of a public protest over the justification of US atomic bombings as he delivered a controversial speech over subsidies provided to the bomb victims. On the other hand Prime Minister Abe apologized on Sunday to the A-bomb survivors (Hiroshima Bomb Survivals) for Kyuma's remarks and ensured to review the government's screening of the victims to qualify for subsidies.
Some prominent politicians of Japan are asking for a debate across the country for the long standing principals of Central government to ‘not develop, allow or possess the nuclear bomb’ as the nearby countries are developing the deadly weapons.
