New Delhi: May 28, 2016. (PCP) Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party described US President Mr. Barack Obama’s visit to A-bomb burnt into ashes Hiroshima in 1945 by the US deserves commendations that US President representing a white majority state dared visit the victims of A-bomb in 1945 and also dared shaking hands with them. Is it less than apology on the part of US President sitting on the heaps of atom and hydrogen bombs fired by the US threatening the existence of the world. Prof.Bhim Singh congratulated President Obama for his daring visit to Hiroshima being a sitting President of the USA though hailing from a minority fraternity in the USA. Prof.Bhim Singh said that President Obama has committed several blunders during his presidency yet his most daring part to visit Hiroshima as the US President and expressing concern over the fate of Japanese A-bomb victims of 1945 shall be written as a remarkable act of the US President.
Prof.Bhim Singh reminded President Obama that he (Bhim Singh) had an opportunity to meet several victims of a suffering in the Treatment Centre in Hiroshima in 1972 during his peace mission travels on motorcycle around the world (1967-1973). He had an opportunity to meet several A-bomb survivors including the two namely, Eiji Hattori (73), Survivor & Takeo Sugiyama (85), Former Junior High School Teacher who have been under treatment in a caring centre at Hiroshima. Prof.Bhim Singh said that several A-bomb patients died in the caring centres ever since I visited Hiroshima in 1972. I as a peace monger who travelled the whole world on two-wheels on peace mission appealing for complete disarmament feel surprised that President of the United States of America, the Monarch of nuclear power in the world dared visit Hiroshima which was perished and turned into ashes killing more than 200,000 people on the spot on August 6, 1945 just for pleasure sake. Today President of that country has demonstrated moral strength of a ‘Black President’ of a country which has the monopoly of nuclear weapons today. Prof.Bhim Singh had mentioned this Trauma Centres cries in his book, ‘Around the World on Motorcycle on Peace Mission’.
President Obama by his visit to Hiroshima a ravaged city by his ancestors has sent a global message to the war mongers around the world that peace is the only way to save the world from turning to ashes. The peace is possible only when the masters of nuclear weapons and bombs shall decide to destroy/dismantle all the nuclear weapons in their control so that the world may survive and the people shall live in peace, harmony and tranquility forever.
Prof.Bhim Singh in his message to President Obama said that the American President cannot be exempted from the commission of blunders which USA has committed in recent past vis-à-vis Iraq, Syria, Libya, Egypt and other places yet he deserves forgiveness for having demonstrated courage and will to express apology to the world for the grave offence (dropping atom bombs in Japan in 1945) committed by the USA in the second world war.
In his message to President Obama, Prof.Bhim Singh said bravo Obama. ‘Wisdom lies in daring’.
