Hiroshima Day today

Hiroshima Day today
The day commemorates 6th August, 1945 when an atomic bomb was dropped in Hiroshima, followed a few days later by another dropped on the city of Nagasaki. The two bombings, which killed at least 129,000 people and, remain the only use of nuclear weapons for warfare in history. Tens of thousands more would later die of radiation exposure. Remembering the victims of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki who died and suffered the innumerable health hazards, Bangladesh like other countries organises different programmes today. The day is now a focus for anti-war and anti-nuclear discussions and demonstrations. Bangladesh Shanti Parishad will stage a discussion at Jatiya Press Club today while Civil Aviation and Tourism Minister Rashed Khan Menon will join it as the chief guest. Environmental group Green Belt Trust will organise a “peace rally” at Shahbagh square in the evening today. Candles will be lit and fanoos (air balloon) would be released seeking the peace of Gulshan and Sholakia victims and global peace as well.
