Why Hypocrisy Courses Through The Hiroshima Declaration

The Physicians for Social Responsibility, a public health group and recipient of the 1985 Nobel Peace Prize, estimates in a recent landmark study that 1.3 million people, overwhelmingly Muslim, have perished as a direct consequence of the US-led global war on terror.

Does Kerry's heart not sink when he reads stats like these?

Farewell to India's Missile Man

Dr APJ Abdul Kalam came to be known as India's "Missile Man" amongst political circles following his aggressive pursuit of nuclear weapon and strategic missile defence programmes, both of which were considered by him as vital milestones to ensuring security and becoming a global superpower. Even in his hawkish political endeavours, Dr Kalam remained fundamentally committed to the promotion of education and science, firmly believing they would give Indian society a much-needed edge in the new globalised and interdependent world.

Hiroshima's Message: Nuclear Weapons Are A Sinful Use Of Science, Resources

Like millions of Indians, I believed in the myth that nuclear weapons are necessary for national security when our government, headed by former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, made India a nuclear-weapons nation in May 1998. Indeed, I was working closely with him in the prime minister's office those days. I have since become a convert to the cause of a nuclear weapons-free world. I now believe that India's moral strength and stature as a campaigner for world peace, and especially for global nuclear disarmament, was diminished after it started to build its own nuclear arsenal.
