We have to learn our lessons from Japan bombings

Published 11/08/2015

Last week marked the 70th anniversary of the tragic atomic bombings in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

What occurred left the world stunned at the utter destruction that man had created.

Added to this peril is the fact that the nuclear weapons used 70 years ago were much less powerful than the atomic weapons that are possessed by even very small nations today.

I am among millions around the world who has seen the head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community, His Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmad, relentlessly traveling the world to speak at parliaments, warning world leaders of the disastrous situation the world is leading to before it's too late.

I particularly pay heed to the words he said in 2012: "Due to alliances between nations, blocs may be formed in future - or I can even say they have started forming.

"And it is not unlikely that disorder will continue to increase in the world, which will ultimately lead to a huge destruction."
