IDPD Statement on Indo-Pak Tension


Indian Doctors for Peace and Development (IDPD) has condemned the killing of Indian solders by the Pakistanis. This has led to increase in tension between the two countries which is detrimental to peace and development in the region. Both the countries are nuclear weapon state and any increase in tension poses the danger of these weapons of mass destruction. Studies have shown that use of existing nuclear weapons by the two countries could lead to death of 1.2 crores people on both sides. We have already witnessed the effect of nuclear weapons on human population in Hiroshima & Nagasaki on 6 and 9 August 1945 respectively. Delegation of the IDPD has been to Hiroshima in 2009 & 2012 and have witnessed with our eyes in the Hiroshima museum the agonizing picture after the nuclear weapons fell in the Hiroshima. Therefore it is imperative that Pakistan government takes steps to avoid repetition of such heinous incident. Both countries must initiate diplomatic efforts to defuse the tension. More people to people exchange programmes should be facilitated to build mutual trust.
