Dear President Thomas Bach,

 

I am sharing with you a message addressed to me from an eminent Indian statesman, warning against the possibility of the Tokyo Olympic Games causing a exponential rise in Covid infections and deaths like in India.

My numerous messages addressed to you so far have hopefully clarified the position of Japanese civil society in favor of the cancellation of the Tokyo Olympic Games as soon as possible.

The media no longer hesitates to invite a debate on the plan B.

 

With highest regards,

Mitsuhei Murata

All strength to your elbow in the crucial months ahead. We went in for a number of state assembly elections, including the one in West Bengal where it was a staggered exercise in eight stages – all calling for huge rallies in which all COVID protocols were ignored, as well as huge religion-related mass festivals involving hundreds of thousands of unmasked worshippers, that has contributed to the current exponential rise in Covid infections and deaths. The Tokyo Olympics may have a similar outcome though the Japanese, as a people, are far more disciplined than Indians. Whichever way this pans out, you are to be felicitated for standing up alone for wisdom and good sense. That shows real intelligence and concern for humanity and undergirds your fight for your principles. May you remain blessed.
