Human Rights

Human rights are commonly understood as “inalienable fundamental rights to which a person is inherently entitled simply because she or he is a human being.” Human rights are thus conceived as universal (applicable everywhere) and egalitarian (the same for everyone). These rights may exist as natural rights or as legal rights, in both national and international law. International human rights law lays down obligations of Governments to act in certain ways or to refrain from certain acts, in order to promote and protect human rights and fundamental freedoms of individuals or groups.

In order to protect human rights of the marginalised sections, we have been part of various movement and we also undertake cases of human rights violations. Under the Protection of Human Rights Act, 1993, National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) and various State Human Rights Commissions have been constituted. These commissions see specific cases of human rights violations and recommend appropriate actions against the violators. Human Rights also include cases of right to food, child rights, women’s rights, rights of disabled persons, dalit rights, prisoners’ rights etc.
