A reminder on 10th December INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS DAY 

Man is a unique animal and no other creature dares to stand tall before him in terms of intellect, wisdom and gregariousness.Who can deny the fact that human species (Homo sapiens) is the best creation of the ALMIGHTY GOD?

Although every man is almost lost in this material world, but still for happiness, prosperity, advancement and protection, he needs some rights.

HUMAN RIGHTS are our basic claims which we deserve for being human beings. They incorporate key values viz nobility, equality, justice and reverence. They safeguard us, particularly those who may have to encounter abuse, neglect and seclusion. They are our amour.

The INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS DAY is annually observed on 10th December the world over. The occasion commemorates that auspicious day of 1948 when the UN General Assembly embraced the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). Since its release, UDHR has become a vital testimony of what should be considered as the standard for basic equality and human dignity.

The theme of this year is : RECOVER BETTER—STAND UP FOR HUMAN RIGHTS.The slogan relates to Covid 19 pandemic and concentrates on the urgency to build back better by ensuring that human rights are crucial for recovery efforts.

The US considers Free Speech and Right to Vote as the chief human rights.

One of the aims of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights is Gender Equality.

In India, the NATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION (NHRC) was created in October,1993 reflecting concern for protection and promotion of human rights of ‘Right To Equality’, ‘Right To Freedom Of Speech & Expression’ and ‘Right To Freedom Of Religion’   which are some of the several fundamental rights enshrined in our constitution.

No one can deny the fact that the task of wiping away human atrocities globally is a herculean task because the world is badly divided into fragments by economic gulfs and religious divergences. Hardly exists a country which has not witnessed till date massacres, bloodsheds or genocides. Violence perpetrated by religious or political fanatics of any State should also be denounced and eradicated for a better world.

HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATION is no less than a crime and this must be conceived a violation of rights of not only of an individual, but of the whole humanity .

The repercussions of gross violation of human rights on victims are really traumatic, multidimensional and long-lasting. The victims may lead a mentally lame life virtually throughout, if not supported.

For each nation, the top most yearning should be an urge to revere ‘Human rights’ as a national responsibility, a moral obligation and God’s dictum of universal brotherhood.

Let us be sincere in protecting Human Rights of one and all.

Dr. Sunil Chopra , Ludhiana(India)

Really a beautiful, incisive and informative blog on the International Human Rights day by Dr. chopra. He deserves kudos for the same.

Rajesh Malhotra December 10, 2020 at 7:22 am

Thanks for raising this topic as on day today basis human rights are snubbed we should stand together to protect our rights.

Mohinder Desor December 10, 2020 at 6:31 am

As usual, Dr. Chopra has again highlighted another international day. Human rights, and protection thereof, gains greater significance now when people are becoming increasingly confined to narrow chambers of race, colour, religion, language, caste, and strangely enough even political beliefs. The rights of those holding divergent views are grossly trodden on.

There is a pressing need to recognise and respect human beings and their rights.

Dr.Sunil Chopra December 10, 2020 at 6:41 am

Dear Desor ji,
I am highly thankful to you for your valuable comments.Your viewpoint reflected in them is not only incisive but highly meaningful too.

Nupur Chopra December 10, 2020 at 7:55 am

Violation of human rights is a crime. Thankfully governments have realised it and there are laws for it. It’s appreciable that Dr Chopra has been taking up social issues to create awareness about these. A well written article. Sir, keep doing the good work.

Prof.Kamlesh Chopra December 10, 2020 at 8:51 am

On the eve of ‘The International Day of Human Rights’ your write up has touched many vital issues.Violation of these rights can have devastating effects.

Ashwani Kumar Malhotra December 10, 2020 at 10:06 am

A reminder for HUMAN RIGHTS ! What an apt way to remind the people of violatation of human rights of the human race and animals alike. Vioaltion of human rights and dignity on the basis of religion, caste and color is common everywhere in the World, particulary in third world countries and the developing world due to social prejudices and economic reasons. However the Human Right bodies are doing a yeoman service to uphold the rights and dignity of the downtrodde.

Akhil December 10, 2020 at 10:12 am

Very well said. Human rights are the basic foundation of a society

DR.SK Sharma Canada December 10, 2020 at 10:32 am

Great article written by Dr.Sunil Chopra about human rights, the main things is lack of education about our basic rights in our country people are unaware. Human rights is way above and beyond the approach of a common man and the middle man makes use of the situation for their benefit.
Awareness, education and right direction and approach must be taken care of so that one can use those rights.

Dr.Sunil Chopra December 10, 2020 at 10:40 am

Thank you Dr.A.Malhotra for your most relevant comments on the topic.

Dr.Sunil Chopra December 10, 2020 at 10:45 am

Dr.Sharma,you have incisively highlighted that illiteracy is the root cause of many problems.
Thanks for your overseas comments.

Dr pradeep aggarwal December 10, 2020 at 10:55 am

In india there is no values for humans life what is the use of celebrating HUMÀN RIGHTS DAY these types of days celebrating only to show international community that we values humanity

Dr Raj Kumar Bawa December 10, 2020 at 11:09 am

Well written article about human rights and these must be upheld for all.
All human rights bodies talk about human rights of terrorists, criminals but what about the rights of victims and security forces

Dr.Sunil Chopra December 10, 2020 at 11:12 am

Thank you Dr.Aggarwal.
You have rightly averred that in INDIA these days have little meaning.

Dr.Sunil Chopra December 10, 2020 at 11:20 am

Thank you Dr.Bawa for posting your views.It is true that nobody in India bothers about the real sufferers.

Dr Rajesh Saggar December 10, 2020 at 11:53 am

Really good article written by Dr Chopra.

CA. Sagar Gambhir December 10, 2020 at 1:56 pm

nisha bansal December 10, 2020 at 2:02 pm

Rightly said Dr Chopra ji
Let’s all pledge to protect human rights for one and all

Anil Sawhney December 11, 2020 at 2:44 am

Very well penned article by Dr. Chopra on Human Rights Day. There are so many organizations by different names cropped up through out the world but only few of them adhere to the real aim of protecting rights of the human.

Dr.Sunil Chopra December 11, 2020 at 6:39 am
