Human Rights

Human rights are the rights that a particular individual enjoys. All human beings are born free and they are entitled to enjoy equal dignity and rights. The human rights include freedom of speech, freedom of belief, freedom of the press, right to education, right to food, shelter, etc. One should have the independence to express his views and ideas without interruption from others. Again, we should have the freedom to stick to what we believe is correct. All individuals have the right to basic needs like food, education, etc. Each and every individual has the inherent characteristic of reason and conscience and they should put them into action when necessary. All individuals should act towards one another in the spirit of brotherhood. The idea of human rights suggests that “if the public discourse of peacetime global society can be said to have a common moral language, it is that of human rights.” Citizens of a country should enjoy full freedom and should have the right to go to another country and be back whenever he wishes. Again, all individuals have the right to be safe in his own country hence his protection should be ensured by the government. In over 110 countries National human rights institutions (NHRIs) have been set up to protect, promote or monitor human rights with jurisdiction in a given country. Moreover, individuals should make no distinctions among one another irrespective of race, color, sex, language, etc. Thus, everyone has the right to enjoy human rights and they should know how to preserve their own dignity.
