To deny people their human right is to challenge their very humanity.
Millions of people are living all over the world devoid of basic amenities, dignity and human rights. Human Rights are the rights that every individual has by virtue of being a human being, irrespective of their gender, caste,creed , religion, nation, location or economic status. On December 10, the world observes the Human Rights Day.
December 10 is the anniversary of the Universe Declaration of Human Rights, a historic document, adopted by the United Nations General Assembly at its third session on 10 December 1948 in Paris, France. It is milestone document that proclaimed the inalienable rights, which everyone is inherently entitled to as a human being, regardless of race, colour, religion,sex, language, political or other opinion, National or social origin, property , birth or other status. This document is available in more than 500 languages.
The Human Rights Day reminds us of the significance of equil dignity and worth of every person. We as responsible individuals, have to make a promise to ourselves to uphold the rights that protect us all and thereby promote the kinship of all human being.
