As laid down by the United Nations there are 30 Articles pertaining to the definition of Human Rights. According to these Articles, it contains Human Rights to be considered innocent until proven guilty, and the right of freedom from discrimination and the right of free and fair trial.
Respect for Fundamental Human Rights
Globally speaking, the world has faced a lot of human discrimination collectively in the past years, and this Human Rights violation is still going on.
“All human beings, whatever their cultural or historical background, suffer when they are intimidated, imprisoned or tortured. The question of human rights is so fundamentally important that there should be 110 difference of views on this. We must therefore insist 011 a global consensus not only 011 the need to respect Human Rights worldwide but more importantly on the definition of these rights” (1).
“We need to think in global terms because the effects of one nation’s actions are felt far beyond its borders. The acceptance of universally binding standards of Human Rights as laid down in the Universal Declaration ol Human Rights and in the International Covenants of Human Rights is essential in today’s shrinking world.
Respect for fundamental Human Rights should not remain an ideal to be achieved but a requisite foundation for every human society.
When we demand the rights and freedoms we so cherish we should also be aware of our responsibilities. If we accept that others have an equal right to peace and happiness as ourselves do we not have a responsibility to help those in need? Respect for fundamental Human Rights is as important to the people of Africa and Asia as it is to those in Europe or the Americas” (1).
We are surrounded by continuous human condemnation around us. As simple as child labour or confiscation of women is also human abuse, the prisoners held in inhuman conditions without fair trial is also a human subjugation. For an innocent is innocent until proven guilty.
