Maintaining that respecting human rights is a symbol of peace and development, Justice Rajendra Prasad has said that 'we should feel other's pain and suffering for the real protection of the human rights in the society.
HE WAS addressing a seminar organised on the eve of International Human Rights Day at IIBM hall in Patna, Bihar. "We should protect human rights for global peace and brotherhood. Be bold for the protection of your rights. You can not live alone in the society. You always need another people’s help for the survival in the society. Misuse of intellectual power is one of the major causes of the violation of human rights at the global level,” Mr Prasad, chief guest and member of the Bihar
Human Rights Commission said.
The one-day seminar was organized by a non-governmental organisaiton 'Manvadhikar Sanrakshan Pratishthan' and the topic of the seminar was 'Human rights: Challeges and possibillities'. This is the first organization of Bihar which is dedicated for the human rights protection and founded by ex-chief minister of Bihar Dr Jagannath Mishra.
“Right to live is our fundamental constitutional right. Violation of human rights is a global problem. It’s a matter of shame that the percentage of violation of human rights, women's rights and child rights are increasing at an alarming rate, not only in the cities of Bihar but also in the remote villages," Dr Mishra said.
He further said that poor and illiterate people are exploited by the landlords or rich people in the society. "They have no money for fighting justice from the court. Some NGOs, media and social activists are doing good jobs for the human rights protection in the society. It’s a good sign that mass awareness about the human, women and chid rights is increasing in the society,” added Dr Mishra, who is also founder chairman of Patna-based ‘Manvadhikar Sanrakshan Sashthan.
