The concept of Human Rights holds great significance in our lives, especially in today’s time when the exploitation of human beings is increasing day by day.
However the human yearning for basic rights of all the individuals has been a fundamental aspect all through the course of human history. It is this understanding of the basic nature of human rights that we all need to be able to comprehend and realize its meaning, purpose and of course importance in the present times.
Human rights are universal in nature having a legal and moral framework, which aim towards safeguarding the interest of the people from rigorous legal, political and social abuses.
These rights have moral grounds and have found a place in law at both national as well as international levels. They are primarily addressed to the governments for their observance and enforcement
However, despite these clearly formulated set of human rights, multiple cases of human rights breach at different places of this world have been observed. (KNB)
