Good morning to one and all present here. Today, I’ll be giving a small speech on the topic ‘human hights’.
United Nations defines human rights to be “rights inherent to all human beings, regardless of race, sex, nationality, ethnicity, language, religion, or any other status.” Human rights, simply put, are basic rights that are given to everyone without any sort of discrimination whatsoever.
In India, under Section 2 of the Protection of Human Rights Act, 1993, ‘human rights’ refers to “rights relating to life, liberty, equality, and dignity of an individual guaranteed under the Constitution or embodied in the International Covenants and enforceable by courts in India.”
There are 30 human rights laid down under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) by the United Nations, as signed in Paris on the 10th of December, 1948.
Some important human rights include the right to life and liberty, freedom from slavery and torture, freedom of opinion and expression, and the right to work and education.
