Mysuru: Human dignity is an integral part of Human Rights where every citizen not only has the right to live with freedom but with dignity too, opined District and Sessions Judge PGM Patil.
Judge PGM Patil was speaking after Inaugurating “Human Rights Day” celebrations jointly organised by the District Legal Service Authority, district administration, Advocates’ Union and Human Rights Activists’ Union.
During World War 2, thousands were killed in a merciless manner and the United Nations recognised those violations of Human Rights that time. Every year, since 1948, Human Rights Day is being observed on December 10, Justice Patil said.
“Though people have the right to live they need to have adequate food, water, shelter and employment to lead a life of dignity”, opined Patil and added, “In recent times there are innumerable cases of gross violation of Human Rights”.
Keeping the violations in mind the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) was established in the year 1993, Justice Patil stated.
The deprived classes in society, mainly the illiterate , poor and people belonging to backward communities are not aware of Human Rights to this day and their innocence has been widely exploited, Patil recounted.
Justice Patil gave a call to create awareness on issues related to slavery, abuse of women and child trafficking in order to eliminate the evils that plague the society.
