Human Rights Day
Every year on 10 December, Human Rights Day is observed to commemorate the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), which was adopted and proclaimed as the shared normative yardstick for the defense of human rights around the world by the United Nations General Assembly in 1948.
The Declaration acknowledges that the cornerstone of justice, equality and peace in the world is the natural dignity and equal and inalienable rights of mankind. It reaffirms the trust in the basic human rights of the citizens of the United Nations.
Why do people celebrate Human Rights Day?
Human rights are moral values or norms that specify certain human behavioral standards and are protected as natural and legal rights. In the sense of being the same for everyone, regardless of caste, creed, gender, or religion, they are egalitarian. Human Rights Day is observed every year to commemorate the United Nations General Assembly’s adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Vice President Venkaiah Naidu said in his message to the Human Rights Society.
Human Rights Day is observed by people around the world to promote true human rights. This day is celebrated with the intention of improving the physical and socio-cultural well-being and well-being of the susceptible community of people around the world. The following are a few reasons to celebrate this day:
- To raise consciousness among people around the globe about human rights.
- Emphasize the efforts of the United Nations General Assembly to advance comprehensive conditions for human rights.
- Interacting and celebrating in partnership to address and highlight important human rights issues.
- To allow disadvantaged groups of people to engage in this event, such as women, minorities, youth, the disabled, people with disabilities, and others.
And it’s a day to remind us how much we all have to do to uphold and preserve human rights. With thousands of people killed, wounded, or suffering from the effects of fighting, there are many violent conflicts going on around the world. Totalitarian regimes exist that restrict the human rights of people. Each day, more challenges arise.
To affirm our commitment to the Bill of Rights as enshrined in our Constitution, we celebrate Human Rights Day.
