WHAT ARE HUMAN RIGHTS?
Human Rights are the basic rights and freedoms to which all humans are entitled. These are the fundamental rights which every person is entitled to simply by the fact of being human.
Human rights are the basic rights of each individual in any part of the globe irrespective of cast, creed, sex, age, colour, status. It encompasses all social economic political, cultural anti-elements based on law of nature with the aim of ensuring justice, freedom and equality viz. individual and collective existence.
Originally, people had rights only because of their membership in a group, such as a family. Then, in 539 BC, Cyrus the Great, after conquering the city of Babylon, freed all slaves to return home. Moreover, he declared people should choose their own religion. The idea of human rights spread quickly to India, Greece and eventually Rome. Then in 1215, The Magna Carta gave people new rights and made the king subject to the law. After nearly four centuries, in the year 1628, The Petition of Right set out the rights of the people. Later in 1776,
The United States Declaration of Independence proclaimed the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And just after that in 1789, The Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen, a document of France, stated that all citizens are equal under the law. Then in the year 1948, The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was the first document listing the 30 rights to which everyone is entitled.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which was adopted by the UN General Assembly on 10 December 1948, was the result of the experience of the Second World War. With the end of that war, and the creation of the United Nations, the international community vowed never again to allow atrocities like those of that conflict happen again. World leaders decided to complement the UN Charter with a road map to guarantee the rights of every individual everywhere.
