Human Rights Day is celebrated annually across the world on 10 December every year.
December 10th marks World Human Rights Day, the anniversary of the signing of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights on Dec. 10, 1948.
Human Rights Day – the UN General Assembly proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a common standard for all peoples and all nations. The Declaration states that all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. It also set out, for the first time, fundamental human rights to be universally protected, covering all aspects of a human life – civil, cultural, economic, political and social.
Today, people across the globe, contribute their voices to support the World Human Rights Day with a goal to promote the awareness about fundamental human rights and its violations.
Human rights have been the center of many global discussions and topics, and remain a vital aspect of our global community. Now, the voices of medical students are being heard in their fights to stand for human rights. Now the medical student has an important role in human rights activism.
Protecting human rights for all is essential to maintaining international peace and is a core element of U.S. foreign policy. We as a nation must try to support the vital work of human rights defenders who tirelessly document abuses and hold governments accountable. On this Human Rights Day, we highlight some of the heroes we’ve met over the past year who are advancing human rights around the world.
We remember those who are suffering around the world and those who strive to make it a better place. Pakistan will strive hard to support human rights defenders and urge all nations to observe the principles of liberty, democracy, free expression, and equal protection under the law.
Chairman Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has called the world community to move forward and play their role in protecting rights of every human being.
In a message on the World Human Rights Day today, Bilawal Bhutto said that upholding human rights was the sole way this planet can have for the peace and prosperity.
Bilawal said that puppet rulers and the despotic regimes were posing serious threats to the protection of the human rights. He further said that societies infested with human inequalities and low respect to human rights and only democratic order can save these rights.
“Today the humanity is in core need of respect and recognition of their rights, which are being violated everywhere in the world, particularly in countries where the people are ruled over by authoritarians and or where the democracy is controlled,” he added.
Chairman PPP said that his Party has always promoted and protected the human rights and its struggle for the cause has no match among any other political parties in the country.
Bilawal Bhutto vowed that the PPP will continue to struggle for the basic human rights of every citizen without any discrimination and will vehemently condemn any violations in the country as well as the world over.
