Jagran Bureau, New Delhi. Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday launched a scathing attack on the selective interpretation of human rights, saying that in recent years some people have started interpreting human rights in their own way and in their own interests. In one incident some people see human rights violations and similarly in another incident these same people do not see human rights violations. This type of mentality also causes great damage to human rights. The Prime Minister said that human rights are severely violated when they are viewed with political color and prism and weighed with the scales of political gains and losses. Such selective behavior is equally harmful to democracy. With such behavior some people also try to damage the image of the country in the name of human rights violation. The country has to be careful with such people.
Needless to say that this attack of the Prime Minister was on those parties and organizations which often give importance to the incident of one state and keep silence on the incident of another state. The Prime Minister said this while participating in the 28th Foundation Day program of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) through video conferencing. He said that today the country is following the basic mantra of Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas and Sabka Prayas. This is in a way the basic spirit of ensuring human rights. The benefits of every scheme should reach everyone, we are working towards this goal. This campaign is to ensure the rights of the person standing in the last row who does not know that it is his right. He does not go anywhere to complain, does not go to any commission.
The Prime Minister said that now the government is going to the homes of the poor and connecting them with facilities. In order to reach the rights recorded in the paper to the poor, it is necessary to fulfill their needs first. When a toilet is built in the house of the poor, electricity reaches his house, he gets a gas connection, then it is not just a scheme reaching him, but it is fulfilling his needs, making him aware of the rights, aspirations in him. Waking up The facilities provided to the poor are bringing dignity to his life.
The Prime Minister referred to the schemes and legal provisions brought to empower the poor, women and the differently-abled. Referring to the measures taken in the interest of the farmers, he said that today the farmer of the country is not compelled to take loan from any third person, he has the power of Kisan Samman Nidhi, there is crop insurance scheme, there are policies to connect them with the market.
The Prime Minister said that when it comes to human rights, individual rights are central to it. It should also be because society is formed from the individual and nation is formed from the society. Rights and Duties are the two tracks on which the journey of human development and human dignity proceeds. Therefore, every Indian should be aware of his rights and perform his duties equally seriously. You have to keep motivating for this.
