NHRC Foundation Day: Some people try to dent country's image in name of human rights- PM Modi
Freedom struggle, our history big source of inspiration and values for human rights said PM Modi.
New Delhi: Today (October 12) 28th National Human Rights Commission Foundation Day is being celebrated across the country. On this occasion, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also addressed the people through video conference. He said that there have been many occasions when the world has wandered but India has always put human rights first.
National Human Rights Day:
He said that it is the good fortune of all of us that today through the Amrit Mahotsav, we are taking a pledge to live up to the values and ideals of Mahatma Gandhi. I am satisfied that the National Human Rights Commission is giving strength, supporting these moral resolves of India.
PM Modi also targeted the opposition during his address. He said that human rights are severely violated when they are viewed with a political color, seen through a political lens, weighed with the scales of political profit and loss. Such selective behavior is equally harmful to democracy.
Our history is biggest source of inspiration: PM Modi
PM Modi said that in recent years some people have started interpreting human rights in their own way, looking at their own interests. In the same type of incident, some people see the violation of human rights and in another similar incident, the same people do not see the violation of human rights.
PM Modi said that we fought for our rights for centuries. As a nation, as a society, resisted injustice and atrocities. At a time when the whole world was engulfed in the violence of World War I, India suggested the path of 'rights and non-violence' to the whole world.
Some people try to dent country's image in name of human rights, we need to be alert about it says PM Modi. Freedom struggle, our history big source of inspiration and values for human rights: PM Modi at NHRC foundation day.
