Trade warsspies poisoneda new Mao Zedong back in power in China, Russian meddling in foreign elections and a threat of nuclear war: The threat of terrorism has been replaced with an even greater fear: Terrorism was never the scourge of our age: Nations talk less about disarmament — now they boast of their nuclear capacity and are ramping up to use it.
Human right to live and exist, the right to equality, including equality before law, non-discrimination on grounds of religion, race, caste, sex or place of birth, and equality of opportunity in matters of employment, the right to freedom of speech and expression, assembly, association, movement, residence, the right to practice any profession or occupation, the right against exploitation, prohibiting all forms of forced labour, child labour and trafficking in human beings, the right to freedom of conscience, practice and propagation of religion and the right to legal remedies for enforcement of the above are basic human rights.
These rights and freedoms are the very foundations of democracy. Obviously, in a democracy the maximum number of the freedoms and the rights are enjoyed by the people.
Human rights are a benchmark of a developed and civilized society.
But rights cannot exist in a vacuum. They have their corresponding duties.
Rights and duties are the two aspects of the same coin. Liberty never means license.
Rights pre-suppose a rule of law, where each and everyone in the society follow a code of conduct and behaviour for the good of all. It is the sense of duty and tolerance that gives meaning to rights.
Rights have their basis in the principle of live and let live.
For example, my right to speech and expression involves my duty to allow others to enjoy the same freedom of speech and expression. Rights and duties are inextricably interlinked and interdependent.
A perfect balance is to be maintained between the two. Whenever there is imbalance, there is chaos. A sense of tolerance, propriety and adjustment is a must for enjoyment of rights and freedom.
Human life sans basic freedom and rights is meaningless. Freedom is the most precious possession without which life would become intolerable, a mere abject and slavish existence.
In this context the famous and oft-quoted lines of Milton from his Paradise Lost come to mind: But then liberty cannot survive without its corresponding obligations and duties. An individual is a part of society in which he enjoys certain rights and freedom only because of fulfillment of certain duties and obligations towards others.
A fine balance is to be maintained between the two or there will be anarchy and bloodshed. The human rights can best be preserved and protected in a society steeped in morality, discipline and social order.
