New Delhi: President Droupadi Murmu will participate in an event by the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on December 10 to commemorate the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).
Every year on December 10, Human Rights Day is observed to commemorate the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).
It was approved and proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly on this day in 1948 as a universally accepted value-based document of understanding the importance of the promotion and protection of human rights.
Human rights are the inalienable rights that every human being is entitled to from birth, irrespective of race, caste, creed, gender, language, political or other belief or any other status.
Human Rights Day Theme
The theme of Human Rights Day this year is ‘Dignity, Freedom, and Justice for All’ as it marks the entry of UDHR into the 75th year of its existence.
The event also represents a year-long campaign to promote and recognize it as the foundation for an expanding system of human rights protection for various sections of society amidst different challenges before humanity.
Since its inception on October 12th, 1993, under the Protection of Human Rights Act (PHRA), the NHRC, India has made significant contributions to the cause of human rights in the country, in line with the Constitution of India.
