While addressing as the chief guest Ms. Nasima Begum said, there are many misconceptions among the people about human rights. As many people think, human rights are just a matter of disappearance and murder.
Not really that. She also said that our declaration of independence contains human rights.
Human rights have also been given priority in the constitution. Even then, the incidence of human rights violations in the society is increasing day by day. Child rape and juvenile gang crime have risen alarmingly.
We have to be vocal about these issues now. She commented. We will have to ensure Human Rights- the right of people to live with dignity, right to education, health, freedom of expression, she added
