PM Modi Promises to Protect Human Rights of Indians
The Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the Silver Jubilee Foundation Day function of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) in New Delhi on Friday.
He said that in the last two and a half decades, NHRC has contributed to nation building, by becoming the voice of the deprived and the oppressed.
He said that the protection of human rights has been an important part of our culture. Modi added that after independence, elements such as an independent and impartial judiciary, an active media, an active civil society and organizations such as NHRC are in place to protect human rights.
The Prime Minister said that human rights should not be merely a slogan, but also a part of our ethos, adding that in the last four years or so, a lot of serious efforts have been made to improve the quality of life of the poor.
Modi said that the Government’s focus has been to ensure that all Indians have access to the basic needs of human beings. He said that the law which provides relief to Muslim women from triple talaq, is also part of this series of steps taken to ensure basic rights for people.
The Prime Minister mentioned steps taken to improve ease of access to justice, such as increasing the number of e-courts, and strengthening of the National Judicial Data Grid. He described Aadhaar as a technology-based empowerment initiative.
