Human rights in India: A post-facto assessment of post independent Era
Dr. Bina Rai
Many cultures and civilization have developed ideas about the intrinsic worth and dignity of individual human beings. However these theories were traditionally rooted in religious belief, meaning that the moral worth of the individual was grounded in divine authority, human beings usually being seen as creatures of God. The prototype for the modern idea of human rights was developed in early modern Europe in the form of ‘natural rights’. But when we look back in Indian history we find our literature have marked worship of nature and human beings from the ancient period. India happens to be one of the few countries in the world having a cheered history of human rights movement.
