National Human Right Commission (NHRC)

The National Human Right Commission of India is an autonomous public body which was constituted on the 12th of October in the year 1993 with a sole motive of protecting people’s human rights.

The NHRC has always been in news doing some act of goodness or the other.

For instance, sometime ago, they made the headlines for protecting the rights of a terrorist in Kashmir who was responsible for the death of many people in the region and would have resulted in many more people losing their lives in the future. The terrorist was caught by the Indian army and tied to the jeep and dragged across the town. The honorary NHRC came up saying the act done by the army was “Inhuman“.

All I want to know is, how is punishing someone who would have resulted in the death of thousands or even millions, Inhuman? Was his killing everyone and being a bad influence to children around quite Humane? NHRC just got no logic or reasoning capability it seems. 

And now NHRC is up with another stupid issue at their disposal. The burning of paddy stubble that is adding up to the pollution in the regions of Punjab, Haryana and the national capital Delhi, seems to be fine with the NHRC.  NHRC came up fighting against the ban being imposed on the burning of paddy stubble, saying that first their should be a way found out to deal with the paddy and then the ban should be imposed. I mean, is it really more important to waste more days to find a way to deal with it and in the meanwhile risk lives of millions just for burning of paddy which doesn’t even make any profit to anyone and is as useless as the NHRC itself.

All I want to know is, where was this same NHRC when one girl Gurmehar Kaur started a campaign agaisnt the violence that exists in University Politics and was fighting all alone. Where was this same NHRC when that girl was called characterless, or was targeted by every single news channel and person going to the next level, each one of them trying to prove her relation with a Pakistani or any terrorist group. The same NHRC was lost in the darkness of anonymity at that time.

What do you think? Is NHRC really an association fighting for the rights of people and helping them protect their rights in the correct way? Does being the first and biggest human right protection NGO give NHRC the right to do any damn thing they want?

These are just a few questions I have. Maybe you have a few questions too. Ask them in the comments or as it may please you. But please do.

we have the same problem in the Philippines…our president Rodrigo Duterte is doing his best to eradicate crimes related to drug,…but the human rights advocates view his acts as inhuman as for them, the criminals have the right to life, too!….what about the life wasted as a result of their acts?…

    Exactly. That is the stupidity of these Human Right protectors. They are even more worse than human right violators. They don’t know what they are doing.

    You know perfectly well that there is no comparison with Duterte. I was in the Philippines recently and have been before. Duterte is a sickening criminal far worse than the majority of those murdered at his command. Duterte and his gang of thugs have readily acknowledged that several non-violent drug addicts have been killed in their pogroms.

The American Civil Liberties Union is often criticized on the same grounds. Human rights are always in conflict. As a great man once said, “Your liberty to swing your arm ends where my nose begins.” No one would claim that terrorists have the right to take the lives of others. But the way we treat terrorists is a reflection on our own humanity. Errors can be made in the heat of the moment. It is why the judicial system was created. A man mistakenly lynched for being a “terrorist” cannot be given his life again.

    What if the terrorist was caught red handed and then saved from punishment just because it was against the human rights? Isn’t saving that terrorist against the humanity? And judiciary? I hope you know that I am talking about the Indian NHRC and the country in context is India. We boast of our useless judiciary throughout the universe.

While various organizations and movements can serve a positive role too
often they become more about self perpetuation and hustling a buck.
Directions are taken not on the basis of consensus or input but rather
a handful who have assumed “leadership” roles.
The American Indian Movement is one such entity.

    All these organizations, after a certain period of time, forget that they are liable to work for the masses and start to think for their own good. Hence, forgetting their real agenda in the process.

You have raised up some social issues that needs careful discernment. Yes, the commission is a bucking bronco, Anand Bose from Kerala

    How I wish people understood this as easily as you did. Thank you for putting in your agreement.

You may not be aware, but in the United States concerns like those expressed here gave rise to the Crime Victims’ Rights Movement in the 1970s. You can find out more at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victims%27_rights.

    All I know is, this needs to stop. These organizations need to stop acting like another criminal group.

Excellent read, I enjoyed the article so I am going to reblog it for you.

    Sadah · November 25, 2017 at 3:10 pm

    Thank you so much.

I am not from India, but the problem you raise is by no means restricted to the Indian sub-continent. There are quasi-official bodies all over the world which purport to stand up for rights and justice, but are in fact simply vassals of certain political groups – another way for them to put pressure on government. Sad, but true. Anyway, thank you for visiting and for following my blog. I am not always political but favour the short story medium. Very undisciplined!

    Sadah · November 25, 2017 at 6:09 pm

    I know that this is not just an Indian sub-continent problem. But someone needs to come up. People need to fight it out. Isn’t it?

Growing up i thought such organisations exist to help us but recently i observed most of the time they drag cases into limelight for thier own publicity.
Its a very sad situation.

    Sadah · November 30, 2017 at 8:55 am

    Even I thought the same.
