Noida: All India meet was planned AIHRA- All India Human Rights Association on the World Human Rights Day on 10th December 2016 at Noida Film City. Members and office bearers from all the states of India were present on the occasion to talk about their success stories and contribution towards societyâ€™s upliftment.
â€œUpholding human rights is in the interest of all. Respect for human rights advances well-being for every individual, stability for every society, and harmony for our interconnected worldâ€ Rajiv Chandran read the message sent by United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
â€œHuman Rights Day is observed every year on 10 December. It commemorates the day on which, in 1948, the United Nations General Assembly adopted theÂ Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In 1950, the Assembly passed resolution 423 (V), inviting all States and interested organizations to observe 10 December of each year as Human Rights Day,â€ informed Rajiv Chandran of United Nations Information Centre.
â€œThis year, Human Rights Day calls on everyone to stand up for someoneâ€™s rights! Disrespect for basic human rights continues to be widespread in all parts of the globe. Extremist movements subject people to horrific violence. Messages of intolerance and hatred prey on our fears. Humane values are under attack,â€ said M.U.Dua President of AIHRA.
â€œThe time for this is now. â€œWe the peoplesâ€ can take a stand for rights. And together, we can take a stand for more humanity,â€ said Sandeep Marwah President of Marwah Studios who is chairing more than 100 voluntary organizations for the welfare of the community.
â€œIt starts with each of us. Step forward and defend the rights of a refugee or migrant, a person with disabilities, an LGBT person, a woman, a child, indigenous peoples, a minority group, or anyone else at risk of discrimination or violence,â€ added Marwah while receiving the award.
AIHRA-All India Human Rights Association honored the Global Cultural Minister Sandeep Marwah and Rajiv Chandran for their human activities. Sandeep Marwah also nominated Chief Patron to the organization.
