Casteism, Social Security and Violation of Human Rights

“Slavery does not merely mean a legalised form of subjection. It means a state of society in which some men are forced to accept from others the purposes which control their conduct.”-Dr.B.R.Ambedkar

The consciousness of social security comes to a man when he feels that he is getting his basic rights. Human Rights are related to those rights which are related to man’s life, freedom, equality and self-esteem, are established by Indian constitution or universal declaration of human rights and implemented by Indian judiciary system. In other words, “Human rights are rights inherent to all human beings, whatever our nationality, place of residence, sex, national or ethnic origin, color, religion, language, or any other status.” We are all equally entitled to our human rights without discrimination. But we when come the present conditions of Indian society, it is painful to say we find lots of discrimination and violations of human rights is a common problem.

Human Rights Defenders are working since then we have not the concept of human rights in our life. They are working on a range of issues including caste discrimination, domestic violence, social justice, women issues, child abuse and trade attack from both the state and other interests. But the problem is here to consider that those who are discussing or working on the Human Rights issues, are being tortured by the false cases and sometime they also murdered as we are continually receive these types of news from media.  Their social security, freedom also suppressed by the authorities. The government imposed increases administrative restrictions on human rights organizations. By all this the first step to fight for justice interrupted and the real conception of justice become only theoretical interpretation. It is a good point to consider that for a good society and for a just nation, we should think upon all these issues so that we can live in such a place where we can realise the sense of freedom, equality and brotherhood. For all this we need to think seriously upon caste issues, human rights, terrorism, child and women issues, only then we can have a fruitful outlook for social problems. Universal peace presupposes social justice, equality, fraternity and love for humanity. Unfortunately, human selfishness and ego overwhelm the human mind causing destructive and dangerous consequences to peaceful existence of humans.

We can say that have the option to choose a better world. Why not we think to work for our fellow beings and deal these issues with a rational systematic manner. It is a reality that India is going through a difficult time of regionalism, communalism, religious fundamentalism, caste prejudices and gender discrimination and these evils are deeply rooted in our society.
