PM Modi says some see human rights violations in some incidents, not in others
Modi said, Selective behavior is dangerous to democracy and tarnishes the nation’s image. We must be careful of such politics.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Tuesday, that viewing human rights from a political lens is dangerous for democracy. PM Modi said at an event to mark the 28th Foundation Day of the National Human Rights Commission, Some people characterize human rights from their own perspective these days. They see human rights violations in some cases but not in other same cases. Union Home Minister Amit Shah and NHRC Chairperson and former Supreme Court judge Arun Mishra also spoke at an event.
Modi said, looking at human rights with an eye on political gains and loss harms these rights as well as democracy. Selective behavior is harmful to democracy and tarnishes the nation’s image. PM said in the past decades, there have been various instances when the world was misguided and lost its way, but India has always been committed to human rights.
