Understanding Human Rights

All humans need to be treated with respect and dignity and have the right the stand up for themselves, this is the main crux of the concept of human rights. Human rights are a set of rights that every human is entitled to. These rights are very important for making sure that all humans get treated equally. Every human being is born with these rights no matter what caste, creed, gender, the economic status they belong to. They are in fact essential for a good standard of living in the world.

The first and foremost role of human rights is to safeguard the interests of the citizens of a country.  There are two types of human rights:

(a) Rights which are essential for the dignified and decent human existence, and

(b) Rights which are essential for adequate development of human personality.
