Dr. Atul Kumar Singh and Dr. Ashish Kumar LalAbstract:
Human rights are the vital opportunities for human life, rights, equality and a dignified life. Human rights are the birthright of human beings. Rights can never be taken away from anyone. On December 10, 1948, the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It has identified basic human rights. For this reason, December 10 is celebrated as the International Human Rights Day. Human rights are a set of statutory laws or rules that define the conduct and special features of the members of the human race and which are protected by a set of local and international laws that are an integral part of fundamental rights. In this, a person will enjoy the relevant rights because he is a human being by birth. In other words, all human rights recognized by the state constitution are called human rights, meaning that “all people are born free and have equal dignity and rights.” The right to food is essentially a human right. In a word, the right to food is essential for the fulfillment of other human rights. It cannot be compared to any gift or favor. It is associated with the assurance that all people will be able to afford their own food with dignity. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1947) recognizes the right to food as a human right. Article 25 (1) of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that everyone has the right to food, clothing, shelter, medical and essential social services and the right to security of person and family in the event of unemployment, illness, disability, widowhood, old age or inability to earn a living. There is a right to a decent standard of living for welfare and good health.Pages: 35-37 | Views: 60 | Downloads: 6Download Full Article: Click Here
