Human Rights Was a Slogan Only
Think and Say
West is prey to double standards as far as human rights are concerned. The noble cause of protecting human rights has been misused by the West and America as a tool of propaganda. They often blame their opponents China and Russia as the greatest violators of human rights. In the same way they have been blackmailing the Muslim states in the name of human rights. They misuse the UNO by misleading and misguiding the world organization. The double standards in this way have caused a great damage to this aspect.
The definition of human rights is although controversial yet it has been framed as: Human rights are moral values or standard which illustrate certain principles of human behavior. These moral values are regularly protected as legal rights in metropolitan and international law. They are commonly understood as unchallengeablebasic rights "to which a person is essentially entitled. These are bestowed upon a person simply because she or he is a human being. These are "inherent in all human beingsregardless of their nation, location, language, religion, ethnic origin or any other status. They are applicable everywhere and at every time in the sense of being universal.
The right to a fair trial, protection against enslavement, prohibition of genocide, free speech, or a right to education are only implemented for the Western citizens not for the whole world.
The doctrine of human rights has been highly powerful within international law, global and regional institutions. Actions by states and non-governmental organizations form a basis of public policy worldwide. The precise meaning of the term right is controversial and is the subject of continued philosophical debate while there is consensus that human rights encompasses a wide variety of rightssuch as the right to a fair trial, protection against enslavement, prohibition of genocide, free speech, or a right to education, there is disagreement about which of these particular rights should be included within the general framework of human rights some thinkers suggest that human rights should be a minimum requirement to avoid the worst-case abuses, while others see it as a higher standard.
They are equal in the sense of being the same for everyone. They require understanding and the rule of law and enforce an obligation on persons to respect the human rights of others.
Freedom from illegal detention, torture, and the death sentence
They should not be taken away except as a result of appropriate process based on specific circumstances;for example, human rights may include freedom from illegal detention, torture, and the death sentence.
But what about Guantanamo bay?
The Guantanamo Bay detention camp is a United States military prison located within Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, also referred to as Guantanamo or GTMO(pronounced 'gitmo'), which fronts on Guantánamo Bay in Cuba. Due to the facts that the inmates are detained indefinitely without trial and several inmates were severely tortured this camp is considered as a major breach of human rights by great parts of the world.The camp was established by the Bush administration in 2002. His successor, President Barack Obama, promised its closure during his first campaign in 2008, but it remains open.
The concept of modern human rights arguments emerged over the latter half of the twentieth century, possibly as a reaction to slavery, torture, genocide, and war crimes,as a realization of inherent human vulnerability and as being a precondition for the possibility of a just society.
The recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.
There are double standards in this field too. The Western nations raise a huge hue and cry if one of their citizens is killed abroad or in their country but connive at the hundreds of deaths in drone attacks. They themselves try to enslave the poor nations by economic exploitation and military power yet enchant slogans against slavery. They like death sentence for all al Qaida Taliban and ISIS persons but declare amnesty for Raymond who openly killed Pakistanis in broad day light. They claim freedom of speech for themselves when they are yelling against the Muslims or their opponents but make their journalist quiet who embraces Islam and writes a book on her Conversion. They misbehave with the people like Muhammad Ali the boxing champion due to his black colour and creed but express concern over the slight punishment inflicted upon a foreign Christian due to his or her fault. The world biggest democracies America and India looked towards another side when atrocities are committed by Israelis or Indian forces but blame Pakistan for spreading terrorism. They bolster Afghanistan which is the terrorist producing factory to invade Pakistan yet blame lies on Pakistani that they back Haqqani group.
Look at the causalities below and think about the ethnic duplicity of the champions of human rights.
Estimates of deaths in the Syrian Civil War, per opposition activist groups, vary between 301,781 and 470,000. On 23 April 2016, the United Nations and Arab League Envoy to Syria put out an estimate of 400,000 that had died in the war. UNICEF reported that over 500 children had been killed by early February 2012. Another 400 children
CNN reported on 8 April that almost 10,160,000 Yemeni were deprived of water, food, and electricity as a result of the conflict. The report also added per sources from UNICEF officials in Yemen that within 15 days, some 100,000 people across the country were dislocated, while Oxfam said that more than 10 million Yemenis did not have enough food to eat, in addition to 850,000 half-starved children. Over 13 million civilians were without access to clean water over 10,000 people have been killed in Yemen, reported in August 2015 that a total of almost 100,000 people fled Yemen,
Various scientific surveys of Iraqi deaths resulting from the first four years of the Iraq War estimated that between 151,000 and over one million Iraqis died as a result of conflict during this time. A later study, published in 2011, estimated that approximately 500,000 Iraqis had died as a result of the conflict since the invasion. Counts of deaths reported in newspapers collated by projects like the Iraq Body Count project found 174,000 Iraqis reported killed between 2003 and 2013, with between 112,000-123,000 of those killed being civilian noncombatants.
For troops in the U.S.-led multinational coalition, the death toll is carefully tracked and updated daily, and the names and photographs of those killed in action as well as in accidents have been published widely. A total of 4,491 U.S. service members were killed in Iraq between 2003 and 2014. Regarding the Iraqis (see Tables section below), however, information on both military and civilian casualties is both less precise and less consistent. Estimates of casualty levels are available from reporters on the scene, from officials of involved organizations, and from groups that summarize information on incidents reported in the news media.
During the war in Afghanistan (2001–14), over 26,000 civilian deaths due to war-related violence have been documented; 29,900 civilians have been wounded. Over 91,000 Afghans, including civilians, soldiers and militants, are recorded to have been killed in the conflict, and the numbers who have died through indirect causes related to the war may include an additional 360,000 people. These numbers do not include those who have died in Pakistan.
Palestine, Egypt, Kashmir, Libya, Tunisia, Nigeria, Sudan, Somalia Bosnia Myanmar and many other Muslim countries come in this category where Western influence has become a cause of civil strife and thousands of causalities have occurred due to their double standards.
