International Human Rights Day

Yahya Reki
Human Rights Day is observed every year on 10 December. It commemorates the day on which, in 1948, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In 1950, the Assembly passed resolution inviting all States and interested organizations to observe 10 December of each year as Human Rights Day.
This year, Human Rights Day calls on everyone to stand up for someone’s rights, Disrespect for basic human rights continues to be wide-spread in all parts of the globe. Extremist movements subject people to horrific violence. Messages of intolerance and hatred prey on our fears. Humane values are under attack.
People of Balochistan are mostly deprived from all basic facilities of life.  Youth of different districts of Balochistan are facing a lot of problems in daily life. Especially there is lack of basic health facilities. People face a lot of hurdles in hospitals. There are no female surgeons and physicians in district headquarter hospitals. Females face a lot problems during pregnancy. It cause often death of mother and child. It needs to ensure basic health facilities in district headquarter hospitals.
Mr. Waheed Baloch student of BS geology at University of Balochistan told Balochistan Voices that Youth of Balochistan indulged in mentally illnesses due to the lack of job opportunities. It is badly violation of human rights. He further added that it is injustice with talented youth of Balochistan.
Mr. Baloch lamented that there is also lack of play grounds in far and flung areas of Balochistan which diverts the youth on wrong path.
People belonging from different field of life told the Balochistan Voices that now a days different slogans of political leaders causes hatred and divide people of Balochistan.  It is our duty to raise awareness and work hard to stop such thoughts in our society.
We must reaffirm our common humanity. Wherever we are, we can make a real difference. In the street, in school, at work, in public transport; in the voting booth, on social media.
