Some see human rights violations in certain incidents, not in others: Modi

Oct 12, 2021 15:43 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday slammed those who he said engaged in 'selective interpretation' of human rights and looked at its violation with an eye on political loss and gains.

Speaking at the 28th foundation day of the National Human Rights Commission, Modi said similar incidents are seen differently by some people as they describe human rights keeping their own interests in mind.

He said some even try to dent the country's image in the name of human rights violation, and people should beware of them.

Though Modi did not name any person or organisation, the ruling BJP has been critical of a section of human rights groups, including those with a global presence, for allegedly highlighting cases of HR violations selectively and in a one-sided manner to target the government.

In his speech, the prime minister cited a number of measures taken by his government to deliver basic needs like toilets, cooking gas, electricity and homes to the poor and said this give rise to their aspirations and make them more aware of their rights.

He said by making a law against 'triple talaq', his government has bestowed new rights on Muslim women.

The prime minister also spoke of the measures like 26-week maternity leave and more stringent law for rape to highlight his dispensation's empowerment of women.
