From Our Member MASUM, India – Annual Human Rights Report 2016
16 January 2017 2:47 pm
FORUM-ASIA’s member Banglar Manabadhikar Suraksha Mancha (MASUM) published its 2016 Annual Report, focusing on the main human rights challenges and issues addressed, as well as the key activities undertaken by the organisation over the course of 2016.
‘Human rights are inherent, inalienable, interdependent, and indivisible, meaning they cannot be granted or taken away by none; the rights include civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights. Human rights protagonist group like MASUM is constantly
monitoring the attacks and infringement over these rights. Like any other years, the previous one; 2016 was also witnessed blatant attacks on rights of the people, dissents and general ethos of human rights. The year was marred by curbing of democratic space of the society by state and non- state actors; the year experienced the diminishing legroom for protests and differences’.
