In 1950, the U.N. invited all member States and interested organizations across the globe to observe 10th of December every year as World Human Rights Day. Last year, 2008, marked the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Though the situation in India has improved a lot since independence in 1947, a lot remains to be done. In its annual report on “The State of Human Rights in India 2008″ the Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) has pointed out, debated, and discussed how India has fared in some aspects of the civil and political rights such as right to fair trial without delay, rights concerning torture, bonded labor, and freedom of religion; economic, social and cultural rights like land rights, right to food, and rights against discrimination mostly the caste based discrimination, the internal security of the country, and equal status to women. The report points out that the apathy and incompetence of the law enforcement agencies at district, state, and national levels has been one of the main reasons for some of these violations still being prevalent in India.
