Digital Desk, New Delhi. Addressing the program, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, Hearty congratulations to all of you on the 28th Foundation Day of the National Human Rights Commission. This event is taking place today at a time when our country is celebrating the nectar festival of its independence. The great source of human rights inspiration for us, the values of human rights, is our movement for freedom, our history. We fought for our rights for centuries. As a nation, as a society, resisted injustice and atrocities. At a time when the whole world was engulfed in the violence of World War I, India suggested the path of ‘rights and non-violence’ to the whole world.
PM Modi said, not only the country but the whole world sees our Bapu as a symbol of human rights and human values. It is the good fortune of all of us that today through Amrit Mahotsav, we are taking a pledge to live up to those values and ideals of Mahatma Gandhi. I am satisfied that the National Human Rights Commission is giving strength, supporting these moral resolves of India. Even after independence, India has continuously given a new vision to the world on issues related to equality and human rights. In the last decades, many such opportunities have come before the world, when the world has been confused, lost. But India has always been committed to human rights, has been sensitive.
PM Modi said, today the country is running on the basic mantra of Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas and Sabka Prayas. In a way, this is the basic spirit of ensuring human rights.
