Human rights for The Youth of Bangladesh

28 November 2015, Nirapad News: Human rights, it’s one of the buzzing word of this present world, A large number of people along with a large number of government, non-government and international organization working on this issue but the interesting news about it that more than 70% people actually don’t know what’s the definition of Human rights, even they don’t know what kinds of rights is covered by Human Rights. So the picture of the present world is look like “we are talking about its everyday but we don’t know what it is?”, In real world , actually it’s a big challenge to find out a short definition of human rights as its comes from an evolution from century to century, the modern view of human rights comes In Mid of the Nineteenth Century in the resolution of UNHRC,it includes the first Preamble sentence of the to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights “ Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.” It’s give a short but more effective definition of human rights although Article 1 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights more easily mention “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights” it’s called the human rights. But Universal Declaration of Human Rights conation many clauses to define it’slargely. But asa general person of a sovereign state if we just remember the Article 1 of Universal Declaration of Human Rights and 1st Preamble sentence of it, we may get a better and necessary knowledge of humanrights . On the other hand in the scenario of Bangladesh, we have about 160 Million people in a small 147570 square kilometers. It’s a big challenge for the government to ensure this right here as well as a large number of people of this country are illiterate, so they are totally ignorant about these rights. Another burning issue is that the number of youth across the world has reached a remarkable 1.8 billion out of 7.3 billion, and most of them live in developing countries like Bangladesh. We also need to remember that 47.6 million or 30 percent of the total 158.5 million people in Bangladesh are young (10-24 years), and it will be between 10 and 19 percent by 2050, according to statistic. According to the UNFPA report, Tens of millions do not go to school, or if they do, they miss even minimum benchmarks for learning, so how does Bangladesh challenge this scenario. If we deeply think about Bangladesh scenario, at present youth are the main victim of human rights violation in Bangladesh. Blogger or writer is killed here and all of these blogger are youth as well as human rights violation is going on garments work place where most of workers are youth. Another sector where human rights volition is going on is on the political activist, though in Bangladesh all adult aged group people are related with politics but when it’s a question of human rights volition by law enforcement force, Victims are youth. Interestingly more than 50% of law enforcement force in Bangladesh is youth and they also have the lack of knowledge of human rights. So they violate human rights on others and sometimes they also face the violation of human rights where they are the victim also. On account of these Bangladesh need to concern about it immediately. The future of this country depends on this youth. Only government can’t tackle this serious problem, other organization and community as well as layers and scholars need to spread the knowledge of human rights among the youth of Bangladesh. In the developing country like Bangladesh media plays a vital role to spread the knowledge among the people, Youth is one of the main or major spectators of these media so media also needs to come forward to help the youth of Bangladesh and spread the knowledge of human rights among the youth of Bangladesh. Only after that Bangladesh can make their youth wrathful and a wealthy as well as beautiful Bangladesh by them.
