Singer Soumita Saha, who has been at the forefront in the fight against society evils has a message for everyone on World Human Rights Day. She urges everyone to stand up for their own rights and those of others. According to her, Human Rights empower us all. These propagate Equality, Justice and Freedom, prevent violence and sustain peace. Our shared humanity is rooted in these universal values.

“Without Human Rights, the civilization wouild cease to exist. Whenever and wherever humanity’s values are abandoned, we all are at greater risk”, says the singer, who had made International debut with song Ishq in February this year.

For last 1 week, Soumita has been raising this awareness about Human Rights through video messages, social media campaigns and various other fora.

“It is our duty to educate everyone about Human Rights. Humanity finds meaningful execution only when you introduce people to Human Rights. If you want to be today’s ‘lady with the lamp’, try teaching people the right usage of Human Rights”, added the songbird.

This day, December 10, is observed every year as Human Rights Day to commemorate the adoption of Universal Declaration of Human Rights on 10 December 1948. The principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights laid the foundations for the promotion, protection and fulfilment of human rights worldwide.

“We often witness Human Rights Violations around us. Sometimes these violations are so deeply embedded in the society that we fail to recognize them. I urge everyone to stand up for the Human Rights and raise voice against violations, no matter how trivial they are”, she added.

“We should also organize ourselves together to publicly lobby for a better leadership, better laws and greater respect for human dignity in the society. Wherever we are, we can make a real difference. In the street, in school, at work, in public transport; in the voting booth, on social media, at home and on the sports field”, she further added.
