Today is World Human Rights Day. Every year on December 10, Human Rights Day is celebrated all over the world including Nepal.

The United Nations General Assembly issued the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on December 10, 1948, acknowledging the fact that commitment to human values, values, human civilization, and protection of human rights is a cornerstone of democratic order, sustainable peace, and development. To commemorate the day the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was issued, this day has been celebrated by the world community as an important day.

On the occasion of World Human Rights Day, Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba has expressed his best wishes to all Nepalis at home and abroad.

In his congratulatory message, Deuba said that Nepal has been expressing its commitment in the international forums to respect, protect and promote human rights since it became a member of the United Nations. In line with this commitment, Prime Minister Deuba has mentioned that the Constitution of Nepal has constitutionally guaranteed almost all the universally accepted human rights as fundamental rights.

He further added that since there is no such thing as a right without treatment, it is constitutionally guaranteed to get effective treatment from a competent and independent judiciary against human rights violations.

He noted that despite the challenging situation created by the Covid-19 epidemic, the government is making various efforts to protect the human rights of its citizens. He clarified that work is being done to provide free vaccination to all Nepali citizens by the end of this year.

Stating that the democratic system itself is a product of human rights, Prime Minister Deuba said that the guarantee of human rights and its uninterrupted enjoyment is possible only in a democratic system. World Human Rights Day
