HOPE should never go out from ones life
Human Rights --Future in Your Hand--

Human rights are rights and freedom to which all humans are entitled.
Pakistan's human rights record has dramatically improved since the reforms that took place after the tenure of President Zia-ul-Haq in 1988. The situation of human rights in Pakistan is a complex one, as a result of the country's diversity, large population, its status as a developing country and a sovereign, Islamic republic as well as an Islamic democracy with a mixture of both Islamic and colonial secular laws. The Constitution of Pakistan provides for fundamental rights, which include freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of the press and the right to bear arms. These clauses are generally respected in practice. Clauses also provide for separation of executive and judiciary, an independent judiciary and freedom of movement within the country and abroad.

The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, or HRCP, is an independent, non-profit organization, founded in 1987, which is not associated or affiliated with the government or any political party. It is committed to act with impartiality and objectivity in all matters. Among its main aims are spreading awareness of human rights among the people, mobilising public opinion, collecting information and disseminating knowledge about human rights abuses, and to monitor and defend human rights in Pakistan.

This is very unfortunate, despite of having laws and commissions concerning human rights, still large numbers of people are deprived of their basic rights. Violations of rights are clearly visible and multiple factors are responsible for it. Following are the factors for the uncertainty prevailing in the country due to the violation of human rights at a large level.

Violence in Pakistan and the Taliban conflict with the government have heightened humanitarian problems in Pakistan.

Enforced disappearances (missing persons)
Political abuse of human rights.
Controversial blasphemy laws.
Violation of minority rights.
Unawareness of Human rights by individuals.

It is enormously vital to take steps in order to implement laws that come under human right acts. Also new methods should be adopted by HRCP to check the violation of rights.
