Maintain plurality of rationality: Moily

The Constitution of India is a conflict resolution document. The UPA government has framed a communal violence bill to protect the rights of the minorities as the State government watches the happenings passively. The bill is in its final stage, he added.

With inequality, a sense of alienation and deprivation will conceive. Even in the judiciary, several issues are sensationalized but no importance is given to human dignity. There is a need for judiciary to step out, he said.“Greed is the root cause of hatred, conflict and atrocities. There is a need to remove the seed of greed from the human psyche,” said Moliy.
“The greatest challenge for the Indian nation during the 21st century is to silence the enemies of human rights from every corner and usher in the welfare of all by proactive human rights based approach for development,” said State Human Rights Commission Chairman Dr Justice S R Nayak.

In India, there is an urgent need to consistently focus on the root causes of human rights violation both nationally and internationally and its specific political context, document and expose the growing role of intelligence agencies in the disinformation campaign and their penetration into the ranks of movements, including the human rights movement. There is a need to counter the argument that human rights must be sacrificed for national security and counter the systematic criminalisation of minorities as a whole.

There should be a systematic documentation of violation of human rights and the specific context in which it occurs, he said.St Agnes College Principal Dr Sr M Prem D’Souza AC presided over the programme. Symbiosis Law College (Pune) Director Dr Shashikala Gurpur delivered the keynote address. The two-day seminar has seven sessions.
