There is a difference between giving rights to humans and doing wrong to them. Sometimes, giving too many rights to someone may be a huge wrong to someone else. So, while maintaining human rights, you maybe violating human rights too.
We do this, don’t we?
I have serious doubts about humans ever reaching the position where they are able to exercise Complete justice.
A guy shoots a number of innocent people and he awaits trial and may just be sentenced to life imprisonment while families of killed may mourn and suffer. One wrong guy getting rights and a dozen right people being wronged.
What human rights?
Four guys publicly rape and torture an innocent girl in a bus. They have not been publicly hanged yet. What human rights is this?
We, I think, have gone overboard with our obsession for ‘human rights’. To the extent that we have started nurturing criminals and not punishing them. Punishments are set so that standards maybe set and society may be free of crime and so common folks would feel safe. Their human right.
Saudi Arabian authorities publicly execute killers and rapists. Result? Much safer than most of the so called ‘first world’ countries. Human beings cannot be fair law makers. But, God can be. Thus, the need for divine books. And divine books say public execution is a great way of maintaining safety of people.
A murderer may think a million times before killing anyone here. A murder happens every minute elsewhere.
What human rights?
And more than that, where is Real Justice?
Where is the public’s right to security when you give a murderer the right to live while he/she has already deprived someone from living?
A murderer should be executed publicly the day their crime is proven. This, I feel, is human rights given properly.
Do not violate human rights while ensuring human rights..Justice is the greatest human right!
