Abstract

The position of man on earth is one, recognized even by the law of nature, which ensures survival or revolves around the struggle between survival and its irony. Man by nature is free, in modern political systems under the so called democratic principles and values, man is to live under protection of the law and his fundamental virtues respected in the society. The paper tries to look into the issue of human rights in contemporary global politics. With the help of library instrument, the paper finds out that, democratic and non-democratic states maintain such declarations on human rights, especially the one proclaimed by the UN general assembly, but on the other hand, states also abuse such fundamental rights of man. The paper concludes that, such rights are usually abused as a result of ethnicity, religious differences as well as political and economic reasons. The paper recommends absolute practice of the rule of law, strong retribution against aberration of such fundamental rights of man.
