Human rights violation is one of the most grievous problems of today’s modern and so-called civilized society. Every year so many innocent people have to be a victim of human rights violations throughout the world. The system of the law enforcing agencies tries to shelter and safeguard these rights to the maximum extent but sometimes the situation becomes very painful when these agencies themselves prove a fatal weapon against these rights. Recently the Asian Human Rights Commission has released a report with the title, ‘Law Enforcement Agencies of India involved in Human Rights violations.” According to the details discussed in the report, from April 2001 to March 2009, the National Human Rights Commission of India NHRC has recorded 1184 deaths in police custody.

I was lucky enough to have been offered an invite to the event and come out significantly more edified that I had gone in.Read More »World class cities- Ahmad Rafay Alam

نومبر 14, 2009 کو دنیا میں ذیابیطیس کی آگاہی کا دن منایا جارہا ہے۔

صرف پاکستان میں ایک محتاط اندازہ کے مطابق 80,000 افراد سالانہ اس مرض کی پیچیدگیوں کی وجہ سے انتقال کرجاتے ہیں۔ اور اس کا بنیادی سبب اس مرض کے بارے میں معلومات کی کمی ہے۔

ذیابیطیس جو عام طور پر پہلے صرف بڑی عمر میں لاحق ہوتا تھا، اب زندگی کی سہولیات اور آسانیاں بڑھ جانے ، تیز رفتار چربیلے کھانوں، اور جسمانی زور و مشقوں کی کمی کی وجہ سے جوانوں اور بچوں تک کو لاحق ہورہا ہے۔
