“We have conferred dignity on the children of Adam, and borne them over land and sea, and provided for them sustenance out of the good things of life, and favoured them far above most of Our creation” (Al-Isra’: 70)
Since 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) has proclaimed the equal and inalienable rights for all, an expression of human dignity, a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations, and the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world. Unfortunately, the promised human rights have remained unattainable to various segments of the global human population due to the continuous security threats of war, civil-political unrest, growing poverty and socio-economic injustice, and all kinds of racial, religious and gender-based discrimination.
