The Ministry of Human Rights (MOHR) is working exclusively on human rights district committees, which would start working for the welfare of people at grassroots level soon after their notification.
The ministry has asked the nomination from district administration to form committees and, so far, they have received representations from 65 districts, which would be notified after the finalisation of the names of respective districts’ public representatives, local government officials, officials of line departments—including police, social welfare, health departments, prison, district bar council—and press club representatives, civil society organisations, minorities, etc.
Each committee would have 12 to 15 members, an official of the ministry of human rights told the news agency, adding that the committees would work to create awareness on human rights issues among masses and ensure their fundamentals rights without any delay.
He further informed that names of public representatives have not been received so far which is the basic hindrance in establishing these committees.
He said the provision of basic rights to all without any discrimination is the top priority of the present government. On the directives of Human Rights Minister Kamran Micheal, they have taken this initiative, which would help redress grievances of people at their door steps.
