Panel Discussion Report 77: Human Right -You have rights no matter where you go

“Human rights are rights inherent to all human beings, whatever our nationality, place of residence, sex, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, language, or any other status. We are all equally entitled to our human rights without discrimination. These rights are all interrelated, interdependent and indivisible”.(United Nations Human Rights )

Civil Organization (2011) defines article 6 “You have rights no matter where you go” of fundamental human rights as “the rights of humans which are not constrained by border, and fundamental rights are recognized at anywhere and anytime before the law”.

We are entitled to make benefit from our rights at any place and at any time, only because of the fact that we were born as a human, free and equal in rights and dignity. Human rights know no state borders. As a person, we are entitled to those rights in relation with any other institution or an individual.

Human rights guaranteed by the Universal Declaration are universal in character and any person is entitled to those rights before the law of any country in the world. Being recognized as a person before the law in fact means to be recognized as an inviolable bearer of all the rights granted by the Universal Declaration.Human right is universal which means that where ever we go we are free to enjoy our rights but in reality the concept is different. Because there are certain factors that affect to implement article 6 of human rights.

The reality of human rights as such article #6 has seemingly undergone three main significant areas such as the recognition to the right, the contradictory to the right and the factors affecting the exercise of this right. Giving information about Fundamental rights is owed to persons as a matter of human dignity and should be honoured no matter where the persons go.

For instance some present examples in some countries’ rules and regulations can be taken. If rights are being recognised what are the advances that we might see in the future? Will this advancement ensure rights for education, employment entertainment, security, welfare and knowledge no matter where we go, travel and live?

We also shared information about the current situation of human rights in all parts of the world? We also discussed about the implication if the rights are not implemented in future. Some of the questions such as what are the effects we will face in future generation were also raised.

Then lastly we shared information about the factors that are affecting the implementation of the article #6 of human rights. The answer covered various aspects of cultures and tradition, government policy and geographical situation. Finally we finally shared about the roles of civil society play to protect these rights.

I shared my own experience when I first came here in Malaysia. During the presentation, I was able to handle my questions easily. I shared my own experience about the first incident when I landed here in Malaysia. While passing the immigration, the officer asked me that I did not resemble the person in the passport because I was not wearing a scarf although the passport clearly stated my religion. The person was concerned about my religious view. I replied him that in our country we have to show our ear for national or international identity photo. After that staff told me that miss, no matter wherever you go you can follow your religious. I was really impressed as he taught me that we need to concern about our basic human rights. Then I shared my other experiences that I’m getting advance as a foreigner staying in Malaysia, such as education, independent transportations, security and medication.

In my conclusion, everyone has the rights everywhere a person goes to before law. As a human we are entitled to make benefit of our rights at any place and at any time. In order to get advances from it, each and every one has to know what the basic human rights are.
