About Us
 
International Human Rights Organisation (IHRO) is a non-party, non-governmental organisation (NGO), with national focus and world-wide network. It agitates, both in India and internationally, for protection of peoples' rights irrespective of their caste, creed or political views. The voluntary organisation has a selective membership drawn from a variety of disciplines- Law, Journalism, Education, Medicine, Agriculture, Trade and Industry. Since its inception in 1985, the IHRO has been endeavouring to investigate and publicise violations of human rights in this part of the Indian subcontinent and abroad.

IHRO strives to bring together all those who cherish democratic values in all spheres of life-social, economic and political-and takes active steps to preserve, defend and strengthen democ¬racy. It also strives to educate public opinion by propagating rational and constructive views on human rights, dignity and freedom, and to promote the cause of unrepresented nations and peoples including their right to self-determination, with a hope that these efforts will minimise the political conflicts and establish peace.

IHRO works for structural changes to fulfil socio-economic and political aspirations of nationalities, ensuring protection of their ethnic, religious and cultural identities; seeks recognition of principles of universal brother-hood, socio-economic and political justice, and dignity of the individual; educates people about their rights by organising seminars and lobbies at world fora for the protection of theirs rights. It comprehends national and international problems in their depth, complexity and essence, and suggests peaceful solutions for their resolution. The IHRO creates liaison with national and international organisations with similar missions.

  • Tolerance and Fraternity
    Recognition of the principles of universal brother-hood, socio-economic and political justice, and dignity of the individual and rejection of racism, casteism, communalism and chauvinism.

  • Equality
    The right to equality and equal protection before law.

  • Rule of law and Democracy
    Promotion of rule of law, justice and democracy.

  • Independence of Judiciary and Press
    The independence and impartiality of the judiciary, freedom of the Press and other mass media.
