Minority Rights Under the New Constitution - Participatory Constitution Building in Nepal Booklet Series No. 7 English
Abstract:
Minority rights are the normal individual rights as applied to members of racial, ethnic, class, religious, linguistic or gender and sexual minorities; and also the collective rights accorded to minority groups. Individual rights belong to you simply because you are a human being. For example, every human being has the right not to be made a slave, not to be tortured, to own property, to marry and have a family and to have an education. It is not necessary to be part of any particular group to have these rights. Individual rights are identified in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. After many terrible tragedies experienced all over the world in World War II, including in Asia, this very important declaration was adopted by the United Nations in 1948 as one of its very first acts. The Constituent Assembly is mandated to draft a constitution that will create a secular, democratic, federal Nepal committed to social inclusion.This will create an opportunity for the CA to go beyond words and establish institutions and mechanisms that will ensure that all of Nepal’s religious,linguistic communities, caste groups and women are treated equally, have equal recognition and access Minority Rights Under the New Constitution to opportunities in Nepal. Several measures can be taken to ensure equal protection under the constitution: 1. Federalism 2. Electoral System 3. Constitutional Provisions #HumanRights #UDHR

Minority Rights Under the New Constitution - Participatory Constitution Building in Nepal Booklet Series No. 7 English
Abstract:
The whole idea of a right is that it is automatic. It is something that you should not have to fight for. It belongs to you and cannot be taken from you. Individual rights belong to you simply because you are a human being. For example, every human being has the right not to be made a slave, not to be tortured, to own property, to marry and have a family and to have an education. It is not necessary to be part of any particular group to have these rights. Everyone has them. Individual rights are identified in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. After many terrible tragedies experienced all over the world in World War II, including in Asia, this very important declaration was adopted by the United Nations in 1948 as one of its very first acts. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights says that the rights it recognizes belong to everyone. These individual rights cannot be taken from you or denied to you because of your race, your colour, your sex or your language. It does not matter what religion you practice, what political beliefs you hold, where you were born or what social status you have. It does not matter that you are a member of a minority group. Your rights belong to you, and the law does not permit anyone to take them away from you. At the end of this booklet is a full list of these rights that you possess because you are a human being.
