Human Rights

Even after 60 years of independence the government has failed to provide equality, justice and security to the minorities, dalits and tribals.
 
The law and order machinery under the garb of checking extremism, terrorism and Maoism targets Minorities, Tribals and dalits by taking them into illegal custody and keeping them in jail without bail or trial and even killing them in fake encounters.
 
The Muslim youths arrested in the fake terrorism cases are denied legal defense by various bar councils in India and even none of the political parties took an open and principled stand against this injustice. Draconian laws are implemented only to be used as weapons by the Police against the innocent civilians.
 
NWF has been very vocal against these violations of human rights in the country. NWF has taken up various issues related to human rights and also conducted human rights and legal awareness programmes in various states.
