StateViolations

19/09/2016 The NCHRO  have issued a statement expressing serious concerns over the arrest and arbitrary detention of human rights activist , Khurram Parvez  as  Government continue to silence criticism of the state.

Khurram Parvez, 39, is a well-known activist, outspoken on a range of issues,  is the program coordinator for the Coalition of Civil Society Organisation. He was arrested from his home on 15-Sep-2016, Thursday, one day after he prevented from boarding a plane to the Geneva to attend the ongoing session of the United Nations Human Rights Commission (UNHRC).

The Indian Express reported that the authorities allowed Parvez's colleagues, Parvez Imroz and Kartik Murukutla, to travel to Geneva.  Sections 107 and 151 of the Code of Criminal Procedure allow the government to take a person into custody.

NCHRO condemns his arrest and calls for all charges against him to be dropped.  Freedom of opinion, expression, and assembly are basic rights protected by international treaties to which our country is party. The authorities to release the activist immediately, stop targeting government critics who seek to express dissenting views.

This arrest demonstrates a clear attempt to silence human rights advocacy and deter activists from exposing ongoing violations. NCHRO believes No peaceful activist should be facing prison particularly those who promote and protect human rights through peaceful and non-violent means.

NCHRO joins World in marking Day of Support for Torture Victims - "TORTURE IN ANY FORM IS A CRIME. PDF Print E-mail

altThis Year Theme: TORTURE IN ANY FORM IS A CRIME.  PREVENT TORTURE
26-June-2016, Sunday, New Delhi  :-
International community annually commemorates the United Nations International Day in Support of Victims of Torture. Every 26 June providing an opportunity for human rights defenders and survivors to speak out against the crime of torture and to remember and support victims and survivors of torture throughout the world.
The NCHRO on Sunday joined the worldwide observance of the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture. In India this year, the NCHRO have adopted the theme: ‘TORTURE IN ANY FORM IS A CRIME.  PREVENT TORTURE.”
The focus this year is on "PREVENT TORTURE" since Torture is flourishing because rather than respecting the law by refusing to tolerate torture, governments are either actively using torture, or turning a blind eye and lying about it to their own people and to the world. Torture is widely used  as a weapon against dissent, creating a climate of fear.
Although the scale of torture varies among states, a systemic culture of impunity in which perpetrators are rarely punished and justice for victims is elusive is common to all. Perpetrators tend to be powerful state actors including police, military, and security personnel. Leaders fail to condemn these horrific crimes. Judges and police lack the capacity—or the will—to pursue torturers. Victims are isolated and have no trusted, safe place to report torture. And those who pursue justice, accountability, and redress often face the threat of reprisals.
