Workshop on Human Rights in Madhya Pradesh

11th and 12th September, 2006

Around forty eight people from areas all over the State like Morena, Bundelkhand, Rewa, Shahadol, Seoni, Sidhi Maharajpur, Gwalior ,etc, the chief guest, Mr. Ajay Khare, inaugurated the workshop and spoke generally on the meaning of human rights. He went on to elaborate it that though the nomenclature may have come to the knowledge of the masses quite recently but the fight for it has a history which is very old like the time when the tribal king of Buxur was slaughtered on some petty pretext with the government just being a mute observer to the whole fiasco. He further said that any struggle for respect or dignity or for that matter even distinctiveness is an agitation against the infringement of human rights.
