Victims of Terrorism as the Examples of the Greatest Human Rights Violations in the Contemporary History
72 years have passed since the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a charter in the protection of human dignity and a milestone in the protection of human freedom, dignity and human rights. Until now, many efforts have been made to achieve the goals mentioned in this Declaration by the United Nations, governments, human rights activists, and anyone concerned with the prevention of human self-destruction.
Today, 72 years after the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on December 10, 1948, the international community is once again looking to the future with fear and hope; fear of war and crime, threats and terror; and the hope for a future in which the protection of human rights is not an excuse to achieve illegitimate aspirations, but a current reality in the world. Today the people of the world hope to have a world in which the world without terror is no longer a slogan and no human being fall victim to injustice, extravagance, racism, war, violence and terrorism.
World Human Rights Day is an opportunity to renew our covenant with human rights activists around the world and to express our condolences to the true defenders of human rights from Asia to Africa and from Europe to the United States, who sacrificed their lives and health and left home and were persistent on the foundations of the human rights and gave an objective guarantee of its stability.
Victims of terrorism are the greatest examples of human rights violations in contemporary history. The plight of a large number of victims in various aspects shows the depth of the tragedy, so that this case of crime against humanity is getting heavier every day with darker pages, to the point that it has shocked a world.
Although today the dominant powerful states by using the evil entity called the terrorist organization are not adhered to any human principles and are committed to destruction of all human achievements in the foundations of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. But we must know that, on the contrary, there are free human beings who cry out for the victims of war, oppression, violence and terror, and are persistent, sympathetic and united in achieving the humanitarian goals set out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The Association for Defending Victims of Terrorism, while renewing the treaty with the principles set forth in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, declares that the human rights of the victims of terrorism are the most important example of human rights violations in the world, demanding the special attention of the United Nations and the states as a common suffering.
