IHRO for the first time in Pakistan has established the Parliamentarian Assembly for human rights. The aim of this initiative is to recognize the centrality of human rights and the need to incorporate them in all parliamentary activities. The Assembly members will try to ensure that parliamentary activities are undertaken to advance the full implementation of international human rights standards.
The Executive Committee of International Human Rights Observer (IHRO) has launched the "Peoples Movement for Human Rights" through print media, for the first time in Pakistan . Our organization is working to raise the different international issues of human rights. The aim of the movement is to mobilize the people of Pakistan so they take active part in understanding and securing their fundamental rights and freedoms.
In Pakistan the situation of human rights has not been very encouraging. The term "human rights is not new to the masses of Pakistan but neither have they had the resources nor the platform to secure their rights. IHRO has conceived the methodology of this campaign to ensure the maximum participation from all the segments of the society. The members of the movement will be involved in foreseeing monitoring and evaluating not only for their own human rights but also of the members of their communities and groups.
* To strengthen the existing infrastructure through community mobilization, so that human rights can effectively be monitored, violations recorded and the information shared and made public.
* To promote the culture of peace and equality.
* To create an atmosphere of stability and security through human rights.
The theme human rights for all is being implemented in letter and spirit in this movement. People are entitled to rights simply because they are human beings, irrespective of their citizenship, nationality, race, ethnicity, language, sex, or abilities. IHRO within a span of one week has received 100,000 letters, expression of interest and applications. The whole exercise is directed to develop a comprehensive directory of individuals interested to join us and then to coordinate their efforts at all levels. It will empower them to initiate a process of social change leading to peace, stability and equality.
