Human Rights Violation Mapped by US Based Group!!!

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is still far from reality. Individuals are tortured, abused, face unfair trials and are restricted in their freedom of expression in every part of the world. Recently, human rights abuse in Nigeria was exposed by a US-based group Human Rights Watch. Satellite images analysed by the group undermined Nigerian Army’s claim that it destroyed only 30 homes. In reality, around 2,300 homes were burned by the army.

The interactive map above, by the Fund for Peace & Foreign Policy, reveals widespread violation of human rights across the globe. The countries are coloured according to the level of violations; dark green represents least violations and dark red critical. Netherlands has reported least number of violations, whereas Myanmar/Burma has maximum number of violations.

It sis imperative to note here that record of US is also dubious in this regard.
