Human Rights is a term used to describe the basic rights available to each and every individual for having a dignified life. According to the United Nations, "Human Rights are rights inherent to all human beings, regardless of race, sex, nationality, ethnicity, language, religion, or any other status. Human rights include the right to life and liberty, freedom from slavery and torture, freedom of opinion and expression, the right to work and education, and many more. Everyone is entitled to these rights, without discrimination."
There is an expansion in the concept of human rights over the years since Universal Declaration on Human Rights was proclaimed on 10th December, 1948 by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris.
