Human Rights in Bangladesh: Stresses on the Period of 2009 to 2012


  • Mohajan, Haradhan


This paper is about human rights in Bangladesh and stresses on the period of 2009 to 2012. Bangladesh is a Parliamentary Democratic and densely populated country in the South Asia. Human rights are parts and parcel in a democratic country. In a country if human rights are violated then the country cannot be developed and the democracy of that country becomes weak. Human rights are violated in every country of the world. But extrajudicial killings like crossfire and death in custody, abduction, child labor, violence of workers’ rights, violence of women rights, women and child trafficking, public lynching, death penalty and discriminations on religion minorities and indigenous people are alarming in Bangladesh. This paper also discusses civil and political rights, social and economic rights and violation of these rights in Bangladesh
