No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honour and reputation. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks”(UN Declaration of Human Rights, Article-12)
Bangladesh has suffered from a long history of authoritarianism. The British imperial rule led to an over arching authoritarian system. Bangladesh has been trying to consolidate democracy under many constraints. During the long period of Pakistani authoritarianism, there was little scope for promoting human rights. In spite of improvements of the human rights situation, Bangladesh is facing various problems. There is conspicuous human rights violation in the country, which can only be summed up through the expression ``Increased Violence”. The violence is being deployed against those who are marginal and powerless in the Society. Trafficking of women and children as well as prostitution has escalated. There are still repressive laws and lack of adequate legal protection on human rights practices, problems with regard to disappearance, police brutality, acid burns and rapes, arbitrary arrest, discrimination based on race, sex and religion, extensive use of child labor and fatwa.In short, the victims of human rights abuses are the poorer and weaker segment of the population who are exploited and deprived of most social services, since they lack information, awareness and power to establish their rights.
