Human Rights, Violation of Human Rights

Human rights are the articulation of the need for justice, tolerance, mutual respect, and human dignity in all of our activity. Speaking of rights allows us to express the idea that all individuals are part of the scope of morality and justice. To violate the most basic human rights, is to deny individuals their fundamental moral entitlements. It is, in a sense, to treat them as if they are less than human and undeserving of respect and dignity. There are various types of violations. For example, rape is one of highly destructive and damaging to the victims.

Women and girls in Tabit town in North Darfur are raped by Sudanese army forces in their homes, in the streets and in front of their loved ones. One woman said that the soldiers came into her house and dragged her out. When she returned back home, her three daughters were already raped and they were all under the age of 15. Another woman who has changed her name to protect her identity said that she witnessed a terrifying crime. She saw Sudanese soldiers beaten her uncle with a whip and then, they raped the two women while she was hiding in closet.

Sexual assault and rape affect the mind, body and spirit of the victim. Many survivors experience one or more psychological problems. The physical, mental and spiritual effects following sexual assault and rape are difficult to cope with. It is common for a survivor of sexual violence to experience an array of feelings that may be confusing and can create more anxiety, such as anger, distrust and feeling unsafe. Abuse of human rights often leads to conflict, and conflict typically results in human rights violations.
