Hindrance of human rights activities of Odhikar 

Odhikar  believes  that  ‘democracy’  is  a  form  of  the  State  and  that  freedom  and human  rights  are  its  foundations.  Democracy  is  not  merely  a  process  of  electing  a ruler; it is the result of the peoples’ struggle for inalienable rights, which become the fundamental premise to constitute the State. Therefore, the individual freedoms and democratic  aspirations  of  the  citizens –  and  consequently,  peoples’  collective  rights and responsibilities - must be the foundational principles of the State.
