Abstract: Human rights are those rights which belong to the person equally for being a human. They are
universal in nature because they are available to all human being irrespective of their religion,
race, caste, gender, peace of birth etc. On the other hand, minority rights are the normal
individual rights as applied to members of racial, ethnic, class, religious, linguistic or gender and
sexual minorities. The concept of universality of human rights is not clear or beneficial for every
society or country until it is implemented in conformity with the prevailing conditions in
different societies. The concept of human rights cannot be equally applicable for every society or
community. Harmonious relation of one minority with the other and between the minorities and
majorities is a great asset to the multi-ethnic and multi-cultural diversity of global society. It is of
prime importance that each citizen has respect for individual group's identity.
