Give Due Respect to the Dignity of the Dead : Supreme Court asks State Governments to Follow NHRC Guidelines

While directing the state governments, the supreme court of India has asked for full compliance with National Human Rights Commission

  • The Supreme Court of India has asked the state government to respect the dignity of the dead
  • The state governments have been reminded to comply with National Human Rights Commission
  • The statements from the Apex Court comes as a complaint was filed by NHRC that the state governments are not enforcing their guidelines

July 19, 2017: The Supreme Court of India has reminded the state governments to follow and comply with the guidelines of National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) and respect the dignity of the dead.

These statements from Supreme court come as part of the complaint by the NHRC that the guidelines formulated on paper have never actually been enforced by any state of India.

The NHRC intends to assist the judicial system in criminal matters while maintaining the respect for human rights.

According to the sources at PTI, the supreme court bench stated “It is not as if the dignity of only living persons needs to be respected but even the dignity of the dead must be given due respect. Unless the communications and guidelines laid down by the NHRC are adhered to, the respect and dignity due to the dead and the human rights of all us will remain only on paper.”

The Supreme Court also noted the NHRC’s failure to bring out its annual report. The court’s verdict also mentioned “Several years have gone by since then, but no annual report has been published. We have no idea what is the stage of preparation or consideration of the subsequent annual reports.”

Indian Supreme Court has also reminded that the Constitution requires every state to have States Human Rights Commission (SHRC).

The verdict was a follow up of the probe into extrajudicial killings and fake encounters by Army.
