Rights gone wrong - do human rights really exist?
HUMAN RIGHTS INDUSTRY AND WESTERN HYPOCRISY
Oscar Wilde, perhaps the wittiest man to come
from British Isles once said that England was the native land of the
hypocrite. Oxford educated playwright journalist and a poet Oscar
Wilde may have had his own reasons to say so - but it often seems to
me that 113 years on of his death, hypocrisy may have been the
British and the Western leaders’ most successful export, in terms of
their foreign policy orientation based on ‘Human Rights Regime’
which I prefer to call as Human Rights Enterprise.
UNHRC – PET POODLE OF THE WEST
The Human Rights Commission in Geneva is a tool
to unreasonably punish countries that do not tow the US line and act
with a sense of self respect. A British Professor of International
Law said of the Human Rights Commission (UNHRC), “the Commission
lost its integrity and direction over time with much of its
membership decisions, power and focus coming to be fuelled by
disreputable goals, rather than motivated by the aim of promoting,
protecting and advancing human rights”.
CSD GUNS turned into ploughshares
Members of the Civil Security Department (CSD)
who rendered an exemplary service to the humanitarian operation to
save the country from the clutches of terrorism are now playing a
greater role in post-war development. They are playing a pivotal
role to strengthen the national economy. CSD personnel have able to
live up to the expectations of President Mahinda Rajapaksa and
Defence and Urban Development Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa who
established the CSD as a fully fledged department.
