Nuclear non-proliferation: A best safe guard for human rights and human security
Sofi Yasir Hassan, Sona Shukla
Land without humans and humans without rights are nothing. This time we live under the umbrella of nuclear weapons. Currently world is threatened by 17, 300 nuclear war heads of which at least 2200 are operational. (i.e., deployed and ready to fire within hours or even minutes). If less than 5% operational war heads are used in the world, it will tear down the human life to such an extent that a decayed would fall under global famine which would starve to death a billion and millions will suffer injuries. This ultimately affects the rights of people and community, collective rights of people to live life safely is also affected. It is clear that nuclear war heads have capacity to enhance larger amount of Human Rights violation. It is always in a discussion about the hazards of the nuclear warheads and to promote the disarmament as a means of prevention of human rights. This is our duty to protect third generation of humans giving them full protection and by providing safe and healthy environment, also better conditions to survive. In this paper NPT is revived keeping human rights and human security as a main concern, a light has been thrown on the various issues that act as threat to above concerns.
