Can We Reconcile The Universal Human Rights with Islam

Mirza Fahlevy


The Universal Human Rights is one of the most intrigued issues and often hotly
being discussed around the globe. The issue seems never escape from media. This is not because the Human Rights is irrelevant to the human being, rather its value is
essential. Several countries, for example, shift human rights discourses when drafting certain bill before passing it to citizens. The international agreement also, like UN Resolution, and other international laws, often taking the human rights value into account before exercising it. All of these facts highlighted that the Universal Human Rights is an important principle to be integrated within the global citizens.
