Human Rights In India

Human
rights protection in Indian cyberspace
is an
ignored
world. Very few are aware of the importance of this issues and even
the mainstream media is ignorant about the importance of safeguarding
human rights in cyberspace. This is the reason why the traditional
mainstream media is occasionally defeated by social media websites
these days.
 
The position of United
Nations and human Rights in cyberspace
is still
not clear.
Naturally, human
rights protection in cyberspace
is still in the
process of
contemplation alone. UN must realise that protecting
human rights in cyberspace
is its solemn duty
that it has
failed to discharge so far.
 
In the past as well suggestions
have been given by many techno legal experts to UN to ensure
protection of human rights in cyberspace. However, this issue seems
to be a complicated one as UN is taking lots of time to protect human
rights in cyberspace.
 
The World community on Human Rights,
Cyber Law and
Cyber
Security
must start thinking in this direction
as issues
like Cyber Warfare, Cyber Terrorism, Cyber Espionage, Cyber Crimes,
E-Surveillance, Unlawful Interceptions, etc are “Transnational
in nature, says Praveen
Dalal
, managing partner of New Delhi based law
firm
Perry4Law
and CEO of PTLB
and the exclusive Cyberspace
Human Rights Protection Centre of India
.
 
Clearly, the United
Nations must protect human rights in cyberspace

and keep a
close watch upon Internet censorship, e-surveillance, human rights
violations in cyberspace and similar activities.
 
Take the example of India. The lawful
interception law is needed in India
and the same
is still
missing despite contrary governmental claims. Till now, phone
tapping in India is not constitutionally performed
.
The
truth is that big
brother in India is violating Indian constitution

and even
courts are silent on this aspect.
 
Indian government has been taking many
steps that
are strengthening its e-surveillance and censorship capabilities
without meeting the constitutional requirements. For instance, the
central
monitoring system project of India
,  national
cyber coordination centre (NCCC) of India
, national
intelligence grid (Natgrid)
, national
counter terrorism centre (NCTC) of India
, Aadhar
project of India
, etc are all proposed without
any legal
framework supervising and justifying their functioning.
 
It is high time that UN must take notice of such developments
worldwide.
