The concept of a root religion which is being pushed into the mainstream agenda by the rightist groups in the Indian Context will endanger civil rights in the years to come. A world in which linguistic expressions are closely monitored and freedom of language is  challenged, the open space for creative interactions and intellectual debates is facing threat of extinction, stated Mr. K. E. N Kunjahammad inaugurating the the three day UGC National Seminar on Human Rights and Community Empowerment organised Unity Women’s College, Manjeri. When Human Rights violations are on the rise and freedom of language is being curtailed, what is required is a society which places the pivot on the principles of freedom, equality and fraternity. Such a society will have to catalyse a social order which permits freedom to agree as well as disagree. What Human Rights seminars need to promote is such a space. He also stated that those who are after Ms. Teesta Setalvad, the Human Rights activist, are those who would like to muffle the voice of dissent. When the State turns the Rights violator, the Human rights scenario will be quite grim and such a situation demands increased alert on the part of the community. Mr. Shabeermon. M., Head of the Histroy Department, welcomed the gathering and Dr. C. Saidalavi, the Principal, presided over the function. Adv. U. A. Latheef, Dr. Jyothi, Fathima Zuhara, and Monica Mihandas, the chair person of the college Union were present. Tomorrow there will be sessions on Human Rights and Women, Workplace, Consumers and Environment. The seminar will conclude on 26 February 201
