Human Rights

Human rights are generally perceived as inalienable fundamental rights to which a person is inherently entitled simply because he or she is a human being. Human rights are thus conceived as universal and egalitarian. These rights may exist as natural rights or as legal rights, in local, regional, national, and international law. The doctrine of human rights in international practice, within international law, global and regional institutions, in the policies of states and in the activities of non-governmental organizations, has been a cornerstone of public policy around the world.

The constitution of People’s Republic of Bangladesh clearly spells out the fundamental principles of state policy. The Constitution explicitly articulates the protection and promotion of human rights (art. 11). It obliges all branches of government to respect and ensure the rights it enunciates.

Bangladesh Police aims to enhance the capacity and willingness of all its members to contribute in a collaborative manner to the creation of a safer and securer environment based on respect for human rights, equitable access to justice, and rule of law in accordance with the spirit of our constitution and the principles of the universal human rights. We always attach paramount importance to uphold the cause of human rights. Members of our law enforcement agencies are well conversant with the Constitutional Guarantees regarding the‘Inherence’ and ‘Inalienability’ of human rights.
