This work on human rights is keenly interested in the solution of human problems, he has intelligently weaved with systematic thrust on various problems of minorities, housing, political morality and violation of human rights, forced eviction, press a necessary for civilised and human existence, law and custodial torture and role of police, environment in developing countries, economic crisis a global phenomenon, armed conflict to be replaced by basic amenities. The violation of human rights in the region can be largely attributed to the dominance of Westernized elites who control the state apparatus. Indeed, he argues that there is a tacit collusion between national elites (including scholars), NGOs and international agencies in neglecting human rights issues on the subcontinent. This monumental work will be useful for parliamentarians, social scientists, teachers and students in India and abroad.
