PM Narendra Modi addressed 28th Foundation Day festivities, the National Human Rights Commission's (NHRC): Details, About 

 Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi used video conferencing to address the National Human Rights Commission's (NHRC) 28th Foundation Day festivities in New Delhi on 12 October 2021. Shri Amit Shah, Union Minister of Home Affairs and Minister of Cooperation, Shri Nityanand Rai, Chairman of the National Human Rights Commission, Justice Arun Mishra, Union Home Secretary, and Chairman, and members of State Human Rights Commissions were among those who attended the Vigyan Bhawan event. The National Human Rights Anthem, as well as a short documentary movie about the National Human Rights Commission, were performed at this event.

Shri Amit Shah, Union Minister of Home Affairs and Cooperation said in his speech that when the new government came to power in 2014, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi led the country with a majority government for the first time in a long time and that since then, the Prime Minister's focus has been on an area that had previously gone unnoticed by those advocating Human Rights. He said that the country's millions of poor people had the right to equality and freedom, which can only be achieved in full when those millions of people have access to fundamental services. The Constitution guarantees these millions of poor people access to basic services, but no one had noticed this before PM Narendra Modi.

The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) was established on October 12, 1993, according to the Prime Minister's Office (PMO), for the promotion and protection of human rights.

The commission investigates any sort of human rights infringement, conducts investigations, and makes recommendations to the public authorities for compensation to victims, as well as other remedial and legal measures against erring public officials.

The commission also researches human rights treaties and international instruments and makes recommendations to the government on how to effectively implement them. It is responsible for raising public knowledge about human rights and supporting all stakeholders' activities in the field of human rights literacy, not only at the national but also at the international level.

The National Human Rights Commission of India (NHRC) collaborates with other National Human Rights Institutes (NHRIs) around the world to raise human rights awareness.
