Human rights education is highly relevant to promote protective mechanism against discrimination and equity among the people. It is a mechanism by which people learn about their rights and the rights of others in participative and immersive learning.“Human rights education in India became more relevant because the public received attention from nongovernmental organisations, the media and litigators of public concern to increasingly violated human rights, cases of custodian abuse, mass detentions without trial, bonded and child labour and environmental harm and the like”(Ashifa,2020). The work of the “National Commission for Human Rights (NHRC)” became more influential and led to this new ethos.
