“A progressive, balanced and just society is the one, which ensures that rights of all of its citizens are safeguarded through political, legal, economic, cultural and social instruments and frameworks,” he added.
For any state to achieve durable peace and foster democracy,
it was imperative that it put in place mechanism aimed at ensuring that rights of the people are protected, he noted.
