ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the publication of the United Nations (UN) Declaration on Human Rights on June 19, 1948. It cites that the provisions of the declaration are invoked by victims of injustice or planners of policies, by governments, parties, individuals, in good or bad faith. It asserts that history created the declaration, because it grew out of a general response to such assaults upon conscience of mankind. It notes the influence of the religious groups on the human rights declaration.
