The South Asian people share many socioeconomic and political problems, such as poverty, illiteracy, unemployment, unequal treatment of women, violence against women, pollution, exploitation of child labor, and religious fundamentalism. Even in this infoage, South Asia remain as the most terrorized, most poorest, most illiterate, most malnourished, and, least gender sensitive region.
The existence of significant ongoing human rights abuses is not acknowledged by the South Asian governments or their mainstream media. South Asian governments have ratified some international human rights instruments, but such policy is not reflected in the national constitution or law of any government. Organizations like South Asian Forum for Human Rights (SAFHR), are not the complete answer, but give a voice to the needs of the people.
