However, undeniably many consider human rights as a secularized substrate of Christianity different from, for example, sharia law.
But many argue: Almost all countries committed themselves to respect the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948), beyond culture.
Sure, but in many countries human rights are respected in name only, rejected as a “Western product” dangerous to traditions on-site.
As well, even in Western countries human rights aren’t well established (integration struggles, non-ethical behavior of multinational corporations).
Apparently human rights as a relatively new concept are outweighed by deeply rooted age-old cultures, where human rights aren’t culturally internalized.
