Abstract
All societies and cultures have in the past developed some conception of rights and principles that should be respected and some of these rights and principals have been considered universal in nature. The struggle for the recognition of human rights and the struggle against political, economic, social and cultural oppression, against injustice and inequalities, have been an integral part of the history of all human societies. The conception of the rights which every human being is entitled to enjoy by virtue of being a member of the human species has evolved through history in the course of these struggles. The origins of the contemporary conception of human rights can be traced to the period of the Renaissance and later of the enlightenment of which humanism may be said to be the heart and soul. Guru Nanak with universal approach is aiming at forging common bonds in the human race without discrimination of caste, creed, sex or nationality. Guru Nanak repeatedly emphasizes contemplation and service to humanity, equality of mankind, love and respect for all human beings, andpeace and harmony. Right to equality was firstly advocated by Guru Nanak,later on this right was granted by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights everyone is to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without the distinction of any kind, suchas race, colour, sex, language. The Constitution of India has also introduced the right to equality in its fundamental rights.
