The concept of human rights are not the new one, every era defines and addresses these rights in different ways and by different names. But, after the Universal Declaration of Human rights, every country collective accepted the value of human rights. That’s why they recognized various rules and laws for the protection of human rights at the national and international levels. Human rights help human beings to live a dignified life. The word ‘dignify ‘make the scope of human rights limitless. To get fast justice without delay also comes under the ambit of a dignified life. But the pendency of cases in the courts makes it hard for people to get justice at the proper time. It further weakens the faith of people in justice which results in the failure of law and order in society. Because for maintaining law and order it is important to impart punishment to the accused at fast as possible which helps to cure the wounds of the victim and society. But another impact of pendency and delay on the accused who is innocent and spent the whole of his life in imprisonment without any fault has no way of compensation. The accused who was falsely charged with a crime and then acquitted after several years, without holding anybody accountable for spoiling his life is a big joke. He has no way to get a dignified life because stains of stigma never fade. So for protecting the human rights of the accused it is very important to decide his case as soon as possible and fast without any delay because nobody can return one s lost respect and dignity. So making laws and setting up courts are not apt for maintaining law and order in society. More important is to provide justice without any delay because justice delayed is justice denied.
