Menschenrechtspreis für indischen Arzt

(Foto: weimar.de)

WEIMAR. (hpd) Der Arzt Dr. Lenin Raghuvanshi aus Indien ist diesjähriger Träger des
Menschenrechtspreises der Stadt Weimar. Diese Auszeichnung ist ihm am 10.
Dezember, dem Internationalen Tag der Menschenrechte, im Festsaal der
Musikhochschule „Franz Liszt“ überreicht worden. Der Preis ist mit 2.500 Euro und
einer künstlerischen Beigabe der Bauhaus Universität Weimar dotiert.

In der Begründung für die Auszeichnung des indischen Menschenrechtlers heißt es u.a.: „Als
Gründer des »People´s Vigilance Committee on Human Rights (PVCHR)« bemüht sich Dr.
Raghuvanshi um die Wahrung und Durchsetzung der Grundrechte benachteiligter
Bevölkerungsgruppen, wie Frauen, Kinder, Dalits und indigene Minderheiten. Er hat mit
seinem Komitee Strukturen geschaffen, die es ermöglichen, die Grundrechte einzufordern.“

Die Klassikerstadt Weimar ehrt Lenin Raghuvanshi vor allem deshalb, weil er sich seit 15
Jahren für die Rechte und Belange der Dalits (Angehörige der untersten Kaste) im indischen
Bundesstaat Uttar Pradesh einsetzt. Seine Organisation PVCHR hilft nicht nur
Benachteiligten, ihre Grundrechte einzufordern. Raghuvanshi dokumentiert auch jegliche
Art von Menschenrechtsverletzungen wie Hungertod, Polizeifolter oder Kinderarbeit und
betreut die Opfer in Zusammenarbeit mit lokalen Menschenrechtsgruppen.

Eine weitere erfolgreiche Initiative Lenin Raghuvanshis ist die Konzeption von »People
Friendly Villages« (menschenfreundliche Dörfer). In von vorrangig Dalis bewohnten
Gebieten werden Grundschulen errichtet, alternative Bildungswege angeboten und die
Ausbildung von Mädchen gefördert. Ziel ist die Stärkung der Verwaltungs- und
Organisationsfähigkeit der marginalisierten Gruppen, damit diese in der Lage sind, ihre
Rechte einzufordern bzw. ihre spezifischen Anliegen an den Staat weiterzutragen.
Wegen seines sozialkritischen Engagegements erlebt Raghuvanshi immer wieder
Belästigungen und Bedrohungen, z.B. ist er im Jahre 2007 in der demokratischen Republik
sogar wegen "staatsfeindlicher Äußerungen" angeklagt worden.

Preis wird seit 1995 vergeben

Der Weimarer Menschenrechtspreis wird seit 1995 jährlich am Tag der Menschenrechte
vergeben. Die Stadt sieht darin aufgrund ihrer widersprüchlichen Geschichte als Ort des
Humanismus und des Konzentrationslagers Buchenwald eine besondere Verpflichtung.
Preisträger in den vergangenen Jahren waren Menschenrechtsaktivistinnen aus Serbien und
Simbabwe und der palästinensische Menschenrechtler Issam Younis.

Menschenrechtspreis an Inder Lenin Raghuvanshi

Weimar (dpa) - Für seinen Einsatz für unterdrückte Bevölkerungsgruppen hat Weimar den
Inder Lenin Raghuvanshi mit dem Menschenrechtspreis 2010 geehrt. Raghuvanshi setze sich
für die Rechte der Dalits, der Angehörigen der niedrigsten Kaste, im indischen Bundesstaat
Uttar Pradesh ein, heißt es in der Jurybegründung. Der mit 2500 Euro dotierte Preis sollte am
Abend des Internationalen Tags der Menschenrechte verliehen werden.

Raghuvanshi dokumentiert Menschenrechtsverletzungen wie Hungertod, Polizeifolter und


Kinderarbeit und betreut Opfer. Sein Leben und das seiner Familie wurde mehrfach bedroht.
Raghuvanshi wurde 1970 geboren und studierte Medizin, Ayurveda und Chirurgie in Indien.
Er wurde von der FDP-nahen Friedrich-Naumann-Stiftung vorgeschlagen.

Nach Angaben des Preisträgers leisten die unteren Kasten 85 Prozent der Arbeit, während die
oberen Kasten fast 90 Prozent des Besitzes haben. Die Zahl der «Unberührbaren» (Dalits)
und Menschen in unteren Kasten werde auf etwa 240 Millionen geschätzt. In Raghuvanshis
«People Friendly Villages» (menschenfreundliche Dörfer) werden Grundschulen gebaut,
alternative Bildungswege angeboten und die Ausbildung von Mädchen gefördert. Das
Kastenwesen wurde 1950 mit der Gründung der Republik Indien in der Verfassung
abgeschafft, bestimme aber bis heute den Alltag von Millionen Menschen. #

bzw. Organisationen aus den verschiedensten Ländern der Welt zur Auswahl. Allen ist eines
gemeinsam: Der besondere Einsatz für die Wahrung und Verwirklichung der
Menschen¬rechte, auch unter Bedrohung der eigenen Person.

Die Stadt Weimar ehrt mit der Vergabe des Menschenrechtspreises das Engagement dieser
Menschen. Die Verleihung findet seit 1995 alljährlich am 10. Dezember, dem Internationalen

Rassismus und Fremdenfeindlichkeit aufgegriffen. Eine weitere erfolgreiche Initiative Dr.
Lenin Raghuvanshis ist die Konzeption von „People Friendly

anspricht, kam es zu Belästigungen und Bedrohung gegen ihn und seine Mitarbeiter. Zudem
sah er sich 2007 mit einer falschen Anklage wegen angeblicher staatsfeindlicher Äußerung
konfrontiert. Der Preisträger wurde von der Friedrich-Naumann-Stiftung für die Freiheit
vorgeschlagen. Der Geschäftsführende Vorstand der Stiftung, Rolf Berndt, wird die Laudatio

Weimar: City Council gives Human Rights
Prize 2010 to Dr. Lenin Raghuvanshi of
India
Posted on 2010/06/29

The City Council announced in its session of 23rd June, 2010 that it will give the Human
Rights Prize of the City of Weimar 2010 to Dr. Lenin Raghuvanshi of India. Dr. Lenin
Raghuvanshi has been working for 15 years for the rights and interests of the Dalits,
primarily in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.

Extract from citation for City of Weimar Human Rights Prize

As the founder of the Peoples‘ Vigilance Committee on Human Rights ( PVCHR ), he strove
to maintain and enforce the fundamental rights of vulnerable groups such as children, women
, Dalits and indigenous minorities.

Dr. Raghuvanshi with his committee put in place structures that allow it to demand these
basic rights. He also documented many kinds of human rights such as starvation, police
torture, child labor, etc., and tried through cooperation with local human rights groups to care
for the victims individually.

Because of their commitment to human rights are he, his family and associates face
permanent hostility (including death threats ) from political opponents. Dr. Lenin
Raghuvanshi was proposed for this Award by the "Friedrich Naumann Foundation for
Freedom".

The city of Weimar has the honour to remember its special historical responsibility and
remember all the nameless victims of dictatorships and tyrannies in the world, a human rights
award.
Weimar is a city in Germany famous for its cultural heritage. Weimar's cultural heritage is
vast. It is most often recognised as the place where Germany's first democratic constitution
was signed after the First World War, giving its name to the Weimar Republic period in
German politics, of 1918–1933. However, the city was also the focal point of the German
Enlightenment and was where writers Goethe and Schiller developed the literary movement
of Weimar Classicism. The city was also the birthplace of the Bauhaus movement, founded in
1919 by Walter Gropius, with artists Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Oskar Schlemmer, and
Lyonel Feininger teaching in Weimar's Bauhaus School.

Previous Winners of the Weimar Human Rights Prize include Sonja Biserko of Serbia,
Jestina Mukoko of Zimbabwe and Father Shay Cullen from the Philippines.

Raghuvanshi, FNF Alumni

On 10 December, International Human Rights Day, Dr. Lenin


Raghuvanshi from India will be presented with the 2010 Human Rights Award of the city of
Weimar.

“Being the Founder of ‘People’s Vigilance Committee on Human Rights (PVCHR)’, Dr.
Raghuvanshi strives for observation and assertion of fundamental rights of disadvantaged
fractions of the population, such as women, children, Dalits and indigenous minorities. With
his committee he has created structures, substantiating enforcement of fundamental rights.”
as stated in the municipal council’s explanatory statement, met on 23 June 2010, determining
Dr. Raghuvanshi to be awarded. The awardee has been suggested by “Friedrich-Nauman-
Stiftung für die Freiheit” (Friedrich-Naumann-Foundation for Liberty).

For the past 15 years, Dr. Lenin Raghuvanshi has advocated the Dalit’s (members of the
lowest cast) rights and concerns in the Indian Federal State Uttar Pradesh. Coherently to this
engagement, he founded the ‘People’s Vigilance Committee on Human Rights (PVCHR)’ in
1996. This Organization supports aggrieved populace, such as children, women or minorities
to claim their fundamental rights.

For that purpose he keeps records on any kind of violation of human rights, such as
starvation, police torture or child labour and in co-operation with local human rights groups
attends their victims. Cases, dealt with by PVCHR, have, due to Lenin Raghuvanshi’s
engagement, been seized by the UN - Special Rapporteur on contemporary forms of racism,
racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance.

Another of Dr. Lenin Raghuvanshi’s successful initiatives is his conceptual design of “people
friendly villages”. In areas, first and foremost inhabited by Dalis, primary schools are
installed, offering alternative teaching methods and advocating girls’ education. Ambition is
the fortification of administrative and organizational abilities of marginalized groups, in order
to enable them to call for their rights and arrogate specific concerns from the state.

Frequently addressing politically aggravating, often socio-critical topics, Dr. Raghuvanshi


has been subject to harassment and death thread against himself, as well as his colleagues.
Moreover he was confronted with an incorrect accusal for alleged subversive statements.

The prize will be awarded on 10th December 2010, 7.30 p.m. at ‘Hochschule für Musik
Franz Liszt Weimar’ (Franz Liszt academy of Music). The award is endowed with 2.500,00 €
and an artistic supplement by Bauhaus Universität Weimar (Bauhaus University).

Short vita of the awardee


Dr. Lenin Raghuvanshi was born on 18th May 1970 in Varanasi. Honours graduate of
Medical Science, Ayurveda and Surgery at Gurukul Kangari University, State University for
Ayurveda and Medicine in 1994. Since 1992 married to Shruti Nagvanshi, 1 son, Kabeer
Karunik, 12 years old.

Menschenrechtspreis an Inder Lenin
Raghuvanshi
Weimar (dpa/th) - Der Weimarer Menschenrechtspreis 2010 geht an den Inder Lenin
Raghuvanshi. Er setze sich seit 15 Jahren für die Rechte der Dalits, der Angehörigen der
niedrigsten Kaste, im Bundesstaat Uttar Pradesh ein, teilte die Stadt Weimar am Donnerstag
mit. Als Gründer eines Komitees zur Wahrung der Menschenrechte kämpfe er um die
Grundrechte benachteiligter Bevölkerungsgruppen, darunter Frauen, Kinder und
Minderheiten. Er dokumentiere Polizeifolter, Hungertod und Kinderarbeit und betreue
zusammen mit lokalen Initiativen die Opfer. Sein Leben und das seiner Familie wurde
mehrfach bedroht. Der mit mindestens 2500 Euro dotierte Preis wird am 10. Dezember, dem
Tag des Internationalen Menschenrechte, vergeben.

Raghuvanshi, der 1996 gemeinsam mit seiner Frau die unabhängige Organisation »Peoples
Vigilance Committee on Human Rights« gründete, wurde von der FDP-nahen Friedrich-
Naumann-Stiftung vorgeschlagen. Obwohl das Kastenwesen 1950 mit der Gründung der
Republik Indien in der Verfassung abgeschafft wurde, bestimmt es bis heute den Alltag von
Millionen von Menschen.

Nach Angaben des Preisträgers leisten in Indien die unteren Kasten 85 Prozent der Arbeit,
während die oberen Kasten fast 90 Prozent des Besitzes haben. Die Zahl der
»Unberührbaren« (Dalits) und unteren Kasten werde auf etwa 240 Millionen geschätzt. Die
Stadt Weimar sieht sich als Hort des Humanismus und Ort der NS-Barbarei in der besonderen
Verpflichtung, Menschenrechtler weltweit in ihrem oft lebensgefährlichen Einsatz zu
unterstützten. Die Klassikerstadt vergibt den Preis zum 16. Mal.

the place where Germany's first democratic constitution was signed after the First World
War, giving its name to the Weimar Republic period in German politics, of 1918-1933.
However, the city was also the focal point of the German Enlightenment and was where
writers Goethe and Schiller developed the literary movement of Weimar Classicism. The city
was also the birthplace of the Bauhaus movement, founded in 1919 by Walter Gropius, with
artists Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Oskar Schlemmer, and Lyonel Feininger teaching in
Weimar's Bauhaus School.

Lenin, founder of Peoples Vigilance Committee on Human Rights (PVCHR), has been
working for 15 years for the rights of the Dalits, children and women. He also documented
the cases of starvation, police torture, and child labour. His name for the award was proposed
by the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom. According to Lenin, the award will given
to him at a function organised on the occasion of International Human Rights Day on
December 10.
