To deliberately inflict pain on another human being is the most animalistic human trait by far. Everyone has the right to be mentally and physically freed from any form of torture. It is time the world stood together to put this ill treatment to a total halt.
It is disheartening that this sinister act is still happening, and could be going on in our backyards without even knowing. The United Nations has condemned the act of torture as one of the vilest and irresponsible actions committed by human beings to each other. To further express their support towards the victims of torture, they have specially chosen 26th June annually as International Day in Support of Victims of Torture. This year's theme is rehabilitation, which is selected to acknowledge its pivotal function to reintegrate the victims back to societies.
