The Limitations of Liberty Right as a Human Right

Mohammad Hossein Talebi

Abstract


Human rights are the rights of a human being because of his humanity. Those rights are several. Liberty is one of them. The question is: which level of liberty is acceptd as a human right? The answer to the question is related to our belife of religion. Liberty in different societies are different. The limitation of liberty is grounded on the culture in each society. Since each society has its culture, and the cultural issues in all societies are not the same, the limitation of liberty is not the same in all societies.

 

Western civil societies have their culture and then, they have their limitations of freedom. The limitation of liberty in those societies is mostly to stop harming to others's life in all aspects, such as: health, economy and welfare. They do not have any attention to their spritual life.

 

Religious societies have their culture as well. That is why, their border-line of human right liberty is very different from that of non-religious societies. Islam as a divine religion, pays an accurate attention to human spiritual life, because human spirits will not be dead after death. This is why, human right liberty in Islam is to stop harming to both levels of human life: spiritual aspects, like having good decrees and cover-dressing(hijab) and non-spiritual aspects, like economy, security and welfare.

 

Notwithstanding this, the different limitations of liberty in defferent societies do not prevent us to account those societies the observers of liberty as a human right.

To sum up, liberty right is a human right in all countries. The difference of border-lines of liberty in those countries is grounded on their different cultures. We should not expect all societies to be the same in observing human right freedom, because the spiritual aspects of life are important in some countries, like Islamic countries. therefore, liberty is more limited in those countries. Whereas, the ispiritual aspects of life are not so important in other non-islamic countries. Therefore, liberty in them are less limited.
