Odhikar continues to struggle for the establishment of a democratic state based on equality, human dignity and social justice. Odhikar monitors and highlights the human rights situation of the country, with the aim of ensuring the civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights of the people. Odhikar has faced severe state repression and harassment since 2013. In 2022, government surveillance and harassment on Odhikar continued.
Odhikar has prepared the Annual Human Rights Report 2022, based on reports sent by local human rights defenders and collected data and information published in various media, despite continued obstructions from the state. The report highlights violations of civil and political rights, including systematic suppression of freedom of speech, destruction of democratic systems, politicization of the judiciary, and deprivation of the right to life.
