To whom prophets and messengers were assigned as part of their key missions, to establish spiritual, universal moral values, protection of human rights and promotion of understanding and cooperation in their respective communities.
Throughout history, tolerance and human rights have existed in some successive cultures and human experiences proved by researchers who depicted the Hammurabi Babylonian Codes , the Ten Commandments of Moses and the conspicuous traits of tolerance in Islam for ages.
Such association is by no means restricted by time and place when it comes to tolerance and human rights. The modern respective concept accentuates human dignity and rights excluding whatever discrimination rejected by international conventions and charters.
Therefore, the UNESCO1995 universal declaration of human rights highlighted the integral linkage between human rights, tolerance, democracy and peace the UN committed to spread through mutual understanding between people and cultures in which tolerance should collaboratively nurture through communication, cultural and interreligious openness.
The inherent relation between tolerance and human rights has obliged civilized societies to establish such a relation through proper legislative regulations to curb any respective violations.
