Ancient archaeological remains have been thrust into the cruel world of today's seemingly endless conflicts — the ever-changing aims and alliances of international politics, religions dueling on the world stage, and the ironic trade-off of providing aid to conserve the material heritage of the past but not to preserve the lives of modern inheritors of that past. Arrayed against the tolerant and measured messages of Buddhism, the quagmire of the "Bamiyan Massacre" was perplexing at best.

Pakistani Lawyer Gets UNESCO/Bilbao Human Rights Award

Some countries don't nudge to the international pressure. Even though UN and it's associate international bodies may not  be able to alter the hostile situation of certain countries , they do keep recognizing people who stood against the oppressive(more appropriately strong government) regimes. For example-  The Nobel Peace Prize 2010 was awarded to Liu Xiaobo "for his long and non-violent struggle for fundamental human rights in China". And now a Pakistani Lawyer Gets Human Rights Award from UNESCO. May be it's a new way of expressing international opinion. 

UNESCO’s Director-General, Irina Bokova, has nominated Asma Jahangir from Pakistan as laureate of the 2010 UNESCO/Bilbao Prize for the Promotion of a Culture of Human Rights. Asma Jahangir was selected by the Prize's International Jury in recognition of her exceptional and courageous contribution to building a universal culture of human rights. The Director-General will award the Prize - the monetary award of US$25,000, the diploma and the bronze trophy by Toshimi Ishii, at the ceremony that will take place in the presence of the Mayor of Bilbao Iñaki Azkuna on Human Rights Day -today i.e on 10 December - in Bilbao, Spain...
