The main driving force behind this declaration, Eleanor Roosevelt was convinced that: “The destiny of human rights is in the hands of all our citizens in all our communities.” This is one of the philosophies behind REOs creation and manner of operation- the key to the fulfillment of universal human rights is to find the balance between rights and duties. Mahatma Gandhi pursued the same ideas: “When we turn away from our obligations, the human rights will be further away then ever” (Mahatma Gandhi).[/aboutbox][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row extra_id=”about” ses_title=”About us” ses_sub_title=”Research and Empowerment Organization (REO) promotes and advocates human rights in areas where women, minorities and marginalized groups are targets of regular human rights violations and global attention for these abuses is lacking.

Case: 01 – A Hindu Minor Girl Bristy’s Story

Bristy 11 a minor Hindu girl of grade-7 of Bogra was kidnapped and raped brutally for 5 days by one Mohammed Azizul Sheikh, 25. On 8th May 2016 at around 7pm, Bristi’s schoolmate Shirin, a Muslim girl and also a neigbour came to her house and requested to go to a nearby house to bring some schoolnote from another girl, Bristi agreed unwillingly. By this way, she was kidnapped on knife point by Azizul and others by a microbus.


They seduced her with chloroform to an unknown place. In Bristi’s own words, “I was senseless and while woke up at a room, fully naked and raped. Azizul was at the room. After that day, he repeatedly raped me and also changed places. I was crying all along while he was raping me like an animal. After 5 days my father and few local people rescued me.”


While kidnapped, Bristi tried to escape, but soon weakened by the affect of chlorofom in a handkerchief used to seduced her. Ronjita, Sukumol and Promila age 27-35 witnessed the kidnapping but kept mum as Azizul threatned with a knife to kill them. Do you want justice? Bristi replied, “Definitely, Azizul did the same thing with other Hindu girls before me. Because of embrassed parents did not come forward and administration also was relactant to do anything, but I want justice, I want justice.”
