    I am voting for Mr. Anjum Raza Mattu for this Human Dignity award because of his efforts to improve human rights situations and eliminate bondage in The Punjab. It has been a long struggle for him and like-minded friends to bring justice for the kiln workers and the Insan Dost Association is being recognised on the world stage by receiving a Peace Award from Die Schwelle Foundation in Bremen later this year.. May Justice Prevail and make their world a better place to live in.
