"The Cyrus' Cylinder gained new prominence in the late 1960s when the last Shah of Iran called it "the world's first charter of human rights". The cylinder was a key symbol of the Shah's political ideology and is still regarded by some commentators as a charter of human rights, despite the disagreement of some historians and scholars."
"This ancient document is currently in the possession of the British Museum, which sponsored the expedition that discovered the cylinder"
What other documents from ancient times concern human rights or civil rights in ancient ages?
The whole translated text in English is available here.
After some heated debates under this topic I found it useful to add something about bellow:
Cyrus's attempts and his justice in making a safe and fearless situation for people of lands which he had made them free and taking care of their economical rights and safety in ancient ages in compare with kings who only by killing and plunder could occupy new lands has considered as primary signs of respect to human rights.
I know there are many heated debates between two different prejudice groups which first group defends of this document as a certain evidence of human rights in ancient ages and the second group who tries hard to ignore whole the matter and mixes it with lies and damages it completely by a wrong personal selection in translating this document from ancient languages to new languages and gives a personal idea about it with comparing it with human rights' concepts in 21 century!
I am against both as want to have an impartial approach to this invaluable evidence of a civilized action toward people of another country after war about 500BC which might you can not find the same justice in new ages in wars and after wars and in the soldiers' behaviors with people of occupied countries in 19,20 or even 21 century!
I don't want to make people of the second group sensitive against myself as I am not one of people of first group not even prejudiced about anything else. I only respect to this ancient evidence and found it a kind of notable respect to human rights in ancient ages and wanted to find if there is any similar attempts like this or not! That's all!
Anyway I respect to downvoters from second group who showed their disagreement with this topic by this reaction. Surely everyone has a special method of talking. I respect to different cultures and their methods of communication.
