Human unlike other creatures are very desirous to liberty. We all are well aware that the freedom is one of the basic rights which is the prime choice of human. Human rights are those rights which are inherent to human by the birth. These rights don’t need any boundaries. Human exists everywhere besides nationality, colour, creed etc. So, human rights need not to be specified. Hunger, poverty, carnage etc. still exists even after the declaration of the UDHR. Mob lynching is one of the serious evils in present time by which human rights are being abrogated or excavated. In this study it is being tried to focus over such problem with the reference to the human rights. It is also to be focused here, that what are the existing provision in the State and what are the challenges and measures to the mob lynching. The constitution of India is consisted of mostly all those rights which were enshrined under Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Fundamental Rights are the prime measures to overcome such evil.
