For many Karl Marx is the symbol of extreme right nihilists. Marxism has posed its own finger print on major developments of the 20th century. However, it has been, for long, preferred to be skeptic on discourse of human rights view from Marx perspective. Even if some scholars have tried to reflect on the subject matter, the literature lack objectivity in a sense of taking Marx as antinomian or right-phobia. In this paper I will disprove the mainstream allegations through revealing the exact pictures portrayed by Marx in "On the Jewish questions", "Critique of the Gotha Program" and "the Communist Manifesto" of which basic conclusion was Marx did not generally reject rights, instead made a systematic classification and separate treatment of the so called human rights.
