The right to constitutional remedies makes sure the fundamental rights seem enforced. Another right would be the right to privacy, which is part of the article 21 in the right of freedom. It is the newest right to be assured by the highest court of India so that the Indian citizen’s data and personal security is never compromised.

The fundamental rights were made so that-

  • The inequalities that we faced in the hands of the British 
  • The pre-independence social practices which included untouchability, discrimination based on religion, sex, caste, race, colour, etc.

The fundamental rights propounded that-

The fundamental rights were part of all the drafts of the constitution when proposed by the drafting committee. For a democratic nation to function, fundamental rights such as freedom and speech and expression and other various freedoms hold high esteem.
