Meaning and Importance of Fundamental Rights
Fundamental rights are always intended to uphold human dignity and foster conditions that allow each person to express their personality fully. On the fundamental framework of human rights, they interlace a predictable pattern. It establishes restrictions on the state, not on interfering with individual liberty in all of its forms. They are necessary for a person to reach their full intellectual, moral, and spiritual potential.
Fundamental rights are recognized as necessary by our constitution. The country's minorities experience a sense of security thanks to fundamental rights. Without fundamental rights like the freedom of speech and expression, no democracy can function. The standards of behavior, citizenship, justice and fair play are granted through fundamental rights.
