Right to Live with Dignity
Since human rights can only be attached to living things, it makes obvious that the right to life itself would be considered primary since all other rights would be useless or worthless without it. If Article 21 had been interpreted in its original context, there wouldn't have been any Fundamental Rights worth noting. This article will look at how the Indian Supreme Court has interpreted and applied the right to life.
Natural beings are covered by Article 21. Everyone has the right, whether they are a citizen or an alien. As a result, anyone can assert this privilege. However, as stated in Article 19, it does not grant foreigners the right to remain in and settle in India. One of the fundamental rights guaranteed by Article 21 of the Indian Constitution is the right to live in dignity.
It implies that everyone has the unalienable right to live a life of dignity free from prejudice. They have the right to demand the same respect from the state and other people. The Supreme Court expanded upon Article 21 in Maneka Gandhi v. Union of India. The Court ruled that the right to life extends beyond simple physical survival and encompasses the right to live with dignity.
