A little late to the party but still relevant. A few months ago a person named Kanhaiya kumar was arrested for being anti national (whatever that means). Media as always supported him no matter what he did, (because of course he is against Modi). There is one point to note here —-> Every person agrees that if he was being anit India it is wrong. But again ofcourse free speech argument is always there. This gives us a vague idea as to how the democracy of India has progressed. India in all these years has never given any citizen absolute fundamental rights. I still don’t get why there should not be absoulte fundamental rights. Right to life should be absolute fundamental right. In case of henious rape cases, we should think why should we let them go with such painless death. We are not giving them any kind of punishment if they were punished by death penalty.
India and our national movement is not a movement for independent nation but a movement for rights. It started as that and ended in making a constitution which has utmost emphasis on Fundamental rights. Article 13 in Indian constitution states that if there is any amendment or law made which violates these fundamental rights then the law becomes invalid. If you look at all the rights that we have in the constitution every right has some loop which basically says it is not absolute and we are not even talking in the cases of emergency.
