The Fundamental Rights are often described as the backbone of the Constitution of India, 1950. The Executive is ordinarily prohibited from making laws or passing orders which violate these rights, except in certain circumstances where permitted by the Constitution.

By understanding the fundamental rights, we gain a wider understanding of our rights as citizens, the responsibilities that the State has towards us, and the special protections to attain equity for marginalized communities.
