Right to Freedom

Freedom means absence of constraints. In practical life it means absence of interference in our affairs by others – be it other individuals or the government. We want to live in society, but we want to be free. We want to do things in the way we want to do them. Others should not dictate us what we should do. So, under the Indian Constitution all citizens have the right to

  • Freedom of speech and expression
  • Assembly in a peaceful manner
  • Form associations and unions
  • Move freely throughout the country
  • Reside in any part of the country and
  • Practice any profession, or to carry on any occupation, trade or business.

Every citizen has the right to all these freedoms. That means we cannot exercise our freedom in such a manner that violates others’ right to freedom. Our freedoms should not cause public nuisance or disorder. We are free to do everything, which injures no one else. Freedom is not unlimited license to do what one wants. Accordingly, the government can impose certain reasonable restrictions on our freedoms in the larger interests of the society.
