Fundamental Rights of Citizens of India

Fundamental Rights enjoyed by the Citizens of India
 
The Constitution of India offers all citizens, individually and collectively, some basic freedoms. These are guaranteed in the Constitution in the form of six broad categories of Fundamental Rights, which are justiciable. Article 12 to 35 contained in Part III of the Constitution deal with Fundamental Rights. These are:
  1. Right to equality: Right to equality, including equality before law, prohibition of discrimination on grounds of religion, race, caste, sex or place of birth, and equality of opportunity in matters of employment;
  2. Right to freedom: Right to freedom of speech and expression, assembly, association or union, movement, residence, and right to practice any profession or occupation (some of these rights are subject to security of the State, friendly relations with foreign countries, public order, decency or morality);
  3. Right to freedom from exploitation: Right against exploitation, prohibiting all forms of forced labour, child labour and traffic in human beings;
  4. Right to freedom fo religion: Right to freedom of conscience and free profession, practice, and propagation of religion;
  5. Culture and Educational rights: Right of any section of citizens to conserve their culture, language or script, and right of minorities to establish and administer educational institutions of their choice; and
  6. Right to constitutional remedies: Right to constitutional remedies for enforcement of Fundamental Rights.
I am posting the above reminder and refresher on fundamental rights in wake of the discrimination happening against people in various part of India. These fundamental rights list has been taken from the Know India: National Portal of India
