Q1 :  

All citizens may be granted equal rights but all may not be able to equally exercise them. Explain.


Answer :

All citizens may be granted equal rights but all may not be able to equally exercise them due to following factors:

  • Socio-economic inequality that prevents equality of opportunity

  • Lack of accessibility to legal remedies

  • Lack of awareness of rights

  • Corruption in the government apparatus that prevents the delivery of services covered under these rights.

The consequences of these factors can be seen in the following examples:

  • Every child has right to education but some children are not sent to school due to gender bias and poverty and therefore are engaged in child labour.

  • Many women are not aware that physical and mental torture by their husband comes under domestic violence. Therefore, they are not able to seek legal remedies.

Q2 :  

Write a short note on any two struggles for full enjoyment of citizen rights which have taken place in India in recent years. Which rights were being claimed in each case?


Answer :

The movement in India regarding the rights of lesbians and gays to express and lead a normal life demanded the decriminalisation of homosexuality by the state that was considered to be a crime. Delhi high court has decriminalised homosexuality but still the movement is on as it has not yet gained the legal approval.

Narmada Bachao Andolan is an environmental as well as human rights movement. The movement is against increasing the height of the dam. The increase in the height of the dam will flood the area and residents will get displaced. The movement is to force the government to decrease the height of the dam and pay proper compensation to the people and assure rehabilitation for them.

Both the above mentioned movements are still going on for the human rights of people. The first movement was for freedom of expression, right to security and normal life as Indian citizens. The second movement focused on the right to shelter, food, employment and security of the people as citizens of India.
