The constitution is the living document which provides for the basic rights of an individual, one of these important rights is the Right to Freedom. Right to Freedom can be the Right to freedom of speech and expression, freedom to peaceful assembly, freedom to an association, freedom to move freely in India or to settle in any part of the country . Judiciary from time to time have interpreted these rights to meet the current need of the society and protected the rights of the citizens of India. This situation arises when either any enactment or any executive action abridges or violates the fundamental rights embodied in the constitution. The judiciary, to protect the citizens from these encroachments which affect their fundamental freedom interpreted and construed these rights of freedom as per the need of the time. This paper will analyze the right to the freedom given to citizens of India and also emphasize how the judiciary has interpreted these rights to protect the rights given to people. This paper will further analyze the interpretation of restrictions imposed upon fundamental freedom.
