Human rights in India is an issue complicated by the country’s large size and population as well as its diverse culture, despite its status as the world’s largest sovereign, secular, democratic republic. The constitution of India provides for Fundamental rights, which include freedom of religion. Clauses also provide for freedom of speech, as well as separation of executive and judiciary, and freedom of movement within the country and abroad. The country also has an independent judiciary as well as bodies to look into issues of human rights. The 2016 report of Human Rights Watch accepts the above-mentioned facilities but goes on to state that India has serious human rights concerns. Civil society groups face harassment and government critics face intimidation and lawsuits. Therefore, these rights belong to them because of their existence These rights are available to all people irrespective of their origin, race, religion gender, and nationality. Because of this right, fundamental rights are so important, they are sometimes called fundamental rights, fundamental rights inherent rights, natural rights, and birthrights. Human rights are the rights and freedom to which every human being is entitled Protection against breaches of these rights committed by a state (Including the state of which the victim is a national) may in some cases be enforced. In international law. It is sometimes suggested that human rights (or some of them) are so fundamental that they form part of natural law, but most of them are best regarded as forming part of the treaty. Thus, human rights are the rights of individual men and women to basic freedom. There are many such challenges national and international in front of human rights. The condition of women has improved but not as much as a thought. There are still many countries in which women have been denied rights. The condition of women is not good in countries, like Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, Syria, etc. Similarly, Poverty could not be completely eradicated, people remain troubled in such a way that they are not able to survive and fight for their rights. Terrorism has also not ended completely in the world, it is very bad in Afghanistan rights now along with terrorism, and the condition of migrant refugees is pathetic, which is being looked at.
