The protection of human rights is crucial for the growth of the nation's population, which ultimately leads to the growth of the country as a whole. Every Indian citizen is entitled to fundamental human rights under the country's Constitution. The Constitution's creators made every effort to include all required provisions. The scope of human rights has, nevertheless, been broadened as a result of ongoing advances. Despite the fact that the idea of human rights has been around since, it was only recently that the entire world came to an understanding of its importance. Legal scholars have properly stated that the UDHR's principles have gained the power of customary international law over time even if it lacks legal standing. Many other binding international legal instruments, such as the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, have adopted its principles. The UDHR's expansive mandate, which tries to encompass everything under its jurisdiction as long as it is connected to human rights, may be the rationale for this. The protection of human rights is essential for the development of the nation's population, which in turn helps the country as a whole.
