The idea of the rule of law has been around for ages and is quite significant in politics. Because of the Rule of Law, nobody is above the law. No person shall be subjected to harsh, uncivilized, or discriminatory treatment, even when the goal is to secure the utmost requirements of law and order, according to the rule of law. According to the rule of law, everyone, including institutions and entities, must abide by laws that are: Publicly enacted, Enforced equally, and adjudicated independently. Furthermore, it is in line with universal human rights standards. It necessitates taking steps to ensure adherence to the values of the rule of law, accountability to the rule of law, equality before the law, fairness in the application of the law, separation of powers, involvement in decision-making, legal certainty, avoidance of arbitrariness, and procedural and legal transparency. The fundamental principle of the Indian Constitution is that all people are equal before the law, which gave rise to the idea of equality. Another fundamental principle is the rule of law. The concept of the rule of law refers to the supreme control of the law over governmental activity and personal conduct. It is comparable to a scenario in which both the government and people are subject to the law and must abide by it. It stands in contrast to oppressive or arbitrary rule. The establishment of the liberal democratic system of governance in the West is correlated with the rule of law, which is the result of historical processes across centuries. There are conflicting perspectives about the rule of law.
