Concerted application and harmonious balancing of competing values underlying the constitutional provisions on Fundamental Rights have expanded and moulded the constitutional jurisprudence of the country. This work makes a comprehensive and critical study of this development.
Right to strike or call a bundh or to hold a demonstration or conduct a procession or the right to acquisition of place of worship or property of minority institutions, capitation fee and right to education, fundamental rights and duties, contempt of court and freedom of speech, directive principles of state policies and the right to personal liberty and their relationship with other laws under the Constitution have been discussed in great details.
The contribution of their interrelationship in the domain of equality, freedom and due process jurisprudence extending to all other spheres has been elaborately discussed in the background of case laws where necessary and keeping in view human dignity and welfare, secularism, multiculturalism and economic justice. The current debate on review of the Constitution is also focused with reference to a holistic interpretation of Part III of the Constitution.
The book traverses a new field and it will be of great assistance to constitutional lawyers judges, research scholars and even to the laymen seeking for guidance in respect of their rights and duties as citizens of the state.
