Are these restrictions on the right to freedom justified?
Question.

Are these restrictions on the right to freedom justified? Give reasons for your answer.

(a) Indian citizens need permission to visit some border areas of the country for reasons of security.

(b) Outsiders are not allowed to buy property in some areas to protect the interest of the local population.

(c) The government bans the publication of a book that can go against the ruling party in the next elections.


Solution:

Restriction ‘a’ is justified to protect the citizens from loss of life or property, but ‘b’ and ‘c’ are not justified as ‘b’ infringes on the right to freedom and ‘c’ violates the right to freedom of speech.
