Everybody has the right to protest, but not at the cost of my freedom-say 'NO' to Harthals
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
The 'HARTAL' is a great challenge against 'The Constitution of India'. The constitution guarantees every citizen of India, the right of freedom.
Right to Freedom
All citizens shall have the right—
(a) to freedom of speech and expression;
(b) to assemble peaceably and without arms;
(c) to form associations or unions;
(d) to move freely throughout the territory of India;
(e) to reside and settle in any part of the territory
(g) to practise any profession, or to carry on any
occupation, trade or business.
-- Quoted from The Constitution of India
While the constitution guarantees the protestors the freedom of speech and expression,freedom to assemble, to form associations or unions; it guarantees something to me too. How can a political party stop me from moving freely? How can it deny practicing my profession?
The worst condition occurs when people who support 'hartal', stop vehicles on roads. They stop even the emergency services, like the ambulance. There are cases of patient's death because of being trapped in a 'hartal'. These 'hartal' may be called by silly political parties for silly reasons, which never affect the common people.
According to 'The Constitution of India', the fundamental rights can be infringed only during a state of emergency. And all other practices of restricting citizen's freedom are direct violations of 'The Constitution of India'.
Apart from this, the protestors destroy the public properties, cause a large loss to the economy of the country directly and indirectly by denying people to work.
So, I request all of you to support this petition towards freedom.
