THE CHIEF DUTY OF JUDICIARY TO PROTECT HUMAN RIGHTS IN INDIA
Judicial Process is an important armor of judiciary. However, when exercised to protect human rights guaranteed under international law and the treaties to which state is a party, and in the absence of proper executive, legislative action to uphold the rights guaranteed by constitution, it attracts a stern amount of criticism. AThis paper subtly attempts to examine the concept of judicial process or judicial activism employed by Indian judiciary, especially, upholding fundamental human rights of citizens. It further delineates, the limitations within which the judges need to exercise due caution to avoid such criticisms, and, to provide the sought remedial mechanism without crossing the limitations as advocated by the constitution.
