Draw up a list of democratic rights we enjoy today whose origins could be traced to the French Revolution.

Answer :

Some of the democratic rights which we enjoy today whose origins could be traced to the French Revolution are given in the Indian Constitution. They are

i. Right to Equality The Right to Equality has its origin in the French Revolution. In the Indian Constitution, Right to Equality means equality before law, prohibition of discrimination and equality of opportunity in matters of employment.


ii. Right to Liberty The origin of this right can also be traced to the French Revolution. In the Preamble to the Indian Constitution, Right to Liberty or Freedom means ‘freedom of thought, expression, belief, faith and worship’.


iii. Spirit of Fraternity The French Revolution introduced the growth of the spirit of fraternity and social welfare.


In the Indian Constitution, the concept of ‘fraternity’ abolishes untouchability and local or provincial anti-social feelings.


iv. Spirit of Democracy The French Revolution inspired the spirit of democracy which ensured many rights, viz., right against exploitation, right to life, right to vote etc, which we are enjoying today.
