What does the Constitution say with regard to equality? Why do you think it is important for all people to be equal?
The Constitution of India has provided several rights to its citizen to ensure that everybody is treated equally. All the citizens are free to pursue the religion of their choice. The constitution also provides equal opportunities to all the people and everyone is free to pursue government jobs. Untouchability is an offence and special provisions have been made to safeguard the rights of minor communities.
India is a diverse country and for every religion to flourish, it is required that inequality of any kind should be eradicated from the society. Equality will give equal opportunities to people of all the religious communities to express themselves.
