(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.
Answer 
 (a) It is justified. The security of the country is the first duty of a government, and this cause can stop the people from visiting the border areas.
(b) This action is also justified. The local population may not be financially strong to protect its interests. Outsiders can take away their rights in their own area, so such a step of the government is correct.
(c) Not justified. The publication of a book can only be banned if it disturbs the peace and hurts the sentiments of a section of people, and not on grounds of protecting the ruling party’s prospects in the next election.

Question 7: Manoj went to a college to apply for admission into an MBA course. The clerk refused to take his application and said “You, the son of a sweeper, wish to be a manager! Has anyone done this job in your community? Go to the municipality office and apply for a sweeper’s position”. Which of Manoj’s fundamental rights are being violated in this instance? Spell these out in a letter from Manoj to the district collector.
Answer
To,
The District Collector,
Address___________
Date_______________
Subject- Violation of a Fundamental Right
Respected Sir/Ma’am,
My ‘Right to Freedom to practice’ any profession, or to carry on any occupation, trade or business has been violated. I had applied for an admission into MBA course but my application was refused as my Father works as a sweeper. The reason for the rejection shows class bias of the clerk and violates my Right to a profession. I request you to intervene in the matter and I may take the step further to file an application in Court against the violation of my Right to Freedom.
Thank You Sir/Ma’am.
With Regards,
Manoj

Question 8: When Madhurima went to the property registration office, the Registrar told her. "You can’t write your name as Madhurima Banerjee d/o Α. K. Banerjee. You are married, so you must give your husband’s name. Your husband’s surname is Rao. So your name should be changed to Madhurima Rao." She did not agree. She said "If my husband’s name has not changed after marriage, why should mine?" In your opinion who is right in this dispute? And why?
Answer 
Madhurima Banerjee is right. It is her freedom to choose the surname she want. It cannot be obligated by others to force her to change her surname. The property registration officer has no legal right to ask her to change her name nor the authority to deny her work. She can forward a complaint to Court on the violation of her rights.

Q 9. Thousands of tribals and other forest dwellers gathered at Piparia in Hoshangabad district in Madhya Pradesh to protest against their proposed displacement from the Satpura National Park, Bori Wildlife Sanctuary and Panchmarhi Wildlife Sanctuary. They argue that such a displacement is an attack on their livelihood and beliefs. Government claims that their displacement is essential for the development of the area and for protection of wildlife. Write a petition on behalf of the forest dwellers to the NHRC, a response from the government and a report of the NHRC on this matter.
Answer 
(a)
Letter from the Tribals to NHRC
To,
The Chairman,
National Human Right Commission,
Delhi, India
Date:_____________
Subject: Displacement of Tribals
Respected Sir/Ma’am,
I want to draw your attention to plight of forest dwellers in Satpura National Park, Bori Wildlife Sanctuary and Panchmarhi Wildlife Sanctuary. The government wants to displace these people. The proposal of the government is a violation of human rights of the forest dwellers. It is asking away their right to livelihood and to follow their beliefs. There has been no alternative suggestion by the government with regard to the future of the forest dwellers. We urge you please look into the matter and provide the much required help to these people.
Thank You Sir/Ma’am.
Regards,
Rohan or [Your Name]
Piparia, Hoshangabad
District, Madhya Pradesh or [Your Address]
(b) Response from the Government

  • The government had given a warning to the people two years ago. 
  • There has been an alarming rise in poaching, cutting of trees and killing of wildlife. 
  • Environmental pollution has also increased. 
  • It is the government’s duty to protect the endangered species. 
  • The government has offered compensation and promised rehabilitation in alternatives places. 
  • Offered jobs to the men. 

(c) NHRC’s Report

  • Both sides have a point 
  • The Tribals have tradition, practice and decades of residence behind them. It is their world and life. 
  • Sudden uprooting will leave them emotionally disturbed, turn them into vagabonds and force them into jobs or occupations which they have never followed. 
  • The government is right in its concern for wildlife. It is its duty to save certain species from becoming extinct. Poachers are having a field day, and every day the environment is threatened.

Q. 10. Draw a web interconnecting different rights discussed in this chapter. For example right to freedom of movement is connected to the freedom of occupation. One reason for this is that freedom of movement enables a person to go to place of work within one’s village or city or to another village, city or state. Similarly this right can be used for pilgrimage, connected with freedom to follow one’s religion. Draw a circle for each right and mark arrows that show connection between or among different rights. For each arrow, give an example that shows the linkage.
