What is meant by Equality before Law in the context of the Fundamental Rights?

ICSE Class 9 Indian History World Developments and Civics Ch 2 Fundamental Rights, Fundamental Duties and Directive Principles of State Policy


Equality Before Law:- Equality before law is well defined under the Article 14 of the Constitution which ensures that every citizen shall be likewise protected by the laws of the country. It means that the State will not distinguish any of the Indian citizens on the basis of their gender, caste, creed, religion or even the place of birth. The state cannot refuse equality before the law and equal defense of the law to any person within the territory of India. In other words, this means that no person or groups of people can demand for any special privileges. This right not only applies to the citizens of India but also to all the people within the territory of India.
