Until not so long ago, the question of human rights used to be raised in connection with the communist countries, some West Asian monarchies, or Latin American or African dictatorships. But times have changed and it now seems to pervade everywhere. With the sudden end of the cold war and the startling transformation of the global strategic situation, democracy and human rights have come to occupy a high place on the new international agenda. India is the most populous democracy in the world and we Indians have been justly proud of our democratic tradition and human rights record. Our Constitution is sacrosanct and our fundamental rights are enshrined in it; they are justiciable and our judiciary, by and large, has been vigilant in upholding them.
