a breif comment on class nature of indian constitution

I think we should look at the concept oh human right in it's proper political historical and theoritical context the human rights discourse or the denial of human rights in India should be seen in the context of incomplete modernities or fractured modernity of the post colonial trajectory probably that is why many of the communist parties talk about democratic revolution in India the entire demands of the Human rights in india are nothing different from the declarations of the french revolution and american bill of rights adopted centuries ago afrticle 21 of Indian constitution doesn't make any sense as long as there are strong feudal remants in the country which makes a mockery of the french revolution the american bill of rights united nations charter and the Indian constitution therefore before we talk about human rights all the liberal democrats and socialist revolutionaries should join hands to wipe out feudal remanents that means giving a decisive fights to patriarchy and bramanical order then only India can be launched intro modernist trajectory otherwsie the whole discourse of human right does not make any sense it can be a good NGO career it is also high time we seriously look at the greatness of the indian constitution in any any class society its constitution will also be a class document the postcolonial capital accumelation was carried through the instrumentalities of the indian constitution despite the pretentious declaration of the directive priciples of state policies therefore under socialism the present discourse on human rights will lose all meanings because the entire present discourse on human rights is is centred around the capitalist nation states guarenteeing the rights of citizens without any way affecting the class power if we can separate class power from state power Ralph miliband explained years ago
