Should Sports Be Declared A Fundamental Right? Discuss.

The Supreme Court has agreed to hear a PIL seeking its direction to the Centre and states to make sports compulsory in the educational curriculum from elementary to higher education and declare right to sports as a part of fundamental rights on the line of right to education.


Why this direction

  • The bench passed the order on a petition filed by a law student, Kanishka Pandey, who approached the apex court through his advocate pleading with the court to intervene and direct the governments to encourage sports culture in educational institutions. 
  • The petitioner contended that inculcating sports values among children and the young generation would bring and promote patience, comity, friendship and remove several social evils prevailing in society.
  • The petition submitted that sports should be made a fundamental right under Article 21A (right to education).

What does it mean?

If sports is treated as part of fundamental rights, it will make government authorities liable to put in place sports infrastructure at all levels of education

Sports are really very important as they increase our physical and mental ability. Sports make people so zestful and so sports should definitely be made as one of the fundamental rights.
