Article 32 - the cornerstone of the Indian Constitution - has been diluted by the Supreme Court. The fundamental right guaranteeing the right to move the Court for enforcement of one's fundamental rights has given way to convenience. Despite the clear legislative intent, as evidenced from the Constituent Assembly Debates, highlighting that no restrictions on this right should be imposed, the Court has used the doctrine of exhaustion of alternative remedies to justify dismissal of petitions under Article 32.
