Freedom of the press and political and civil rights are fundamental principles. Any government may distinguish which materials are public or protected from disclosure to the public based on the classification of information as sensitive, classified, or secret and being otherwise protected from disclosure due to the relevance of the information to protecting the national interest. Many governments are also subject to sunshine laws or freedom of information legislation that defines the ambit of national interest. The data analysis showed that India's constitution is better based on protecting the citizens' political and civil rights. This study will compare and contrast Afghanistan and India regarding political and civil rights as it will answer the research questions. Content analysis will be the methodology of this study. The research is based on analyzing the available data on the Freedom House website.


Freedom of the press, civil rights, Political rights, Afghanistan, India.
