“Legal Remedies Can Be Sought Not Only For Breach But Fear Of Breach Of Fundamental Human Rights.”
Aside where there is a breach of fundamental human right, one can approach a court and seek legal remedies where there is a likelihood that his/her fundamental human right is about to be breached. So, one does not need to wait for his fundamental human right to be breached before he goes to court to seek remedies.
My authority is Order II Rule 1 of the Fundamental Rights (Enforcement Procedures) Rules, 2009.
