Freedom to hold meetings is important to _______________.


ANSWER

Mobilize public support to a cause


SOLUTION
Every person has the freedom to assemble peacefully without arms. However, the State can levy restrictions in the interest of public order and the sovereignty and integrity of the country. Citizens have the freedom to hold meetings, rallies, and demonstrations on any issue. They may want to discuss a problem, exchange ideas, mobilize public support to a cause, or seek votes for a candidate or party in an election. This is based on the right to freedom act. The very definition of the term democracy is depicted through this act. As citizens can hold meetings, rallies, and demonstrations, they can also protest against the government,  So, the equality and the right to question is also depicted. At a very basic level, the right to freedom is depicted. Hence, Option A is correct. The rest of the clauses are not the primary aim of holding meetings, hence, incorrect.
