    right to?

    1- Everyone has the right (for-with-to-in) their own beliefs.


    I will choose (to) but the meaning of the sentence isn't clear,right?

    Your choice of "to" is correct. Why do you think the meaning of the sentence isn't clear?

    thanks

    It isn't clear because there is no verb after to.

    Re: right to?

    **Neither a teacher nor a native speaker.**

    Right to = verb.

    It's not like: "to + verb"
    Everyone has the right to live their own life.
    Everyone has the right to their own life. -> Similar to your sentence.
    (I changed the sentences a bit, but only to show you the "right to" difference.)

    Cheers!

    Not a teacher.

    There is an implied "have" or "hold" as in "everyone has a right to (have/hold) his own opinions."
