Is there an impending threat to Democracy in India? Is it safe or is it in the danger zone?
It is a hot topic under discussion in different forums as to whether the democratic fabric of India is under a threat. We might have different opinions. Let us discuss the issue without bringing in our political affiliations. Let us base our views on the basic thread provided by our Constitution. Let us have a fair and unbiased discussion without any personal or political attacks and argue on the base of changes that the society is facing and analyze whether the same amounts to a degradation of the values assured by our Constitution.
Sometimes when I watch certain news channel I feel that the news that's been portrayed in front of the public is not genuine but exaggerated and biased. During the phase of demonetization, the channel which displayed both sides of the situation was banned from airing. People who expressed their opinion were arrested. People are getting shot just because they are practicing their religion.
Just a few days back, infants died in hospitals due to lack of oxygen. But now the minister has totally denied that is the cause even when everyone knows the truth.
Where are we heading to? Is there a threat to our freedom ensured by our Constitution? Is our Democratic fabric safe? Please discuss.
