European Democracy and Loop Holes
As a Citizen of India, I know what democracy and how this serve the purpose of rule the nation. But from my childhood, I was not very much agreed with definition of secularism and liberalism defined under democracy run by west. I believed that, secularism and liberalism is something which is being a bonding force amongst people but surely it has been used as weapon by many people. I have been a country where minorities and special groups used as a vote bank to get vote or politician and media always victimized them in name of majority. In My Country, every single news related to minority run 24 X 7, but when a person from majority is died in communal violence, media and politician try to hide the news. Now question is that what is actual European democracy and its loop holes.
European democracy : I am not expert in this subject but what can I understand by little knowledge that, democracy is comes against the rule of church. This system allow people to vote for their favorite candidate to rule the country. The things which is defined under this, Freedom of speech, practice and protection of different faith (minor and major), gender equality and fundamental rights of education and opportunity. This sound the perfect idea.
Loop Holes: In theocracy it is impossible to say its a system with loop holes. But lets see few equation:-
Freedom of Speech
For Majority: Use of Freedom of speech is subject of progress and critical examination of faith and secularism.
For Minority: Use of Freedom of speech is subject to attack on their rights for practing faith and protection by govt.
Loop Holes: why not same applicable for majority and why abusing their faith is progress no matter how much few believe into that. doesn’t protection of majority faith is same government and intellectual job.
2. Practice and protection of Faith
For majority: They can practice and protect the faith but when its comes to preference over minorities faith, they have given prime importance over majority. Media shut up majority voice of practice and potrection of faith over minority.
For Minority: Many NGO, Govt, Politician and other liberals and secular are die hard tried to protect the faith of minority. Good !! But then they cross line and support immoral practice of their faith which violet the fundamental rights.
Ex. In India, all Muslims womens are against Triple talaq but secular serving the protection to this regressive practice and opposing united civil code.
See below example in Europe:
Loop Holes: This give the chance to minority to blackmail government for vote bank and majority notice such incident as discrimination by law to them. This is also become politically correct things in name of appeasement of minorities.
3. gender equality
For majority: It is accepted in any secular and democratic majority and most of developed countries has achieved it.
For Minority: Same minority patch in developed countries practice discrimination against women in name of religious freedom and practice. while many secular and liberals praise and protect this regressive practice in name of protection of their faith.
Loop Hole: No right minded person would believe that segregation of men and women in name of gender and some satanic urge of having sex. No one will supports polygamy, discrimination on divorce law etc. even the most absurd thing is that packing a women head to toe in name of modesty. You will find many group protecting this practice in name of religious freedom. Now this very idea used for vote bank technics also.
4. Fundamental rights of education and opportunity
For majority: Laws work on this subject very tightly that all majority must get rights of education and opportunity equally. Nice this is great idea.
For Minority: Same law provide special aid, reservation, special cut off in education and even in India, birth base opportunity to SC/ST/Dalit. This same law whip talk about equality actually discriminate in name of minority social welfare and reservation in name of birth base caste. specialy in India, this has become poltical tools to get vote and stay devide.
Loop Hole: This kind of opposition of fundamental rights in name of special acts and law for minority is discrimination in very idea of democracy. Secularism and liberalism is used as tools to create socialism and communism which propagate the idea for surprising Majority. At last it used to become political correctness and vote bank which is quite dangerous.
I am against any kind of discrimination in society, no matter it has to be do with minority and majorities’. you can not give special privilege to set of group and think others will accept it name of secularism. If there is opportunity it should be divide on merit and hard-work, not based on appeasement laws and practice by politician to take vote bank.
“I just want to ask what is the benefit of democracy/ constitution if its violets its own fundamental rights in name of secularism, liberalism and humanity.
