“Assertion of social diversities need not be seen as a source of danger”. Explain the statement with arguments.
- In a democracy, political expression of social divisions is very normal and can be healthy. This allows various disadvantaged and marginal social groups to express . their grievances and get the government to attend to these.
- Expression of various kinds of social divisions in politics, often results in cancelling one another out and thus reducing their intensity. This leads to
strongthening of a democracy.
- But a positive attitude towards diversity and a willingness to accommodate it do not come about easily. People who feel deprived have to fight against the injustices. Such a fight often takes the democratic path, voicing their demands in a peaceful and constitutional manner.
