“Rights are necessary for the sustenance of a democracy”. Give arguments to support the statement.
Rights are necessary for the sustenance of a democracy because :
- Every citizen has the right to vote and the right to be elected to the government.
- For democratic elections to take place, it is necessary that citizens should know the right to express their opinion, form political parties and take part in politics.
- We need rights to protect minorities from the oppression of the majority. Rights can be used when things go wrong.
