India has always been a supporter of democracy and its ethics. But recently, in Freedom House’s Freedom in World Report, India has not been seen as democratic what it used to be before. Law always remains the core aspect of how a country governs and in India’s changing conditions; various paradigms need re-evaluation in light of recent activities.
