The past year has proved, and 2017 looks likely to confirm, that democracy may be the best of the worst systems of governing human societies, being of the people and by the people but not necessarily ending up for the people. Democracy, this rule of the “majority”, be it a galloping deficit of three million votes for Donald Trump over those for Hillary Clinton, is determined by the unfair harness of a democratically framed Constitution.

In Britain a popular referendum to leave the European Union by a million votes out of some 33 million could have been swayed by 500,000 voting the other way.

The demonstrations against Mr Trump and his executive orders to ban Muslims from seven designated countries, at airports and in cities around the United States and the world, are manifestations of the minority determination against a slender or even “negative majority” will.

The exercise of democracy in the forthcoming Uttar Pradesh elections has thrown up a very essential, even vital debate. The BJP backed by Modiji himself has declared its intention to throw the weight of the ruling Central power behind the rights of Muslim women, when and if the BJP is elected in the state.

The BJP manifesto supports a petition in the Supreme Court to prevent Muslim men from divorcing their wives through pronouncing the word “talaq” three times. Muslim men have been known to use triple talaq through mobile phones and the Internet. (Has anyone invented an app? Don’t be frivolous yaar, this is a serious subject- Ed.)
