as for democracy
The "largest democracy in the world" does not have a clean human rights
records. Every year, thousands of people are imprisoned for political reasons, often without charges of trials. Torture and ill-treatment are common,
and hundreds have died in custody. Hundreds more are victims of extra-judicial executions or forced "disappearances". Armed groups commit grave
human rights violations, including killings, tortures and rapes, with impunity.
