With a population of over 1.3 billion people – and growing – India is the world’s largest democracy, and the second largest country on the planet after China. With a score of 7.81 on the democracy index, India is also classed as a flawed democracy. At the 2014 general election – the largest in the world, Narendra Modi’s BJP won the most seats and went on to form a government. The country is due to go back to the polls in 2019.

What does that mean and where does India’s caste system fit into a democracy?

It's one of four categories that countries can be assigned to after being given a score on various things, civil liberties, free elections, levels of corruption etc. i) Full Democracy, ii) Flawed Democracy iii) Hybrid Regime iv) Authoritarian

The definition for flawed democracies are states in which "elections are fair and free and basic civil liberties are honoured but may have issues (e.g. media freedom infringement). These nations have significant faults in other democratic aspects, including underdeveloped political culture, low levels of participation in politics, and issues in the functioning of governance."

Not perfect labels by any means (the US is classed as a flawed democracy too).

Can you count the UK as a flawed democracy after BREXIT? As in it was democratically voted for, but hasn't happened/isn't happening

😜😅

I am half joking.

I'd rather have the clueless, probably half-crooked Venkys than watch Rovers become another tool for a regressive, reactionary, dictatorial regime to get fools to look at them more favorably. Regardless of financial support. YMMV.

They've gotten away with it, as it initially appears to be a shirt sponsor. However, there are probably other less publicised ways the two work together.

You've got a point. The inflight entertainment on Qatari Airways is very Barca heavy.
