New Delhi: Democracy is in danger… This voice has been raised by the opposition parties in India for some time now. Its echo was also heard in the Lok Sabha elections 2024. Even after the election results, there was a noise of democracy and constitution being in danger. Amidst this protest, a report has come from the Pew Research Center. The American think tank has conducted a survey in 31 big and powerful countries of the world to find out whether the people there are happy with the democratic system or not. India is also included in this survey. The interesting thing is that in the countries where questions are raised on India's democracy, the people there are much more unhappy.

Just look at this report

In countries like America, Britain, Canada, Germany and Australia, more than half of the population is not happy with their democracy. The powerful country America is called the oldest democracy in the world and according to this survey report, more than half of the population there is unhappy with its democratic system. Only 31 percent of the people there are happy with the democratic system. The situation is also very bad in Canada. Only 52 percent of the people there are happy with democracy. Half of the population of Mexico is also unhappy.
Let's go to India
India is at the second position in Asia as well as in the whole world. In this survey report, only one country is ahead of India, Singapore. In terms of population, no one can compete with India. In the world's largest democracy, 77 percent people have expressed satisfaction with the democratic system. Singapore is at the top of this list where only a little more than India, i.e. 80 percent people are happy with the democratic system of their country. 64 percent people in Thailand and 51 percent people in Malaysia are happy with the democratic system of their country.

The number of angry people increased in 3 years
According to this survey, the condition of powerful and developed countries has worsened in the last few years. In the year 2021, 66 percent of the population of Canada was happy with the democratic system, but within 3 years it has declined by 14 percent. In Britain, during the same period, 60 percent of the population was satisfied, now it has come down to 39 percent. In America, 41 percent of the people were happy with their democratic system, but in 2024 this number came down to 30. This is the post-Corona era where many countries are seen struggling on many issues. On the democratic as well as economic front.
