    India is a democratic country but when unwanted protests are organized, the Indian Police take appropriate action to arrest the politicians and their supporters. When such protests are organized with the connivance of politicians or their supporters in Sri Lanka with poles, stones and other weapons against another peaceful justifiable demonstration or against a religious group or place of worship or a buissnes establishment of a minority citizen; the Sri Lankan Police or the government takes no action. Why is this double standard in Sri Lanka ???
