Question:

Chinappa was convicted of torturing his wife for dowry. Satbir was held guilty of practising untouchability. The court did not allow either of them to contest elections. Does this decision go against the principles of democratic elections?

Answer:

The court's order of stopping Chinappa and Satbir from contesting in elections doesn't go against the principles of democratic elections because both have broken the law.
