How do social divisions affect politics? Give two examples.
(i) If social division is of such type that people see their identities in singular and exclusive terms, it becomes very difficult to accommodate. . In India, many people vote based on religion or caste. It often leads to electoral win of dishonest and corrupt leaders.
(ii) If rulers are willing to share power and accommodate the reasonable demand of minority community, social division becomes less threatening. For example, in India because of secular characteristics, there is no division of country on the basis of religion after independence.
