Citizens & Minorities

 

Democratic systems are  supposed to guarantee  rights and protections for minorities. In this video Mohamed ElBaradei and Rajmohan Gandhi talk about the need for better governing systems that protect minorities. They recall episodes in history when minorities suffered dreadful persecution and violence at the hands of the majority. They underscore the need for equal protections for not only all citizens of a state, but all members of the human family  regardless of religion, ethnicity, race, linguistic group, legal status, and other lines of difference.
