The Indian Government’s paternalistic approach while passing the three controversial farm laws was met with the largest human protest in history during the pandemic.

Political demonstrations are a form of democratic expression in which people or organisations strive to correct perceived injustices in the political system. When a group of people protests, the rest of society joins in, either in favour or in opposition to the group. Many of these protests have aided in the demise of arbitrary views that are not meant for the welfare of the target groups. One such paternalistic approach of the Indian Government while passing the three controversial farm laws was met with the largest human protest in history.
