The work has evaluated the hypothesis that government without minority electorates’ requirement does not protect the minorities against violence, riots and aggression from majority. There is a critical view on Indian political system which has been evaluated and compared with Lijphart’s theory of consensual democracy and Horowitz theory of Majoritarism. Some significant points which support clashes in Indian societies have been found. These points are evaluated by the two mentioned theoretical approaches. The other evaluated theoretical assumption in this work is based on Wilkinson hypothesis which describe relationship between party competition and a state''s response to anti-minority polarization and violence. Wilkinson supports Lijphart and Horowitz assumption of office holding and proportional representation. Without that the riots and violence against minorities have bigger intensity. The work has compared selected cases of governments’ and parties’ behaviour in Indian states using Wilkinson’s and Varshney’s data and enlarged them by new data collection based on Times of India records.
