d) Several organizations have given a call for peaceful demonstrations and nationwide strikes in the country to oppose these policies. The government has arrested these leaders.
In this case, the action of the peaceful protestors is democratic, but the actions of the Government are not democratic. In a democracy, citizens have the right to assemble and protest against the government in a peaceful manner. If the government tackles peaceful protestors harshly and arrests them, it is violating the norms of democracy.
e) The government owns the radio and television in the country. All the newspapers have to get permission from the government to publish any news about the government's policies and protests
No, this is not a democracy because, in a democratic country, the press and media are free. Freedom of speech and expression is prevalent in a democracy, and the media exercise this right. If the government censors the press and media, it is no longer a democratic government.
