I think the above sentence is little misleading.  First Part is OK.
But I believe Democracy exists within its board.

The process to select board does not need to be democratic completely.
for eg: GPLv3 drafting will be failure  if it was decided completely
by  users participating in drafting process. There was commitee ( not
democratically elected ) to analyse and take the needed .

But Democracy within the board is very important. It may be true that
FSF India is not working on  electoral / Representational democracy.
That is Ok.  But Democratic decision making in the board is important
to make it as a democratic structure
