People have the right to demand protection ___ their business against a bandit group trying to grab it.
I see both of and for being used with protection. Although in many sentences it’s clear to judge which preposition sounds better but in the above sentence both of and for sound correct,so I am not able to decide which preposition is to be used here.
You're right, either sounds fine. I prefer for, but it's a question of style not grammar.
However you can avoid the dilemma by restructuring the sentence:
People have a right to demand their businesses be protected from extortion by a bandit group operating in that area.
