  • President Zia also increased the involvement of Islam in the Pakstani Government in a 1984 Referendum where he asked the people of Pakistan if they were in favour of the enforcement of Sharia or Islamic Law. The result of this Referendum can be seen in the Shariat or Islamic Court, which enforces laws relating to Islam and assesses whether State laws comply with Islam.
    Next Slide
  • The adherence to Islam is written into the Preamble of the constitution in the ‘name of Allah, the most Beneficient, the most Merciful’, and, there are several articles that prescribe to specific provisions laid down by the state for the Muslims of Pakistan.
    Next slide
  • Initially, Islam was established as the state ideology as a means of distinguishing Pakistan’s identity as separate from predominantly Hindu India. Thus, Islam was used as the basis for the creation and the unification of a separate state, but it was not expected to serve as a model for government. In contemporary Pakistan, Islam remains an important element of national identification and has become a central issue in Pakistan’s politics (Blood 1994; Haqqani 2004, pp.87-9).

    Next slide
  • While there are many areas of conflict in Pakistan, a major source relates to an ideological division over the role of Islam in national life. Some factions argue that the Islamic ideology is essential to bind its culturally diverse people together.

    However, others argue that the insistence on Islamic ideology, in opposition to regional demands as expressed in secular and cultural idiom, has alienated regional groups and eroded national unity (Pakistan 2008).

    Next slide
  • The ideology of Islam is deeply rooted in Pakistan’s history with close links to the ambitions of the Pakistani military and the Pakistani elite’s world view (Haqqani 2004, p.85).

    Over the years, military rule has fomented the religious military presence in Pakistan, encouraging political and radical Islam to the point where Islamists have gained disproportionate influence over the country’s overall direction.

    In this way, Islam is being used as the means of achieving a common bond and unity in a country where the population remains fractured by ethnic and linguistic differences (Haqqani 2004, pp.91-96).

    Next slide
  • Thus, while Islamic ideology remains important in Pakistan, the implications exacerbated by military rule and fundamentalism complicate Pakistan’s political situation and reduce its ability to be identified as a functional modern state.
