The conflict about the Jinnah’s Vision for Pakistan – II

Azhar Aslam & Shaista Kazmi In the part I of this series we have argued that while the identity of Pakistan is inextricably linked to renaissance and revival of Islam (A beginning from the Original). We also believe and in the course of these articles we intend to demonstrate that Jinnah’s Pakistan was neither Secular nor theocratic, but simply Islamic. Jinnah talked of Islam along with the modern notion of the state, constitutionalism, civil and political rights and equal citizenship irrespective of religion or any other consideration. He truly believed these ideals to represent Islam. Jinnah viewed Pakistan as a modern, democratic state underpinned by universal ethical principles of Islam.
