    ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Military’s publication, Hilal, has sought nation’s commitment to Quaid’s vision of democratic Pakistan where our own culture is developed and “principles of Islamic social justice” find free play.

    In its latest publication, a few days before the 138th birth anniversary of Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the magazine in its editorial “Quaid’s Pakistan” said that the Father of the Nation had a vision for Pakistan and expected this country to become a free and powerful nation; a democracy based on equality, justice and fair-play to everybody. With ISPR spokesman Maj Gen Asim Saleen Bajwa as Hilal’s patron-in-chief, the editorial focused on Quaid’s October 11, 1947 address to government officers at Karachi in which Jinnah wanted Pakistan to develop our own culture and uphold the principles of Islam.

    According to Hilal, Jinnah in his speech said, “The establishment of Pakistan for which we have been striving ... is, by (the) grace of God, an established fact today, but the creation of a State in which we could live and breathe as free men and which we could develop according to our own lights and culture and where principles of Islamic social justice could find free play.”

    The editorial added, “Pakistan is faced with numerous challenges today. While we are up against multiple threats from external enemies, our security forces and society together are also confronted with internal threats.”

    Talking about the challenge of terrorism and extremism facing the nation, the military magazine said, “At this juncture, any proclivity towards religious extremism, sectarianism, ethnicity and linguistic poles is deviation from Quaid’s vision of Pakistan.”

    “To Jinnah, Pakistan meant a strong state with a multi-layered society, and each citizen contributing to its success. Quaid believed in strong nationalism and always advocated for working beyond narrow confines of self-interest and parochial pursuits”.

    The magazine quoted another speech of the Quaid to discourage regional divides. It referred to Quaid’s April 12, 1948 speech of Quaid wherein he said, “Out duty to the state takes us a stage beyond provincialism. It demands a broader sense of vision, and (a) greater sense of patriotism. Our duty to the State often demands that we must be ready to submerge our individual or provincial interests into the common cause for common good. Our duty to the State comes first; our duty to our province, to our district, to our town and to our village and ourselves comes next.”

    Assuring that the country’s defence capability against conventional threat is also potent enough to thwart any adventuring, the editorial hoped that after having secured full peace from the menace of terrorism and violent extremism, Pakistan will be set to follow the ascending trajectory of progress and prosperity. It added that the country is endowed with enormous natural resources and resilient human capital to play a significant role in the age of globalisation and information revolution. It added, “All we need is: remain committed to the Quaid’s vision of Pakistan”, and concluded, “Quaid-i-Azam shall always remain a role model for us to follow.”

    Time to readjust our trajectory. This country can only survive from Mullahs if we work for stronger democracy.

    basically it just lays a few rules for the person who is to become head of the state, it limits his power so that he can exerise his authority INSIDE THE CIRCLE AND LAWS OF ISLAM, e.g he cannot make something that is forbidden by Islam, legal such as drinking.

    They put Islam before it. It is bathed in the water of Zam Zam and a few incantations recited.

    Your definition is as vague as child demanding caliphate in Pakistan. If we accept your definition at face value, Sood khori will become haram and whole Pakistani economy will collapse

    The funniest part is that the fellow seems to have ignored that the whole idea of democracy means being able to define what laws you wish to govern yourself by.. Islamic laws, The Ten commandments or otherwise.

    ahh yes, sood khori, you have touched a sensitive topic you see we need a Law on this too, as todays "Interest" is different from the one 1400 years ago, most of the Intrest is given by the banks, who invest it and give the Profit to you, so IN MY VIEW this can be legalized as the sood khori which was Haraam was due to the fact that it put too much pressure on the already poor person, but here the Intrest is given by the bank not by the person, you see?
    in short that interest is allowed in MY VIEW in which the loss i shared as well as the profit between the two persons

    like i said adding the word Islamic binds the authority so that you can make only laws as long as they dont go against the Laws of Islam

    Well eventually it would have to be shut down I mean interest other wise people will rise up and do it on there own so better state starts working on establishing alternate structure as soon as possible or don't cry if they face bigger trouble than TTP soon. As Muslims what matter most is what ALLAH and his RASOOL SAW wanted any other leader what ever he said would be judged in light of Quran and Sunnah.

    Sorry that is clear when you use the term Islamic Democracy that laws will be from Islam and Islam only.

    Another irony is no one can prove with extreme certainty democracy is unislamic. It's has become a catchphrase Western democracy is haram. Only problem is we have weak enforcement of Article 62/63. Enforce it with extreme bias, you will get Sadiq, Amin rulers
