Modern nation states have a common slogan or ambition. That is none other than democracy. But, what democracy is? Is it a mechanism or a way of ruling? Democracy is a way of governing people by respecting their will. Like other countries, Pakistan has also declared it-self a democratic country. It has been trying to make democracy work in Pakistan.
Further, Pakistan is striving to make democracy here pure and free from all kinds of impurities. In this venture, the country is partially successful. There are hopes which reflect that democracy will be the ultimate mode of governance here.
These hopes are emerging educated youth, rise in vote-casting, political vigilance of people and birth of democratic political parties. Among hurdles to democracy in Pakistan, come the illiteracy, extremism, abuse of electoral culture and interference of apolitical forces.
