Some initial questions 1/17/12 GMT 107 - Ayesha Saeed - 3 Why are we studying the role of religion in the politics of Pakistan? Religion is a strong social and personal identifier: religion matters to people. To understand and define the identity of Pakistan. To evaluate the current state of affairs: terrorism, unstable political system; shrinking space for plural ideologies. There are two ways of looking at this question: Study it through the lens of principles (secular vs theocratic – the question of the identity of the state) Study it by looking at the purpose and impact of the use of religion in politics.
