1. Developed nations are in fact “developed” because their constitutions are compatible with the common sense and collective wisdom of their citizens. In an undeveloped nation such as Pakistan this is not the case.

  2. The 1973 Constitution was not approved by a constitutional assembly and also not by referendum.

  3. The 1973 Constitution was drafted by keeping in mind that Pakistan is one nation. In fact, there are five nations in Pakistan (Sindhi, Punjabi, Balochi, Pukhtun and Kashmiri). This truth is recognized that the 1973 Constitution was not a fair social contract between the five nations in Pakistan.

  4. The people of Pakistan do not have the right to directly elect their executive president, governor and district mayor.

  5. The people of Pakistan do not have the right to directly elect their senators.

  6. The senators, MNA and MPA are not elected by a 51% majority vote.

  7. The special seats of Parliament (about 20%) are completely unjust to the system.

  8. Independent members of Parliament have sold their loyalties against the will of their voters.

  9. The senate does not possess any power in the 1973 constitution, making the union between provinces weaker. 

Constitutional Nationalism 


​PAKISTAN’S EXISTENCE AS A STATE 

Do you agree that the 1973 Constitution has NO political justice?

national POLITICAL JUSTICE. (NPJ)

Do you agree that the foundation for Pakistan’s existence as a state is constitutional nationalism? 

​Note: Answers to frequently asked questions.

  1. Currently, there are about 190 nation states in the world. Countries that date back thousands of years like Japan, China, Korea, India and Iran have a strong foundation of territorial nationalism. Most of the 50 European countries were formed on the basis of linguistic nationalism. Few states such as the United States and the first Islamic State of Madina were formed on the basis of constitutional nationalism. Pakistan, being only 65 years old, is too young to have any territorial nationalism and since the country consists of five major languages, linguistic nationalism is impossible. The only other logical choice for Pakistan’s existence as a state is constitutional nationalism.

  2. Unfortunately, the formation of Pakistan on August 14, 1947 came without a constitution.  As a result, on December 16, 1971, Pakistan was divided into two states, Pakistan and Bangladesh. (*Please note that the Constitutions of 1956 and 1962 were not approved through referendum by the people of Pakistan and therefore they have no legitimacy).

  3. The 1973 Constitution is superceded by Islam because of it’s two clauses, “Qarardade-e-Maqasid”  and  “no legislation will be done repugnant to Quran and Sunnah”.  Accordingly, the “Two Nation Theory “ is adopted by the 1973 constitution, making constitutional nationalism the logical foundation of Pakistan.

  4. The 1973 Constitution (social contract) does not provide political justice to the five regions of Pakistan (Punjab, Sindh, Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Kashmir). This lack of political justice has made the constitution structurally defective and unable to hold itself during the military coups of 1977, 1999 and 2007.

  5. The political instability of Pakistan is a result of the absence of a constitution (1947-1973) and now the structurally defective constitution (1973-present). In order to move towards political justice and bring unity in Pakistan, the need for constitutional reforms must be accepted through referendum and the uneffective “blame game” between politicians and military generals must end.

  6. The American, French and Bolshevik Revolutions were all practical manifestations of the Islamic Revolution. They transformed the political, social and economic systems in those regions. Logically, humanity does not need anymore revolutions. To achieve change, nation-states can only reform their constitution. 

Political justice

WHAT IS POLITICAL JUSTICE?

​NPJ is the right of the people to fairly and independent government. Therefore, if the people of a country are electing their executive and legislative branches separately by a direct vote with over 50% majority, the country has 100% national political justice. Given this criteria, below is a ranking of countries:

The 1973 constitution has no political justice 

​Vision for Pakistan


Constitutional Amendment (addition after Qarardade-e-Maqasid)

  1. “Political Truth and Reconciliation Amendment”A.This truth is recognized that Pakistan was born on August 14, 1947 without a constitution. It is also recognized that the constitution of 1956, 1962 has not legitimacy because these constitutions were not approved by the direct vote of the people of Pakistan (referendum).

  2. The truth is recognized that that on December 16, 1971, the separation of Pakistan into two countries was because Pakistan was running without a constitution. So it is concluded that General Ayyub Khan, Z.A. Bhutto, Sheikh Mujeeb and General Yayya Khan are not responsible for the break of Pakistan. The fundamental reason is recognized as the absence of a constitution.

  3. This truth is recognized that the 1973 Constitution was not approved by a constitutional assembly and not approved by a referendum. The 1973 Constitution was drafted by keeping in mind that Pakistan is one nation. In fact, there are five nations in Pakistan (Sindhi, Punjabi, Baluchi, Pukhtun and Kashmiri). This truth is recognized that the 1973 Constitution was not a fair social contract between the five nations in Pakistan. This was the the fundamental reason that Pakistan suffered three military coups (1977, 1999 & 2007). It is concluded that ZA Bhutto, General Zia ul Haq, Nawaz Sharif, and General Musharraf are not responsible for the military coup. It is concluded that the 1973 Constitution needed major reforms/amendments by referendum.
