PS-704 ETHNICITY, SECTARIANISM AND NATIONAL INTEGRATION IN PAKISTAN

PS-704 ETHNICITY, SECTARIANISM AND NATIONAL INTEGRATION IN PAKISTAN:

Pakistan like other third world countries faces the problem of national integration. This phenomenon converted into crisis and resulted in its disintegration in 1971. This course will concentrate on the contributing factors such as religion, language and literature, sectarianism and external fear. The causes of failure in the past will be analysed and future guidelines can be formulated for the stability of the country. The structural function theory along with other indigenous factors can be a possible alternative for the national integration in Pakistan.
