Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Pakistan is one of the world’s only two nation-states that were created on the basis of religion – the second one being Israel. Yet, while giving his very first Presidential Speech to the Constituent Assembly of Pakistan on August 11, 1947 Muhammad Ali Jinnah, founder of the country declared: “You are free; you are free to go to your temples, you are free to go to your mosques or to any other place or worship in this State of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion or caste or creed -- that has nothing to do with the business of the State.”
What course the country in respect of religion had to take, how the initial phases of state-formation responded to and dealt with the tricky question, what was the role of religious (political) parties in the formation of Pakistan and how subsequently they managed to emerge as key players in Pakistani politics, what was the role of military regimes, especially that of Gen. Zia ul Haq (1979-1987) in bringing about an Islamist culture in country, how the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979 and later the Terrorist Attack on America on Sep 11, 2001, helped to shape the Islamist mindset in the country.
Dealing with these and some other vital questions like how and in which ways Islam in Pakistan is different from Saudi Arabia, Iran, Afghanistan, and even India, we will study the profile and itinerary of the country under the followings headings:
• The Two-Nation Theory
• Role of Religious Parties in the Formation of Pakistan
• Pakistan: Question of Religion in the Formative Years.
• Bhutto Era: 1972-1977 – Paving the Way for Islamization
• Islamization under Zia ul Haq’s Martial Law – 1979-1987
• Gen: Musharraf 1999-2008 – ‘Enlightened Islam’ or Talibanization
• Implementation of Shariah Law:
o Blasphemy Law and Minorities
o Hudood Law and Women
• Tampering With History: The Islamization of curricula
• Literary Responses to the Process of Islamization/Islamism: ‘Movement of the Islamic Literature’ vs. ‘Resistance Literature.’
