Role of democracy and Islam in the polity has always remained dominant discourse in Pakistani politics. Democracy played vital role in the creation of Pakistan. Nature and functioning of the movement for Pakistan and the invocation of Islam as its raison d'etre places Pakistan as only country in the Muslim World founded explicitly on religious doctrine through popular democratic movement rather than by historical accident or colonial invention. In this perspective it is important to explore and analyze aspirations and expectations of the foundeing fathers of the country regarding the nature and interaction of democracy and Islam. Present study has discussed this phenomenon in the light of primary sources.
