Flaws in our democratic system

Mahnoor Bajwa

The subcontinent was ruled by the British using a democratic system. Muslims tried hard to attain a separate homeland and succeeded on August 14, 1947. Newly existing state due to lack of proper structure painted their way of governing (democracy) upon themselves. It’s the system in which the majority of the people choose their representatives through general elections. Basically, the main purpose of this system is to know about the needs and problems of country men and solve them by using appropriate methods to raise the living standards of people as well as the standard of state in the whole world. It’s the best and the most successful way of governing but unfortunately, it is not successful in Pakistan as it should be. Continue reading “Flaws in our democratic system”

A pre-COVID heedful approach towards on-campus harassment in GCU

Najla Shoaib
