Pakistan was founded, so that Muslims could live in freedom. So that they could establish a democratic state, but this has not happened. Pakistan is a floundering state which has no governance or leadership! Democracy is said to be important for economic and social development, and it works best when people have the choice to choose their own leader.But illiteracy and corruption has made this word into a joke in Pakistan.

In this environment there was not much progress during a democracy. The Martial law was a more fertile era for national growth. Dictatorship provided more prosperity to the people economically and socially. There was less unemployment, debt burden and more foreign investments came to the country. Hence, martial laws and dictatorships showed better performances than democracy.
