In the constitutional context Pakistan is an Islamic Republic, a country inhabited by a Muslim majority and other minorities. Though there are many places of worship in reality we have become a godless society; where there is no compassion, no mercy, no sympathy, no love, no sincerity, no affection, no sacrifice, no selflessness, or fairness, there is a complete lack of justice or empathy but there is abundance of ignorance, cruelty, injustice, prejudice, greed, deceit, arrogance, exploitation on all levels. A country which was created in the name of religion has become godless. What happened to the dream of an Islamic welfare country?
