Quaid-i-Azam was clear in his saying that religion had no share in Government affairs but since the demise of Quaid-i-Azam various religious political parties have been formed in the name of Islam who got only 5% of vote rate but are free to make or break Govts. by their tilting vote rate. All of us are muslims and there is no need of Islamic parties who play hooky with politics in the hope of getting one or two ministerial appointments. There ought to be two party system in the Govt. with parties competing with each other for development work in the country. Religious parties on the fringes have not played any envious role in the body politics of Pakistan other than causing dissention and creating confusion in the public mind in the true interpretation of Islam which has become the bane of Pakistan in tearing the nation apart by their extremist agendas. It is time that we got rid of religious political parties in the country.
