This is significant work by Alexa Walz done in 2012 that focusses and traces the impact of religion historically on legislation done in Pakistan. It argues that though Jinnah envisioned Pakistan a secular state, where all citizens regardless of caste, colour, and creed would enjoy equal civil and political rights, however, in the mid-fifties, the state turned finally into an Islamic State. After that, Islam played an essential role in all legislation and politics in Pakistani state and society. This work examines the influence of religion especially on Pakistan legislation and jurisprudence. It will elaborate the procedure of law making, and the effects of Islamic ideology and motivations concerning laws and their implementation.
