Keywords:Islamic values, democratic values, social justice, alliance, political objectives.
In order to challenge the existing political setup of Pakistan, an alliance of Islamic forces titled Islami Jamhoori Ittehad was formed in year 1988. Leadership of the Ittehad agreed to confront the democratic and socialist agenda many political parties including Pakistan People’s Party. The composition of nine rightist parties was also known as centre-of-right political alliance. Although Pakistan Muslim League, National Awami Party and Jamat-i-Islami apparently presented a moderate standpoint, yet an Islamic identity and provision of Islamic democratic system was presented as the main objective behind the formation of Ittehad. Present study will try to analyze that how a religio-political alliance was mainly motivated by the Islamic values in order to attain political objectives.
