Foundations of constitution making in Pakistan: A revisionist discourse
Author(s): Dr. Mazher Hussain, Dr. Shahid Hassan Rizvi, Dr. Aftab Hussain Gillani, Saeed Ahmad
Abstract: M. A. Jinnah (1876-19480) himself proved a great constitutionalist. He clearly drew the future contours of the proposed country’s constitution a decade ago with his speeches and statements he made on different occasions. However, the politicians of different strata interpreted them differently in the wake of their vested interests; rightists, leftists, and secularists were significant of these stakeholders. One can revisit these ideals from the eye of a ‘revisionist’ and reinterpret the subsequent discourse accordingly. The ongoing discussion is a careful of study of the constitution framing pursuits for the first constitution of 1956 from the revisionist view point.
