Abstract: This is a case study that sets out to investigate the relationship between a national identity and the failure of democracy to take root in Pakistan. Since inception, Pakistan has been unable to consolidate an identity making the establishment of democracy untenable. A theoretical segment will firstly establish the correlation between the form a national identity takes and democracy. This will be followed by a case study of Pakistan, which will historically trace the Pakistani identity and how it has curtailed the nation’s quest for democratic governance. The conclusion will recap the argument and briefly detail its implications for democratization in post-colonial states.
