PostSubject: IDP----ISLAMIC DEMOCRATIC PARTY---1   Thu Apr 10, 2008 12:47 pm

Explanation of the IDP programmed for the change of socio-political system.

Q.1. Why one more new party, in present of many parties in Pakistan?

A.1. Quaid-e-Azam gave us a separate home land by the will of Almighty Allah on 14th August 1947. The Muslims got a separate country, where the Islamic laws are accepted. And the Muslims live in the Islamic atmosphere. But after getting independence since 54 years, the sacrifices of those killed in getting Pakistan looks futile. After Quaid-e-Azam and Liaquat Ali Khan death, the ruling parties want to make their voters their subordinates and create disturbance by the name of language, religion and nationality, which directly led to the hate among society.

In democratic societies, political parties play a significant role in articulating citizens' aspirations. Upon gaining people's support and electoral trust, they serve as a vital link between the state and society. However, Pakistan's elitist political scene portrays a totally different picture. There are over 90 fringe political parties cherishing religious and nationalist ethos and less than a dozen mainstream political parties struggling for breathing space to survive. Though the country appears to be fertile land for growth of political parties, owing to multiple factors, very few would fit into any strict definition of a proper political organization.

Political parties in Pakistan have remained underdeveloped, courtesy the low level of development of Pakistani society, authoritarian political culture, and an imbalance of power between the powerful state and weak political institutions. Consequently, political parties have failed to contribute substantially towards democratizing the Pakistani state and society. Presently, most of the parties are passing through a critical phase of their existence.

Since Pakistan’s inception, the combination of self-interest and Islamic politics has complicated the problem of building a political organization with broad responsibilities to the larger society.

Since the 1950s, the Islamisation of Pakistan has been sustained not only by the religious parties but more so by the mainstream parties and the military who have always used the religious card as a convenient tool to garner public sympathy and secure legitimacy for their regimes. The Muslim League used Islam as a political tool during the freedom struggle to bring the Muslims together against the Indian National Congress and its vision of an Independent India. After 1947, the interference of the clergy in politics or their utility in politics has been enhanced in a structured manner in Pakistan by the ruling elite on whom the responsibility of shaping Pakistan's political future rested.

On the other hand, the ethnic factor has played an important role in Pakistan's political history. Pakistan, being a multiethnic state, needed to evolve an adequate system of representation and a just and equitable distribution of power and resources in order to maintain ethnic peace and harmony. However, the dominance of the state structure, especially the bureaucracy and the military, by one or two ethnic groups, tended to augment ethnic tensions and violence. This practice is still on rise.

The progressive parties tried their best to impose the western culture and traditions in Pakistan. This led to the misfortune of people. They never win the hearts and minds of people.

It is the demand of time to empower the people. In this way, we can face the attacks from internal and external elements. It is not a time for sloganeering. There is a need for skill development. Pakistan should be equipped with modern skills to meet the future challenges. The dilemma is that:

• political parties working in the name of democracy did not trust common Pakistanis for sharing power,
• political parties working in the name of Islam did not trust common Muslims for sharing power,
• provincial Nationalist parties did not trust common men in the province for sharing power,

So, who will trust the common Pakistani whom the country belongs to?
According to the vision of the father of the nation, Pakistan was to be a democratic country based on the concept of equal citizenship for all Pakistani, irrespective of their colour and creed, as per Jinnah's vision.



Q.2. Why the IDP wants the Decentralization of power at grass route level, how it works?

A.2. Since the creation of Pakistan the Pakistani people are left at distant from the corridor of power so that the ruling elite can do what they wanted to do in favour of their interest, leaving the Pakistani people at the mercy of circumstances. As this policy is denial of right of Pakistani people to rule their country according to their aspiration and desire to built this country, which can provide equal opportunity to all without any discrimination for the establishment of welfare society. Only the society base on tolerance, equality and justice can be the real guarantee for the prosperous and strong Pakistan there for your intention is invited to the crucial movement which could be the point of distraction or disaster.

Therefore, IDP is submitting herewith, the substitute management structure before you, which not only empower the Oppressed, but provide them justice and complete safeguard. This also leads to the prosperity. Islamic Democratic Party is committed to the establishment of a welfare state in a country where people can have political freedom, economic opportunity and social justice. Where the provinces will be based on democratic division and centre, on the democratic provinces. As, a comprehensive overhauling of our society is required in order to deliver the benefits of a welfare state to the masses. This means that the state must play an activist role in the economic and social revival of our country.

The main power place of this management structure is that place, from where councillors are elected. Despite of election from any part of division, the councillor will have to obey the majority decision of the committee. This committee will include the people from different part of its voting constituency. The committee will take all decision pertaining to the area with majority and at the same time, look around the performance of the councillor together with providing guidance to the councillor. The councillor will report to the divisional counsel about the majority decision for the development work in his area to be included, whenever the divisional council will decide for that at divisional level. The councillor will be answerable to the divisional council as well to the area committee for his performance.

The entire elected councillor in the division will be the members of Division Council. They will select a mayor by majority votes. Mayor will be a head of Divisional Council. He will supervise the activities of Divisional Council and will be answerable to the council and masses thru media. The decision power will be performed by the majority votes of Divisional Council. Members of the Divisional Council will arrange a Mushawratee/Advisory Committee, comprising of experts from different walk of life, intellectuals and religious leaders. This committee will give technical advice to the Mayor for development works, while the religious leaders will be responsible to maintain unity and peace in the area.

The divisional council will pass on their decision to the mayor then. Mayor will get advice and assistance from the Mushawratee Committee the Mayor will then again present it in council for approval of the majority council member, once approved by the council then masses will be informed through media for their valuable opinion, objection or alternative if any. The matter will then pass throw the advisory committee and come to mayor .The mayor will submit the plan again to the council members for final approval and implementation.



Q.3 How, the elected member of the council and organization within the division will be make answerable?

The main power place of this management structure is the place, from where councillors are elected. Despite of election from any part of division, the councillor will have to obey the majority decision of the committee. This committee will include the people from different part of its voting constituency and known as executive committee of the councillor. The committee will take all decision pertaining to the area with majority, under the councillor but, at the same time, look around the performance of the councillor together with advisory to the councillor. The councillor will report to the divisional counsel about the majority decision for the development work in his area to be included, whenever the divisional council will decide for development work at divisional level. The councillor will be answerable to the divisional council as well to the area committee for his performance.

The services organization working under divisional council or within the division such as provincial or central and involved in providing services to the people of the division. That organization should be answerable for that purpose to the divisional council, they are accountable and answerable for their services in the area of the divisional council .The divisional council will constitute committee from the council members, consisting upon representation from all the district of that division .The divisional head of the organization will be accountable to the committee and committee will be responsible and accountable to the council. Because the committee members are from all the district of the division they too are answerable to their district and to the people of their constituencies. The Islamic Democratic Party has been consistently advocating the creation of vibrant local self government institutions; this will bring government closer to the people and make it more responsive and accountable.
