Abstract

The inquiry in hand deals with the political thought of a religio-political party—the Jamm’iyyat Ulama-i-Pakistan (JUP) which once contributed to safeguard the very ideology of the country by timely sensing the subsequent sway of Socialism or Communism as well as Command Enlightened Moderation. The different positions analyzed deal with the real questions of state and society construction as per aspirations of JUP. As a result one can gauge the political as well as ethical preferences of this religio-political party with greater accuracy. More importantly, through systematic comparison, one gets a clear and coherent view of the vision and thought pattern of a specific mindset of a group of scholars and politicians through political activities of the JUP. The period selected is the representative one of the functioning of this religio-political party.
