Pakistans National Identity Founded for religious purposes in 1946 Pakistan is a relatively new country that has grown very quickly Pakistans national identity has been undermined by the separatist religious factions of the Shiiah and Sunni Muslim clans and enhanced by the use of madrasas schools that teach and support Sunni Islam Jinna who was the father of Pakistan wanted a state in which all religions were tolerated and to accommodate people who wanted to live independently because their faith was different from that of the national majority Although Pakistan was a separate homeland for Muslims according to the Lahore resolution and supposedly a country in which all religions were to be tolerated then why the intra-religious conflict between Sunni and Shiiah Muslims which egregiously embarrasses the founding of Pakistan The majority of the Muslim population is Sunni while the Shiiah is the minority The difference between these two sects of Islam is that the Shiiah believe that the Kalafat should be a descendant of the prophet Muhammad while the Sunni believe that this is not in fact the case and that the Kalafat should be the one that is best suited for the duty not necessarily a familial descendant Pakistan was founded on the grounds that the Muslim faith was the minority so does this in fact mean that a new separate country should be established for Shiiahs because they are the minority This sectarian policy undermines Pakistans national identity and because of their differences the Sunni and Shiiah have become entrenched in a power struggle which completely violates the reason for Pakistans foundation Madrasas have played a key role in the struggle between Sunni and Shiiah Muslims Because of the constant struggle between the two sects the government funded Sunni madrasas and integrated them into the national education Due to all the funding supporting Sunni madrasas they have produced large amounts of religious propaganda placing Shiiahs at a severe disadvantage
