Abstract: Democracy by the philosophy of father of democracy the democracy is government of the people by the people and for the people but the newly independent state of Islamic republic of Pakistan went for choosing its government formation by adopting their former masters the britishers, being a newly created state after Jinah’s death Pakistan was supposed to be functional by the people from their own representatives and the public masses given the power of vote casting which was a system to take public decision ,but unfortunately the Abrahms Lincolin definition of democracy reversed by acting as government of few group/persons for their own benefits and welfare despite of working for the welfare of state.as above said Pakistan adopted democratic form of government which was later found in trouble because of artificial fake democracy, like political parties having strong hold over the nexus of influential hijacked the polling and therefore it lost its real essence .this lead to mistrust of public on their rulers where that situation was obviously a fultoss ball for military who declared martial laws several times and the most interesting thing was that whenever any army general took over and dissolved assemblies the public never resisted because they might had not elected those who were thrown outside ,for real democracy the all prerequisites are to be completed otherwise rigid elections can only break the federation or democratic system can be collapsed for indefinite period as General Zia martial law or Iraqs Sadam Hussein presidency.
