SODOM & GOMORRAH: More than half of the people polled in Pakistan responded negatively to democracy in Pakistan.
The BBC survey was conducted on about 5,000 Pakistanis who were between the ages of 18 and 29. Almost all of them responded by saying that Pakistan was moving in the wrong direction, signalling a vast pessimism present in the young people of that country.
The poll was conducted since about 30% of registered voters in Pakistan are under the age of 30 and the BBC expects them to have a significant impact on the election which is slated to be held in May. Respondents said that the most trusted institution in the country was the military and that Sharia law and military rule were both more favorable than democracy.
In May, we might see Pakistan vote against voting.
