Pakistani youth 'favour Sharia law over democracy'

Pakistani youth favour Sharia law over democracy, a British Council survey suggests.

More than half of 5,000 18-29 year-old Pakistanis polled said democracy had not been good for them or the country.

Furthermore, 94% said Pakistan was going in the wrong direction - a figure up from 50% in 2007.

Making up almost a third of registered voters, the under-30s are expected to play a big part in Pakistan's general elections in May.

When asked to pick the best political system, both Sharia law and military rule were favoured over democracy.


Ask any muslim that and you can guess the answer
