Pakistan was founded on the principles of Islamic doctrine, and it was established with the goal of protecting the civil and religious rights of Muslims.

The Islamic Provision in the constitution that existed before 1973 served as the basis for Islamization. The passage of time resulted in the establishment of many institutions, such as the Council of Islamic Ideology and the Federal Shariat Court. The purpose of this research is to determine whether or not the process of Islamization in legislation making genuinely satisfied the concerns of the foundation of this nation. In this study, we will examine the many efforts made throughout history, focusing particularly on those made during the Zia period. Zia said that he would apply and enforce Islam in every aspect of Pakistani society, however the Islamization that he pushed through had negative effects and was condemned by academics.
