Former Federal Secretary Tariq Mahmud highlights key features of federalism at UMT
November 27, 2014
 
Distinguished former Federal Secretary Tariq Mahmud highlighted key features of Federalism before a select gathering at the UMT campus. Tracing the history of the two initial parts of the undivided country, East and West Pakistan, he observed that this geographical incongruity influenced the leaders of that time to adopt the Federal system. Mahmud then analyzed the changing pattern of federalism post-1971. He explained how sub-nationalities became incrementally disillusioned with the centrist approach. In his opinion, had they been given political space, their forced reversion to their ethnicities, languages, and glorification of their historical-cultural idiom could have been avoided.
