While General Pervez Musharraf envisioned a secular
Pakistan, his support to the United States for the
"war on terror" sparked the rise of Islamic parties
who gained an unprecedented 60 seats in the October
2002 elections. This seminar will address the rise of
Islamic fundamentalism and militarism and its impact
on the lives of ordinary Pakistanis.  

South Asia Partnership Pakistan, which receives
funding in part from the Canadian International
Development Agency, has a network of over 2,000
