ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the reflections on a revolution in Pakistan.

He explains the concept of the state in international life with an illustration of the case of Pakistan. He describes three characteristics to explain the case: (1) Population conscious of a political identity, and aware of a common history (2) Territory, identified with the people by habit and history, and (3) Regime identified with the populace and the territory, and endowed with faculties for making policy. Furthermore, the author highlights the role of constitutional government and of democratic processes in both East and West Pakistan.
