Social Structure of Pakistan: An Attempt at Developing Some Concepts

Sabeeha Hafeez

Abstract


In this paper I would like to introduce three interrelated
propositions about the Social structure of Pakistan: (i) that Pakistan
society is characterized by a social stratification process which is
compensatory in nature; (ii) that the compensatory process of social
stratification over the years has given rise to status-centric value
orientation; and (iii) that the most significant indicator of
status-centric orientation is emergence of artificial middle class which
can be distinguished from real middle class in terms of norms.
