Abstract: This paper attempts to analyze the civil-military relations in Pakistan through a historical narration. The typical structure of the Pakistani state gives the military and the bureaucracy dominance over its polity and society since its birth. An attempt has been made to explain the civil-military relations during the democratic period and military regimes separately. The Pakistani military is viewed as important for the security and survival of Pakistan. Long years in power enabled the military to influence civilian institutions of the state and society and established presence in all sectors of the society.
