Pakistani youth 'prefer Sharia to democracy'

Pakistani youth would prefer Islamic law or military rule over democracy, a British Council survey suggests.

More than half of 5,000 18-29 year-old Pakistanis polled said democracy had not been good for them or the country.

Furthermore, 94% said Pakistan was going in the wrong direction - a figure up from 50% in 2007.
