On Wednesday, there is a general election in Pakistan. This documentary by Mo Naqvi follows him as he prepares to vote in the elections for the first time.

Naqvi’s motivation is to back someone who will prevent the country from becoming a terrorist state. However, the choice is tough – it’s between hardline religious leaders, or a former military dictator. He questions if democracy is possible in Pakistan, and also interviews former president Pervez Musharraf.

Insha’Allah Democracy is on BBC Four at 22.00.
