Abstract

Culture serves as the key to every society. It shapes the societal norms and guides the individuals the social behaviors. It is the man-made environment which includes norms, values, customs and all the habits of individuals which he acquired as a member of the society. In this Study, the researcher has attempted to create a ground for all the thinkers and philosophers that is, where the norms are up to and what are the barriers which we need to sort out in the light of social role theory which talks about the roles of men and women within the society, national culture theory which gives the idea that the cultural values are formed by man, cultural leg theory which puts the light upon the gap between the material and non-material culture so it talks about the significance of both to grow with the same speed and by linking these theories to create an argument with the support of Quranic verses, the last sermon of the Messenger (Peace be upon him) and the addresses of the founder of Pakistan Mr. Quaid-E-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. The study will finally be concluded with some of the recommendations so that the rising hatred of society can be converted to the peaceful one.
