This article presents the debate of culture and civilization in context to the critical thinking and concepts of Faiz Ahmad Faiz. The article introduces culture and civilization, national culture and Pakistani culture, ingredients, possible forms and issues of Pakistani culture. The culture of every nation consists of its values, beliefs, traditions, way of life, norms, language, religion, literature, art and technology. All these aspects of culture are strongly correlated to eachother and are evolved through intermingling of societies having a history of several centuries. The major characteristics of a national culture or civilization are its history, geographical boundaries and the diffusion of culture in the society. There are several issues like the identity of civilization and the formation of social system where the diffences between the rich and the poor may possibly be minimized and hence the Marxist approach of Faiz Ahmad Faiz may be observed. In this article, the views of Faiz regarding culture and civilization have been presented with critical analysis.
