Abstract

This research intends to highlight the subjugation of minorities in third world countries in general and Pakistan in particular, with reference to Althusserian Ideological and Repressive state apparatuses. It also sheds light on the sufferings of poor minorities who are suppressed not only by the individuals but also by the state controlled institutions. Althusser is of the view that the under privileged people are always marginalized by the elite that maintains its social hierarchy by projecting themselves as the representative of the state. This research is significant as it contributes to address the problems of third-world minorities who are facing suppression, marginalization and exploitation in various ways.
