A referendum on the Islamisation policy of President Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq was held in Pakistan on 19 December 1984. Voters were asked whether they supported Zia-ul-Haq's proposals for amending several laws in accordance with the Koran and Sunnah, whether they wanted this process to continue, and whether they supported the Islamic ideology of Pakistan. The referendum also served as way of extending Zia-ul-Haq's presidential term by five years. It was reportedly approved by 98.5% of voters, with a turnout of 62.2%.
