A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked, “In your opinion, to establish peace with India is it essential to first resolve Kashmir issue or can peace be established with India even without it?” Responding to this, 61% said it is essential to resolve Kashmir issue for peace, while 32% said peace can be established without resolving Kashmir issue. 7% did not know or did not wish to respond.
