According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, 60% Pakistanis believe that the security situation during Muharram was better than previous years; 21% believe it was worse.

A nationally representative sample of adult men and women, from across the four provinces was asked, Do you think the peace and security situation during Muharram was better than previous years, or worse than previous years, or was there no difference? In response, 60% respondents said that the security situation during Muharram was better than previous years, 21% said it was worse than previous years, while 19% said there was no difference.

This question was also asked in previous years. The percentage of respondents who believe the security situation was better than previous years has improved to 60% again in 2014, after falling from 60% to 46% between 2011 and 2013. The percentage of respondents who believe there was no difference has fallen to 19% after remaining steady between 2011 (28%) and 2013 (29%). The percentage of respondents who believe the security situation was worse than previous years has remained almost consistent after rising from 11% in 2011 to 24% in 2012. In 2013, the respondents who believed the security situation was worse were at 24% again, and in 2014 they are at 21%.
