According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, more than half Pakistanis (59%) believe there is a possibility (very high or somewhat) of war between India and Pakistan these days.

A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked in September 2016, “What is the possibility of war between India and Pakistan these days?” In response to this question, 19% said very high, 40% said to some extent, while 28% said very less. 13% did not know or did not wish to respond.

Trend Analysis:

The same question was asked in October 1981. In 1981, 19% said very high, 28% said to some extent, while 17% said not at all. 36% did not know or did not wish to respond.

In June 1999, 38% said very high, 45% said to some extent, while 10% said not at all. 7% did not know or did not wish to respond.

In October 2011, 3% said very high, 41% said to some extent, while 54% said not at all. 2% did not know or did not wish to respond.

Comparing the results over the last 35 years, there has been a 12% increase in the proportion of Pakistanis who believe there is a possibility (very high or somewhat) of war between the two countries these days. (1981 vs. 2016)
