According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup & Gilani Pakistan on the issue of India-Pakistan relations post Pulwama Attack (full report available at http://gallup.com.pk/pakistani-opinion-remains-calm-and-unprovoked-during-threat-of-war-with-india/), views are sharply divided on whether India will accept Pakistan’s offer to end lifelong hostility and conflict. 50% are optimistic, 47% are pessimists on this prospect.

A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked, “Some people think no matter what we do, India will remain Pakistan’s enemy. What do you think are the chances of having friendly relations with India if Pakistan extends a friendly hand?” In response to this question, 16% said it is very likely, 34% said it is somewhat likely, while 47% said it is not likely at all. 3% did not know or did not wish to respond to the question.
