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/), a vast majority (66%) Pakistanis support their Prime Minister’s decision of releasing the Indian pilot. Only 32% oppose this.
A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked, “Recently, Prime Minister Imran Khan has announced to release the Indian pilot held as a captive. By doing this has he done a good thing or a bad thing?” In response to this question, 32% Pakistanis say it is a very good thing, 34% Pakistanis find this act to be just good, while 19% and 13% Pakistanis found this to be bad and very bad respectively. 2% did not know or did not wish to respond.
