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/), 43% of Pakistanis fear India might go for a first strike in nuclear exchange with Pakistan; 46% dispute it.

A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked, “God forbid, if a war breaks out then will India use its atomic weapons or not?” In response to this question, 43% believe that India will use its atomic weapons, while 46% believe it won’t. 11% did not know or did not wish to respond to the question.
