According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, 78% Pakistanis said that Christians should be allowed to build churches in those Muslim countries where they are in a minority (such as Pakistan); 22% said that they should not be allowed.

A nationally representative sample of adult men and women, from across the four provinces was asked, In your opinion, in those Muslims countries where Christians are in a minority (such as Pakistan), should they be allowed to build churches or not? In response to this question, 78% respondents said that Christians should be allowed to build churches in those countries where they are in a minority, while 22% respondents said that they should not be allowed to build churches in such countries.

This question has been asked in previous years and the results have been quite similar. Between 2011 and 2012, there was a decline in those respondents who said that Christians should be allowed to build churches in Muslims countries (82% to 75%), and an increase in those who said that they should not be allowed (17% to 24%). Since 2012, however, there have only been minor changes in the percentage of respondents going either way. The vast majority of respondents overall, during the past four years, have said that Christians should be allowed to build churches in those Muslims countries where they are in a minority.
