A nationally representative sample of adult men and women, from across the four provinces was asked, �Kashmir Solidarity Day was celebrated a few days ago and many events were held. Did you get the chance to participate in such an event or not?� In response to this question, 1% respondents said that they participated in events for Kashmir Solidarity Day, while 99% respondents said that they did not participate in any event for the day.
