A majority of Pakistanis want the government to take steps for the Islamisation of society, revealed a recently released Gilani Poll conducted by Gallup Pakistan.
In a survey, a nationally representative sample of men and women from across the country were asked the following question:
In your opinion should government take steps to ‘Islamise’ the society?
The results of the poll revealed that 67% of Pakistanis want the government to take steps to Islamise society, 13% responded by saying Pakistan did not need Islamisation and 20% gave no response.
Those who responded with a yes were asked a follow up question:
Should government take steps for Islamisation at once or one by one?
Forty eight per cent said the government should take the steps ‘one by one’ and 31% said the steps should be taken at once, while 21% gave no response.
The survey was carried out among a sample of 2,738 men and women in rural and urban areas of all four provinces of the country, during January 2011.
Error margin is estimated to be approximately ± 2-3 per cent at 95% confidence level.
