ISLAMABAD: Majority of Pakistanis think that the resolution of the Kashmir dispute is necessary for peace with India, a recent survey has revealed.
In the survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, a nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked Do you think in order to establish peace with India it is important to resolve the Kashmir dispute or can peace be established with India without its resolution?
Responding to this, 76 percent said it is necessary to resolve the Kashmir dispute first in order to establish peace with India, and 21 percent said peace can be established between Pakistan and India even without the resolution of the Kashmir dispute. However, 3 percent did not give a response.
The survey was carried out among a sample of 2677 men and women in rural and urban areas of all four provinces of the country, during November 18, 2012 November 25, 2012. Agencies
