`80% Pakistanis fear leaving home due to security threats`
Islamabad: 80% of Pakistanis fear stepping out of their homes to visit public places like
markets and hotels, according to findings of a poll released today.
Asked to what extent the increasing security threat had
affected their visits to places such as markets and hotels, 36
per cent said recent incidents of terrorism had affected them
"a lot" while 44 per cent said they had been affected
Nineteen per cent said the terrorist incidents had not
affected their visits to markets, hotels or other places while
remaining one per cent gave no response.
The survey was carried out by Gallup Pakistan for
Gilani Research Foundation.
While the daily hustle and bustle in Pakistani
neighbourhoods continues as usual, there is a widespread
feeling of insecurity at a perceptual level, the survey said.
The findings of the survey revealed no significant
difference in opinion of people from across various
demographics except that incidents of terrorism seemed
to have affected movements of rural dwellers the most.
Eighty-three per cent of people in rural areas
said they had been affected to a great extent or somewhat by
incidents of terrorism, compared to 75 per cent of urbanites.
