89% of Pakistanis believe education can stop religious extremism: Gallup Poll

According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, Majority (89%) of Pakistanis think education can stop a person from going towards religious extremism.
A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked “Wasim believes education can stop a person from going towards religious extremism, whereas Akhtar believes education cannot influence this. Do you agree with Wasim or Akhtar?” Responding to this, 89% of Pakistanis said they agreed with Wasim and 11% said they agreed with Akhtar.
These results are from Gallup Pakistan’s study on “Understanding Pakistan’s Educational Landscape.” Bilal Ijaz Gilani, Executive Director at Gallup Pakistan comments “these findings are yet another proof that prospects for education have become very promising and education is a high priority for Pakistanis.”
