Islamabad- Thirty-nine percent of Pakistani civilians believe that post- Bin Laden’s death, the world security situation has worsened notably, as recorded by a Gillani Research Foundation Survey. The survey further reveals that 45 percent claim there is no change in the situation.
Osama Bin Laden had been killed by American forces on Pakistani soil on May 2, 2011. The sample represented adult men and women across the nation. The question raised was: “In your opinion, has the world security situation improved or worsened after the death of Osama Bin Laden or has there been no change?” This garnered a response of 15 percent claiming the situation had improved post-death, 39 percent claiming the opposite whilst 45 percent supported the idea that no change had occurred (the remaining 1 percent did not reply). The study was conducted by Gallup Pakistan, the Pakistani affiliate of Gallup International. It constituted a sample of 2596 persons from the rural and urban areas of all four provinces of the country and was conducted from May 05, 2014 to May 12, 2014.
