A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked “Did you pray or fast on the eve of Shab-e-Barat this year?” Responding to this, 98% said they prayed and 68% said they observed fast. (Note: This was a multiple response question so the percentage sum may exceed 100%.)
