Little variation in Pakistani perception of India over the last decade.

Islamabad, November 17, 2014

According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, 62% Pakistanis believe that India is Pakistan’s enemy; 16% think it is Pakistan’s friend.

A nationally representative sample of adult men and women, from across the four provinces was asked, “Some people consider India as Pakistan’s enemy, while others believe it is Pakistan’s friend. What is your opinion?” In response, 62% respondents said that India is Pakistan’s enemy, 21% said it is Pakistan’s rival, while 16% think it is Pakistan’s friend and 1% did not respond.

This questions was also asked earlier, between 2006 and 2013. There has been little varitation in Pakistani perception of India over the years. The only noticeable change in trend was in 2007, when the percentage of Pakistanis who considered India an enemy dropped to 47% and those who considered it a rival increased to 36%. Apart from 2007, the percentage of respondents who consider India an enemy has not dropped below 56% with 65% being the highest in 2011. Those respondents who consider India merely a rival have never increased above 26% (with the exception of 2007), with the lowest being 19% in 2011 when perceptions seem to be most negative.
