Public opinion varied over the number of people giving sacrifice on Eid each year.

Islamabad, November 6, 2014

According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, 36% Pakistanis believe that the number of people sacrificing animals this Eid was lower than last year; 31% believe there was no difference. 

A nationally representative sample of adult men and women, from across the four provinces was asked, “Do you think that the number of people sacrificing an animal this year has increased compared to previous years, decreased, or has there been no difference?” In response, 32% respondents said that the number of people giving sacrifice on Eid has increased compared to last year, 36% respondents said the number has decreased compared to last year, while 31% believe there has been no difference in the number of people, and 1% did not respond.

This question was also asked from 2011 to 2013. In 2011, 13% respondents said the number of people sacrificing an animal on Eid had increased, 58% said the number had decreased while 27% said there was no difference and 2% did not respond. In 2012, 28% respondents said the number of people sacrificing an animal on Eid had increased, 42% said the number had decreased while 28% said there was no difference and 2% did not respond. In 2013, 18% respondents said the number of people sacrificing an animal on Eid had increased, 49% said the number had decreased while 31% said there was no difference and 2% did not respond.
