Overwhelming majority of Pakistanis trust religious leaders and ulema.

Islamabad, December 29, 2014

According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, 82% Pakistanis trust ulema and religious leaders; 17% do not trust them.

A nationally representative sample of adult men and women, from across the four provinces was asked, “We want to ask you about how much you trust Ulema/Religious Leaders?” In response to this question, 41% respondents said they trust them very much, 41% said they somewhat trust them, 14% trust them very little, while 3% have no trust in them at all and 1% did not respond.  

This question was also asked in previous years. In 1994, 9% respondents said they trust religious leaders very much, 17% trusted them somewhat, 19% trusted them very little, while 28% did not trust them at all and 27% did not reply. From 1994 to 1998, there was a rise in the number of respondents who  said they trusted religious leaders as well as those who said they did not trust them, since all respondents chose to respond to the question. Between 1998 and 2000, the percentage of respondents that trusted  and those that distrusted  religious leaders remained almost steady and equal. Since 2000, there has been a sharp increase in the number of respondents who trust religious leaders and a decline in those who do not trust them.  In 2009, 31% respondents said they trust religious leaders very much, 27% said they trust them somewhat, 18% trusted them very little, while 15% did not trust them at all and 9% did not respond.

Question: “We want to ask you about how much you trust Ulema/Religious Leaders?”


Trust= Trust very much + Trust somewhat
Distrust= Trust very little + No trust at all
