Local media Saturday quoted a recent survey as saying 90 percent of Pakistanis across the country feel that their area is not safe for anyone to walk for a few miles at night. According to a Gilani Research Foundation survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, fears about lack of safety and security have sharply increased over the past 25 years. In 1985, a similar poll had found that only half that many (45 percent) believed that their area was not safe enough, said the survey. Currently only 10 percent say that their area is totally safe and there are no chances of any mishap or crime taking place. By contrast in 1985, 50 percent held these views about their area. In 1985, 19 percent considered their area extremely safe to walk for a few miles alone at night, 26 percent found their area safe to some extent, 50 percent mentioned it to be totally safe while 5 percent gave no response. The recent survey was carried out among a sample of 2,772 men and women in rural and urban areas of all four provinces of the country during June 2010.
