The remaining 31 percent either did not support the idea or gave no response, according to a Gilani Research Foundation survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan .
A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the country were asked “In your opinion, in Muslim countries like Pakistan , where Christians are in minority, should they be allowed to build church or not?” Sixty nine percent claimed to be in the favor of letting Christians build their own public worship sites, while 29 percent are against it. The remaining 2 percent of the respondents did not respond.
