A vast majority of Pakistanis (78%) think Eid should be celebrated on the same date throughout Pakistan; this figure has been rising since the past 5 years.

According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup & Gilani Pakistan, a vast majority of Pakistanis (78%) think Eid should be celebrated on the same date throughout Pakistan; this figure has been rising since the past 5 years.

A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked, “In recent times, Eid has been celebrated on different dates across Pakistan. In your opinion, should Eid be celebrated on the same date throughout the country or not?” In response in 2019, 78% said Eid should be celebrated on the same date everywhere, whereas 19% said it should be celebrated on different dates. 3% did not know or wish to respond.
