Hi Voices conducted a review of previous research and a new survey both in person and online to analyze youth behavior towards people of other religions, their interaction and learnings with them. We conducted a survey from 366 young people from diverse backgrounds, using random sampling methods from the South Punjab mostly Multan region of Pakistan. The results showed that conversations about the rights of people from religious minorities still face backlash from the young community. Also, surveys show that society is still polarized with most young people thinking that the educational curriculum still needs much improvements related to advocating for religious equality.
