ISLAMABAD – Pakistan has ranked at 126th out of 128 countries in the world on equal treatment and absence of discrimination in a study conducted by World Justice Project and Gallup & Gilani Pakistan.
The global survey results are based on sub-factor 4.1 of the WJP Fundamental Rights Index which measures whether individuals are free from discrimination – based on socio-economic status, gender, ethnicity, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, or gender identity – with respect to public services, employment, court proceedings, and the justice system.
