EXECUTIONS HAVE NOT MADE PUNJAB SAFER
Punjab’s	decline	in	murders	has	been	at	a	slower	pace	than	the	
rest	of	the	country	overall.	Since	the	moratorium	was	lifted,	Sindh	
has	contributed	most	to	the	decline	in	murders,	despite	having	
significantly	 fewer	 prisoners	 sentenced	 and	 only	 18	 executions	
compared	to	Punjab’s	382	executions.
