A report by a global analytics firm listed the world's most secure and least secure countries on Thursday. The firm, Gallup, has declared East Asia as the most secure region in the world in its Law and Order Index 2022.

The report proclaimed that Afghanistan is the world's "least secure" country amid unabated human rights violations due to Taliban rule.

Afghanistan emerged with a score of 51 as the survey was conducted on the basis of how safe people feel in their communities or have been prone to theft or assault in the previous year.

The survey evaluated around 120 countries based on the safety and security of the country's citizens.

Despite the low score in 2021, Afghanistan's score was an improvement over its previous result in 2019, which was 43 according to Gallup's survey. The surveys conducted by Gallup in Afghanistan in 2021 were conducted when the US withdrew its troops.

However, Singapore was rated as the most secure, with a score of 96 in the survey report.

India scored 80 points in Gallup's report, below Pakistan and Sri Lanka with a marginal difference in points. However, UK and Bangladesh were placed below India.
