PTI | Washington | Wed Dec 19 2012 :: Hinduism is the third largest religion of the world after Christianity and Islam and 97 per cent of all Hindus live in three Hindu-majority countries : India, Nepal and Mauritius, according to a study.
India, which accounts for majority of world’s Hindus, is also home to almost all the major religions of the world, a Pew research said Tuesday.
Pew demographic study ‘based on analysis of more than 2,500 censuses, surveys and population registers’ finds 2.2 billion Christians (32 per cent of the world’s population), 1.6 billion Muslims (23 per cent), 1 billion Hindus (15 per cent), nearly 500 million Buddhists (7 per cent) and 14 million Jews (0.2 per cent) around the world as of 2010.
In addition, more than 400 million people (six per cent) practice various folk or traditional religions, including African traditional religions, Chinese folk religions, Native American religions and Australian aboriginal religions.
An estimated 58 million people ‘ slightly less than one per cent of the global population’ belong to other religions, including the Baha’i faith, Jainism, Sikhism, Shintoism, Taoism, Tenrikyo, Wicca and Zoroastrianism, to mention just a few, it said.
Pew said overwhelmingly, Hindus and Christians tend to live in countries where they are in the majority.
Ninety seven per cent of all Hindus live in the world’s three Hindu-majority countries (India, Mauritius and Nepal), and nearly nine-in-ten Christians (87 per cent) are found in the world’s 157 Christian majority countries.
The median age of two major groups ‘Muslims (23 years) and Hindus (26)’ is younger than the median age of the world’s overall population (28), it said adding that all the other groups are older than the global median.
Hindu Existence Post Script:
Actually, ‘India root religion’ is still the largest religion of world if you consider Hindus (15%) + Buddhist (7%) + Other Religions (nearly 1% most of them are Sikhs, Jains etc) + Religiously Unaffiliated (16% most of them are in China and hide their practising Buddhist culture due a oppressive Communist Govt & others actually follow the offshoot of Hindu faiths)……… SO THERE IS AT LEAST 35% INDIAN-HINDU ROOTS RELIGIONISTS IN THIS WORLD LARGER THAN 32% CHRISTIANS AND 23% MUSLIMS SO FAR. As Pew is a Christian affiliated organisation, it addresses the crisis and problems before the Christianity in order to propagate the Christianity in a top place. Within this theoretical module the ‘Indian Roots Religions’ are shown in an easy fragmentation which is quite unopposed.
The existence of Aryavarta-Bharat-Hindusthan-India solely depends upon the Hindu Majority and an establishment of a Hindu Rashtra in Bharat. We have to encounter forceful conversion of Hindus into Islam and Christianity. Until and unless a meaningful Dhramarashtra on the basis of Hindu principles is established here the entity of Hindusthan will be always challenged by the Islam, Christianity, Communism, Consumerism and Corruption. We should compete our vision to make a Hindu Rashtra in Bharat within 2025.
