Pew study: Little change in India's religious make-up in 70 years

 

 

All religious groups in India have shown major declines in fertility rates, a study from Pew Research Center has found.

As a result there have been only "modest changes" in the religious make-up of the people since 1951.

 

The two largest groups, Hindus and Muslims, make up 94% of India's 1.2 billion people.

 

Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists and Jains together make up the remaining 6% of the population.

 

Based on data available in India's decennial census and the National Family Health Survey (NFHS), the Pew study examines how the country's religious composition has changed, and the main reasons behind the changes.

 

India's population has more than trebled following the 1947 division of a colonial state into Hindu-majority India and Muslim-majority Pakistan - from 361 million people in 1951, to more than 1.2 billion people in 2011. (Independent India held its first census in 1951, and the last one was conducted in 2011.)

 

During this period, every major religion in India saw its numbers rise, the study found.

 

The number of Hindus increased from 304 million to 966 million; Muslims grew from 35 million to 172 million; and the number of Indians who say they are Christian rose from 8 million to 28 million.
