Hindu FaceLearn More About The Region:

Hinduism is a religion that originated on the Indian subcontinent, with its origins in the Vedic civilization and, to a minor degree, in the Indus Valley Civilization. It has no known founder, being itself a conglomerate of diverse beliefs and traditions and is considered by some as the world’s oldest extant religion, and has approximately a billion adherents, of whom about 905 million live in India and Nepal, placing it as the world’s third largest religion after Christianity and Islam. Other countries with large Hindu populations include Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Malaysia, Fiji, Suriname, Guyana and Trinidad and Tobago. Most forms of Hinduism are henotheistic religions which recognize a single deity, and view other Gods and Goddesses as manifestations or aspects of that supreme God. Until recently, a Hindu nationalistic political party controlled the government of India and linkage of religion, the national government, and nationalism led to an escalation of anti-Christian violence. Dalit and other outcast groups have sought escape from the oppressive caste system by wholesale conversions to Buddhism, Islam, and Christianity recently. Pray for God to reveal Himself to every one of the 2,285 least-reached Hindu peoples in South Asia.
