    3. williampaul

      Your opinion is absolutely right Mr.Raghul. And I think we should take responsibility to save Hinduism and our next generation as well. I am fully agree with you.

  3. MS Shohan

    Truth!!! Don’t worry…. If Hinduism is the truth then it won’t die because the almighty will save it. But if it is not then you have many things to worry about. This is a very serious matter to choose a certain religion without researching it.

    If unintentionally I hurt you, then I am sorry. I want you to read and understand Geeta, Upanishad, Quran and Bible. And compare them with your free mind. May the almighty show you the truth.

    Thank You

    Hi Why there is different % in Christianity. One in the bracket also ? is that is the expected % in that state ?

    Kindly clarify

  5. Sai Nagesh

    If really people read Ramayan Geeta Veda Upanishad and Quran and Bible and later choose their religion with free mind then trust me people choose Hinduism but it’s not the case. These fucking Christians missionaries spreading lies bout Hindu dharma and targeting poor people and in the name humanity and love ❤️ using poor people status for granted.
    .

  6. Sai Nagesh

    Atheism raising drastically in Christians countries and Hinduism is good position in America Canada ?? Russia ?? and in some other countries across the world ? here in India ?? politicians playing money ? card and allowing missionaries to lie and spread hatred messages about Sanatana dharma and offering money nd gifts ? and targeting slum people status and buying them.

  7. Kundan Kumar

    Not possible because in 2011 Muslim was 14.2% and hindu. 79.8 and in 2011
    hindu decrease 5% and Muslim remains constant

  8. Manish burman
