Although India is the second most populous country in the world, with almost 1.2 billion people, only about two percent are Catholic. A few million are other Christian denominations, Buddhists and a significant number of Muslims, but the majority at 83% are Hindus. The Church, despite a minority, plays a significant role in providing health care, welfare services and education across the country. The vast majority of Indians, which have converted to Christianity, are from the lower strata – the so-called untouchables.
