    Census 2011 is likely to throw up a psychologically important figure on India's religious demographics. For the first time in over a century, the proportion of the Hindu population in the country will probably fall below the 80 percent mark - in keeping with the long-term trend of a significant divergence between Hindu and Muslim growth rates.

    Demographers like Ashish Bose and SC Gulati have varying viewpoints on the subject. While Bose believes that "it is quite likely that the proportion will be below 80% in 2011", Gulati says that "A secular trend cannot be predicted for religions based on past data". The latter view is also backed by another Economic & Political Weekly (EPW) research paper "Hindu-Muslim Fertility Differentials", which says: "It is true that a Hindu-Muslim differential in fertility persists in India's demographic reality, but it is no more than one child. It is also not too large to swamp India's Hindu majority in the foreseeable future. Nor is the gap likely to persist for a very long time as we find that the fertility level among Muslims declines with increasing level of education and standards of living. The faster increase in family planning among Muslims supports this conjecture".

    Most atheist and agnostic in India identify themselves as Hindus or atleast officially(even if they are not practising hindus).
    The Hindu population is decreasing whereas Muslim population is increasing as they have higher feritility rates. Also there is a tiny but substantial effect of Christian evangelism.

    Well Christian evangelism has converted almost all of NE India in last 3-4 decades, so evangelism is playing a part.

    Don't get scared, just give your support to those who work for Hinduism. You need to work and volunteer in anyway possible from now on. Talking wont help, I have left talking and now i am working for BJP, RSS and other organizations to galvanize the youth. You can join me if your from TN to create our Sena for a strong and bright future.

    No, we can't afford any more babies. The solution is to ensure that everyone makes less babies, specifically those segments of population which are making too many babies currently.

    Christianity is increasing it's numbers through conversions and Islam through population. That is a fact.

    Dalits and Bahujans should embrace the one true Dhamma instead of oppressive Hinduism or fraudulent Chrisitanity. Am waiting for India to have a national Sangha...
