The global face of Islam

More Muslims live in India & Pakistan than all of Mideast & N Africa.

It seems Islam has really grown in the last decade, for some reason I’d always there were around a billion Muslims but it seems I was off by a fair margin. Global Religions:

Christianity 2.1 billion
Islam 1.6 billion
Secular*/Nonreligious*/Agnostic/Atheist ≤ 1.1 billion
Hinduism billion
Chinese traditional religion* 394 million
Buddhism* 376 million
Ethnic religions excluding some in seperate categories 300 million
African traditional religions 100 million
Sikhism 23 million
Juche* 19 million
Spiritism 15 million
Judaism 14 million
Bahá’í 7 million
Jainism 4.2 million
Shinto 4 million
Cao Dai 4 million
Zoroastrianism 2.6 million
Tenrikyo 2 million
Neo-Paganism 1 million

Lingayats should definitely be up there. They number more than 10 million easily.

Pardon my limited knowledge of Lingayatism but shouldn't it be counted as a sect of Hinduism ? I would like to know more about why you'd consider them to be a separate religion (like Jainims or Sikhism).

The number of Zoroastrians seem to be off by a factor of 10.

There are less than 200,000 Zoroastrians left in the world.
