Hinduism

In the 2011 census, Hindu’s make up 1.5% of the population in England and Wales.
Although 97 percent of Hindus in the UK are of Indian origin, a mere 30 percent were born in India. The numbers born in the UK and south Asia are nearly identical, but these two sources still account for just three-quarters of the total. While most of the remainder came from East Africa, thousands had their birthplaces in lands as distant as North America, the Caribbean, and Oceania.
