I cant believe in all of China's 1.2 billion people, especially considering proximity to India, that it doesn't even have 800k Hindus.

I'm not surprised. The border areas are not heavily populated. China doesn't really allow immigration, and Hinduism is not one of the 5 allowed religions in China. There is apparently a small population of Hindus in Hong Kong:

Also to add to Quizmaster's comment, Mao Zedong's party in the mid 1900's put religion under government control and banned most religions and they ran campaigns to stamp out religion in China.

Theistic religions aren't big at all in China and modern China is one of the most atheistic countries. They almost exclusively practice spiritual, humanist or folk religions (Taoism/Confucianism etc) rather than theism of any kind.

(I'm assuming your comment is in reference to Buddhists in Tibet, not Hindus?) Given the mass murders and mass exodus circa 1959, I'm guessing that the remaining Tibetan Buddhist population is quite motivated to severely underreport themselves. Even if they weren't, I'm not sure China would feel it particularly advantageous to accurately report those numbers either.

I would have guessed that there would be enough Indians in South Africa to make the top ten. In fact I did. Looking it up it's in 12th place. A perhaps more interesting quiz would be the countries that are at least 10% Hindu. Maybe I'll do that later today when I get a chance.

Mauritius is one of 3 majority Hindu countries (plus India and Nepal) and yet its tiny population means that it cannot be featured on this quiz.

I believe the U.A.E should qualify; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hinduism_in_Arab_states. According to the link, the Hindu population in the U.A.E is 1.4 million

Probably a question of citizenship. 80% of the UAE population is non-citizen temporary workers according to the Wikipedia site this quiz must refer to as it only lists up to 0.45 mil Hindus for the UAE.

Needs updating for the current stats - switch Myanmar and UK, and then replace Myanmar with Mauritius.
