The number of minority people in Bangladesh is declining fast and as per the census in 2011, the number of Hindus has decreased by 24%. Officials of Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics stated (on condition of anonymity), the number of Hindus may decline more in the next census. If facts of census are analyzed, in 1901 Hindus comprised 33% of the entire population in the territory shaping contemporary Bangladesh. The first census of independent Bangladesh in 1971 revealed that Hindus represented 13% of the entire populace and by 2001 it came down to 9.3%. However, at the same time, there has not been significant reduction of Buddhists, Christians and other religious minority groups. On the other hand, the number of Muslims has increased exponentially.
