Fudging the population: The missing 90 million Indian Muslims

There is one thing about Indian Muslims that just can’t be denied – most of them are poor. They don’t earn enough to be able to go on vacations to other countries. Most of them wish to go for Hajj to Saudi Arabia, and this they are able to do only when they are very old; having struggled to save over many years for the journey.

Of course, there are rich and literate Indian Muslims whom one occasionally meets (mostly in the UAE and Saudi Arabia), and when you talk to them, they are adamant that the population of Indian Muslims is much more than that declared by their government. I have heard this many a times from the few educated Indian Muslims I have come across during my trips to foreign countries.

However, Hindutva extremists fear that Indian Muslims are growing exponentially and India will soon become a Muslim-majority state. This is because, according to the past seven Indian censuses (1951 to 2011), Muslims have grown from 11.66% to 14.23% of the total Indian population. What they don’t know is that their governments have tried to keep Hindutva extremists calm by deliberately suppressing the actual number of Indian Muslims. I mean, if virulent Hindutva extremists are terrified by just a 2.75% increase in the Muslim population in 60 years, they will definitely come out on the streets and kill all Muslims in sight if told that the number of Indian Muslims is actually around 22% of the total population.

So I have done a lot of research over the past few months and I can easily prove that fudging has taken place when recording the number of Muslims in India. I shall try to explain as simply as possible.

Let us start with the Indian census of 1941, six years before the British left the sub-continent. According to the Hindutva extremist Jana Sangh’s website, in 1941, the number of Muslims in undivided India was 94.4 million, half of whom lived in what later became Pakistan (including Bangladesh). The 47 million Muslims of Pakistan and Bangladesh had grown to about 326 million in 2011, while the 47 million Muslims in India had grown to only 172.2 million in the same year. This is a big difference of 153.8 million. However, we have to take into consideration the migration of Muslims from India to Pakistan and Bangladesh immediately after Partition.

According to Indian census data, the population of Indian Muslims grew by 33% between 1951 and 1961. If we assume that the population grew at the same rate between 1941 and 1951, the Muslim population in India in 1951 would have been 62.5 million. The exact number of Muslims who left India to settle in Pakistan and Bangladesh after Partition is unknown, but is estimated to be between six and eight million. If we assume that seven million Muslims left India after Partition, and that another million Muslims died in the Bengal famine of 1943, the Indian Muslim population in 1951 would have been about 54 million, instead of 35 million as recorded in the 1951 census.

Again, according to Indian census data, the Indian Muslim population grew by about 386% in 60 years from 1951 to 2011. If the population had been recorded at 54 million in 1951, it would and should have been about 262 million today (assuming that it grew by 386%, as per India’s data itself). Since the 2011 census reported the number of Indian Muslims as 172 million, there are at least 90 million Indian Muslims who have not been registered by the Indian authorities. This means that in 2011, there were at least 22 Muslims out of every 100 Indians.

So the question then arises, why don’t Indian Muslims speak up? One reason could be that they are too busy struggling desperately to survive, and don’t care whether they are registered or not, since they know that they will always remain the underdogs in a country which is rapidly heading towards Hindutva Talibanisation. Then of course, there is the Indian government itself, which wants to ensure that India remains a Hindu-majority country. They fear that once a state has more Muslims than others, that state could demand independence. Already West Bengal, Assam and Kerala have more than 25 % of Muslim population, while Uttar Pradesh (UP) and Bihar have a significant Muslim population.

But Hindutva extremists should ask themselves why Muslims are growing so rapidly, while Hindus are declining in India. Perhaps a high protein diet (including beef) increases fertility?

    “Let’s assume this and let’s assume that”…Muslim leaders and intellectuals have no real figures or proofs. The fact is that, they have kept Muslims backward to use them as bargaining chip for their own vested interests. The biggest mistake was to use them as vote bank but it backfired when BJP used Hindu majority vote which made Muslim vote bank irrelevant. Instead of accusing their opponents for everything bad, Muslims should leave politics aside and focus on education, development, jobs and nationalism.Recommend

    One can also argue that the lower rate of increase of Indian Muslims as compared with Pakistani Muslims is due to the better economic condition of the former and much more successful family planning. The author finds pleasure in announcing to his satisfaction that Indian Muslims are all poor, so poor that that can perform Hajj. I wish that was true, and Indian Muslims were not going on multiple hajj and umra. Things must be bad in Pakistan, for this author to find some comfort in such gratuitous idiocy, and for the Express-Tribune to publish it.Recommend

    Mr Lakhani, India is not Pakistan which has been and still is a synonym to fudged data.Every data from demographics to economics is fudged in Pakistan.Pakistan’s fear for real data is manifest in the fact that they have carried out a half hearted census after a good 20 years that too under military supervision(another first for any country worth it’s salt) and people have already started questioning its genuineness.Pakistan’s data on its economic and financial indicator is an another saga of fudged data. Mr Dar,your hapless finance minister will be in a better position to shed some light on it.
    Okay even if we ,for a second accept your point that due to fear from its Hindu radicals who will be out to kill Muslims as soon as they come to know that they are not 14%,but actually 22%,our govt (btw 2001 census was commissioned under BJP govt,now invent some other reason for them to fudge the data) deliberately showed them lower in numbers. Now after having become 22% of a country’s population you are still claiming that they are being persecuted in India ?

There is a constant flow of minorities from Pakistan and Bangladesh to India, how many Muslims left India for Pakistan or Bangladesh in recent years? nada or zilch! After 70 years in Pakistan, the Mohajir is still despised for his dark skin, short stature and lives on the scraps of Pakistani society. If India ever allowed the progeny of the Muslim Mohajir to come back to India, all of them would likely buy a one way ticket. I am from a refugee family from Pakistani Sargodha and my family believes the partition was the best thing that happened to them because we became winners instead of living among losers.Recommend

    Generally in industrialized nations there’s declining birth rates due to economic prosperity and birth control. That could be a reason in the decline in the Hindu population, with more smaller middle class families over the recent decades.

    Which could possibly mean the Indian Muslim population may not be faring as well. Or maybe there’s been also some Muslim refugees like the Rohingyas or other migrants, like Bangladeshis or Asians, that hide the same declining birth rates of local Indian Muslims elsewhere (not sure if these legal or illegal immigrants would be counted though, so this theory maybe out).

    Of course, I’m speculating. Unless there’s some legit unbiased UN report, lead by academics or experts in the field of statistics or census taking or something, and whether there really is systematic underrepresentation of millions of minority people reported (which is a possibility I’m not ruling out by prejudices of right-wing religious nationalists, who sadly lack professionalism and erode trust in whatever nation they maybe), I can’t take these conclusions seriously.

    Actually, this just reminded me of being upset about the inappropriate practices of census taking by some government workers in Karachi recently and how it may have skewed the ethnic population of the city.Recommend

    Vegetarian diet is healthy, no doubt, but it doesn’t increase fertility. Jains (who don’t even eat eggs) have grown by only 180 % from 1951 to 2011. Christians and Sikhs (who are not vegetarians), have increased by 235% & 222%.Recommend

  • Shakir Lakhani

    So why don’t you find out why Muslims have 5 kids and not the others? I can understand Indian Hindus living in cities practicing birth control (because their apartments are too small), but those living in villages would never dream of deliberately limiting their children, they want as many boys as possible to help them till their fields.Recommend

  • Shakir Lakhani

    It depends on the census enumerators, it’s up to them to register or not. I remember a Hindu female writer in TOI saying that her name was not on the voter’s list. Pakistan, on the other hand, has an advanced registration system which is the envy of many nations. In fact, some countries have even asked Pakistan to help them set up registration systems. But again, like everywhere, it depends on the person collecting and feeding the data into the system. Poor, illiterate Indian Muslims know that even if they complain, no one will listen to them.Recommend

    Christians have increased, while almost all Hindus/Sikhs left in 1947. I’m awaiting the publication of the recent census, so I can’t say much. Hindus are now concentrated mainly in Sindh, in Karachi I read there are 300,000 (there are also an estimated 700,000 Christians in Karachi).Recommend

    Lol! What a stupid question…. Parsis are reducing not because they are leaving India but because they are marrying outside their religion plus are having less children. So by your logic if Japanese population is reducing does it mean they are leaving Japan en masse??

    If a Parsi marries outside their religion they are thrown out of their religion and their children will not be Parsis. However if a child is born to parents who are both Parsis, the children’s entire education is take care by their community which is the richest and the most educated in IndiaRecommend

    This author spins his own hypothesis which would put a statistician to shame. He signs off with the most funny reason for Muslim population growth in India which I believe should be sent to Ripley’s Believe It or Not. Even a basic reading of economics and sociology shows that rampant religion sanctioned narrow mindedness towards family planning, illiteracy, poverty, polygamy and educational backwardness are the primary reason of Muslim population explosion everywhere and not just in India. It’s particularly secularism of countries like India which is aiding this rampant growth and consequently jihadi spread because a growing population needs more mosques and more Saudi trained jihadi mullahs. No wonder minorities decreased to insignificant numbers in Pakistan while the Muslim population continues to grow by leaps and bounds in India.Recommend

    As far as Pakistan’s system being the envy of world is concerned,the whole hue and cry made by your favourite Mr Imran Khan over the
    fudged election and bogus voting against Nawaz Sharif is a testament to that envy.Your NADRA is rather notorious for registering foreign nationals for a few bucks which include known terrorists like Mullah Mansur and many other like him.Hundreds of them including top officials are in dock for offences of ommission and commission.If you want the details i can provide you that too.They can perhaps give a tip or two on how to fudge the data and how a forged CNIC and fake passport for a terrorist is made which looks better than the original.Recommend

In fact, Islam is the religion which has the largest growth rate in the world, and according to one estimate, Muslims will be in the majority in EU in 30-50 years. India, of course, could be a Muslim-majority country much earlier, if Hindutva extremists don’t embark upon a mass killing program.Recommend
