The Hindu population in Pakistan in 2023 is estimated to be around 3.8 million, or 1.6% of the total population.
This makes Pakistan the country with the fifth-largest Hindu population in the world, after India, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Indonesia.
The majority of Hindus in Pakistan live in the Sindh province, followed by the Punjab province and the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.
There are also small Hindu communities in the Balochistan province and the Gilgit-Baltistan region.
Hinduism has been practiced in Pakistan for centuries. The earliest evidence of Hindu civilization in the region dates back to the Indus Valley Civilization, which flourished from around 3300 to 1300 BCE.
The Hindu population in Pakistan has declined significantly since the country's independence in 1947. This is due to a number of factors, including partition, religious persecution, and economic hardship.
The Hindu community in Pakistan faces a number of challenges, including discrimination, violence, and forced conversions. However, there are also a number of organizations working to promote the rights of Hindus in Pakistan.
