The land of believers: In India, just 33,000 people are atheists.

India is a land of believers.

Only 33,000 people declared themselves atheists in the 2011 census that puts India’s population at 1.2 billion.

Nearly half of the atheists are women. And seven out of every 10 atheists live in rural India, the data released earlier this week shows.

This is the first time in recent years that census data in public domain puts a number on atheists, people who do not believe in the existence of God. The 2001 report – the census is done every 10 years -- said “only a handful few claim to be atheist”.
