Christianity in Uttar Pradesh
Christianity is a small minority in Uttar Pradesh, the largest state of India. Uttar Pradesh is within the territory of the Church of North India (a member of the Anglican Communion) and of the Archdiocese of Agra (Roman Catholic Church).
Christianity was first introduced to Uttar Pradesh during the reign of Mughal Emperor Akbar (1556-1605). Akbar was known for his secular theology. He sought out educated Jesuit Priests from Goa and gave them permission to bring Christianity to his people. However, Christianity in this state has long been a tiny, stagnant minority. In recent years many people are baptized, mainly in Protestant Christianity. 
During British Raj many people converted to Christianity, most of them employed in Indian Army or Government offices.  During the 1857 revolt, many Christians were forced to flee Uttar Pradesh or slaughtered by rebellions to take revenge from the United Kingdom.
