According to Muslims constitute over 5% of the population [1] However the CIA factbook claims that Muslims are less than 1% in Bhutan.[2] In 2009, the Pew Research Center estimated that 1% of the population, or 7,000 people, were Muslims. Bhutan only recognizes Buddhism as a religion and Islam has no recognition.[3]
