Religion in Réunion
The predominant religion in Réunion is Roman Catholicism, with Hinduism, such as Murugan cults with Christian influence, Islam, Chinese folk religion and Buddhism also represented amongst others. In Réunion, all religions are freely practiced, without government persecution. Because religious censuses are banned in France and this also applies in Réunion, all religion statistics are estimates. Religious Intelligence estimates Christians to be 84.9% of the population, Hindus 6.7% and Muslims 2.15%. Most large towns have a mosque, allowing the Muslims communities to practice their religion.
