Communities where He is least known

Hindu

The least-reached people of Mauritius are the Muslims and the Hindu. The Hindu in Mauritius originated from India. Many subgroups exist among them, the best known being the Brahmins, or “priestly” community. They form the religious backbone of Hinduism in that region. Hindus represent nearly half of the population in Mauritius.

Some scholars say that the number of Hindu gods exceeds 35 million. Most of the deities are believed to be good and evil in nature. Only the gospel of Jesus Christ has the power to break through these religious barriers that have kept the Hindus bound in spiritual and physical poverty.
