Muslim Youths in Banke and Kapilvastu - Issue 29
PDF File Size: 148 KB | Download   
Muslims in Nepal are found in greatest numbers in the Tarai districts. Although they constituted a mere 2.7% of the total population in 1981, their numbers are increasing; rising to 3.3% in 1991 and to 4.27% in the 2001 census. This increasing number may be due to their higher fertility and growth rates as well as the gradual reduction in under counting as the previous censuses were often criticized by minority groups. Although the 2011 census results are yet to be published given this increasing trend it is likely that at present Muslims constitute no less than six percent of the population. As noted below, in spite of being a significant minority, their sociology economic conditions remain poor and their numbers belie their visibility. In a fast growing population, the number of children and youth are usually high in the typical bottom heavy age pyramid of demographic structure. It is noteworthy that nearly 30% of Nepal’s population is between 15-29 years old This field bulletin on Muslim youths in the two districts (Banke and Kapilvastu) with the highest proportion of Muslim population (21.10% and 19.42% respectively) in the country, examines the situation of some Muslim communities in Nepal.Given the higher fertility rate amongst Muslims their percentage is likely to be even higher.
