Posted on 21 November 2012

New findings a result of three years of studies.


More than 99 percent of the population in Southeast Asia, one of the most populous regions in the world, is Muslim.

This was revealed in a recent finding by researchers who are working on a population census of the 1.5 billion inhabitants in the northeast Australasia region.

One researcher leading the study, Seow Ting Dong, said: “It is really not important to know what religion are Southeast Asians, because they can be anything they want and we’ll still say they are Muslim.”
