Not sure how this got missed, but India is NOT A Muslim nation (the majority are Hindu with less than 15% Muslim). PAKISTAN is a Muslim nation, with over 95% of the population following Islam.
There have been (will be) wars over this difference.
The entire screw up that was the British Partition of India revolved around this difference.
While India isn't a Muslim nation, 2010 figures
put it as the third highest Muslim population nation (~177 million), after Indonesia (~205 million) & Pakistan (~178 million).
Bangladesh is in 4th place (~149 million), so maybe
RoCE is referring to the Indian sub-continent as a whole? Dunno. *shrug*
Edit: This page
appears to have more recent figures for Muslim population by country (though I can't see a source for the figures cited anywhere obvious) it still has the same countries in the top 4 positions.
