Amhara’s Muslim population is growing faster than the rest of the country
By Amrita Shahramian and Arun Sharma in Amharyasandhra NewsSource: NewsweekAmhary as a region has been undergoing a major shift in recent years.
In the last few decades, the region’s Muslims have been moving out of their rural homelands and towards cities, while other sections of the society are migrating into the cities.
This is evident from the fact that Muslims constitute just 10% of the population of the region.
But since the mid-2000s, the area’s Muslim community has become increasingly urbanised, especially in the neighbouring state of Madhya Pradesh.
The Muslim population of Amhayasandra has grown from 6.9 million in 2000 to 8.4 million in 2010, and is projected to grow to 11.2 million by 2020.
Muslims comprise around 11% of all Amharis, but the Muslim community is much more urbanised in the state than in the rest.
In fact, the Muslims of Amhaasandras land are growing faster as a percentage of the state’s total population than in other parts of the subcontinent.
The percentage of Muslims in Amhapras land is estimated at 15.4% and it is projected that this will continue to rise, even as the rest, including the Christian community, is declining.
This is because, in spite of its rural population, Amhapraas land has been a stronghold of Hindu-Muslim harmony.
The region is home to more than 20 different religions, and it has been known as the place where Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs live together peacefully and harmoniously.
But the Muslim presence in Amhaashas land is growing at a faster rate than in any other part of the Indian subcontiurnts.
The majority of Muslims are of the Marathas or Vaishnavas sect.
They come from all over the region, and all of them live in close quarters.
This has led to a significant number of cases of communal violence in Amhawas land.
For example, the Hindu community has clashed with the Muslim communities of Amhaws and Bhaskar areas over their ownership of land.
Andhra Pradesh has witnessed a significant increase in the number of incidents of communal riots since 2000.
This, in turn, has led the Muslims to take to the streets, especially after the communal riots in 2009.
But despite the increase in Muslim violence in the last five years, the Muslim population in Amhas land is not as large as the Christian population.
It is estimated that Muslims in the region will reach 13.7 million in 2020.
The number of Muslims has been growing steadily since 2000, and the Muslims have also seen an increase in their numbers in the recent years, particularly in the Maratha region.
The Marathakas have the largest Muslim population and their number has been increasing since 2001.
The Muslims in this region are now about 10% Muslim.
The next-most-populous region is the Karnataka region, which has around 8.2% Muslim population.
The Amhapas and Karnataka regions have witnessed similar patterns of growth in the past few decades.
The Amhapa region has witnessed the fastest increase in Muslims in recent times, from 8.5 million in 1990 to 17.1 million in 2005.
And the Muslims are now the largest population of any of the states in the sub-continent, which is a result of the Hindu population migration and urbanisation.
This pattern has been reflected in Amharas land, too.
According to a 2010 report by the National Council for Applied Economic Research, the number and population of Muslims increased by 6.6% between 2000 and 2010 in Amhraas and Kannur regions.
The population of Hindus increased by 5.7%.
This was mainly due to a shift of the Muslims from rural areas to cities.
The increase in both the communities’ numbers is the result of an increase of Muslims to the suburbs, which also leads to a decrease in the population and a rise in the Muslim proportion in the area.
This demographic shift has contributed to the decline of Amhapares land, as the Muslim populations have moved out of the urban areas and into the suburbs.
In Amhaa and Kanyas regions, Muslims have now been living in their own neighbourhoods for the past three decades, and this has contributed in the growth of Muslim population there.
This also explains why the Muslim-majority areas of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, which have witnessed a large Muslim population growth in recent decades, have witnessed an increase or even a decline in their Muslim population numbers.
This trend is evident in the fact, that the Muslim Muslim population increased by almost 5% between 2004 and 2010, which was the largest increase of any Muslim community in the entire subcontiture.
This trend is also reflected in the high levels of violence between the Muslim and Christian communities.
The two communities have clashed repeatedly since the 1980s over ownership of lands in Amhamaras
