Hinduism is one of the Religions practiced in After the End. Hindu is the only religion within the Dharmic religious group.

Description[]

"Hinduism is not a single religion so much as a blanket term for the successor faiths of ancient Indian polytheism as recorded in the Vedas. Post-Event Hinduism differs radically from pre-Event Hinduism in several key ways. For example, the vast majority of Hindus now reject the caste system, believing instead that all humans are spiritually equal. Proselytization towards non-Hindus has also become more common. Although Hindu minorities exist throughout the Caribbean, the only realm in the Americas that has Hinduism as a state religion in 2666 is the Kingdom of Guyana." ― In-Game description of Hindu

History[]

Hinduism was brought to the Americas by English colonists, who imported the natives of India as slave labor in the Guyana colony. Ever since, Guyana and Suriname have had a sizable Hindu minority (until, that is, it became the majority after the Event).
