 For every 5,000 Pashtun Afghans, there is only 1 Christian.

Of the 12,047,000 Pashtuns in Afghanistan, 99.98% of them are Islamic. "Since the time of Alexander the Great, Afghanistan has been the site of both Eastern and Western invasions. As a result, the Pashtun tribes have been influenced by Indian Buddhists as well as African Muslims. However, Islam has been the chief religion of Afghanistan since the 10th century. Presently the Pashtun people are 99.98% Muslim.

The Islamic religion is very difficult to penetrate. Converts to Christianity will more than likely be banished from their families. Consequently, there has been very little growth of Christianity among the Pashtun. Most of the work by various missions agencies has ended due to unrest in the country. More recently, some of the "freedom fighters" have attacked Western relief agencies, causing them to flee from Afghanistan. Presently there are no Bibles in the Pakhtu language, and Christian radio and television broadcasts are strictly forbidden by the government."

In all of Afghanistan, there are approximately 28,177,000 people. 0.1% of them are Christians. That's ONE Christian for every 1,000 non Christians.
