Dear Susan , I wrote :

Now I have come across a website that fills in that gap .


Muslims (Hanafites) 63%
Atheists 21%
Non-religious 16% Christians: 0% Remarkably enough "800,000 Chechen have never heard the name of Jesus" and " there is no Bible in the Chechen language"! Well, they are purer than Arabs then. All Arabs have heard the name of Jesus and there is an Arabic translation of the Bible!
