Human Rights: Countries: Fiji


In Fiji, Hindus constitute approximately 27.9% of the population and comprise the second largest religious community in the country behind Christians (64.5%). Fijian Hindus historically faced discriminatory treatment, hate speech, and violent attacks on temples. Conditions improved significantly in 2009, and there had been no religiously motivated attacks until 2014 when a Hindu religious school was vandalized and desecrated.
