Asian Lite Newsdesk compiles images from the Good Friday events across India. Christianity is India’s third-largest religion with approximately 27.8 million followers, constituting 2.3 percent of India’s population.

The works of scholars and Eastern Christian writings state that Christianity was introduced to India by Thomas the Apostle, who visited Muziris in Kerala in AD 52 to spread the gospel amongst Kerala’s Jewish settlements. Christianity was as such established in India even before some nations of Europe had been Christianised.

Christians are found all across India and in all walks of life, with major populations in parts of South India, the Konkan Coast, North-East. Indian Christians have contributed significantly to and are well represented in various spheres of national life. They include former and current chief ministers, governors and chief election commissioners. Indian Christians have the highest ratio of women to men among the various religious communities in India.
