Q: is there an orthodox christian community in Hindustan?
Anonymous

orthopraxis:

There are Oriental Orthodox in India, especially in the southern state of Kerala. However, Eastern Orthodoxy does not have an established presence in South Asia. I do know there have been at least one community established in Pakistan. In India, I think I once read some mention of some Eastern Orthodox in Bengal. (Not sure though; it was a long time ago.) I don’t know if these were non-Indians that lived there though.
