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