Religion
Christianity, introduced into Cambodia by Roman Catholic missionaries in 1660, made little headway, at least among the Buddhists. In 1972 there were probably about 20,000 Christians in Cambodia, most of whom were Roman Catholics.
Islam is the religion of a majority of the Cham (also called Khmer Islam) and Malay minorities in Cambodia.
Highland tribal groups, most with their own local religious systems, probably number fewer than 100,000 persons.
