Islam is the largest religion of Turkey. Around 99.8% percent of the population is registered as Muslim.[1][2] Most Muslims in Turkey are Sunnis forming about 80%, and Alevis of the Shia-sect form about 20% of the Muslim population. There is also a Twelver Shia community which forms about 3% of the Muslim population. Christians (Oriental Orthodoxy, Greek Orthodox and Armenian Apostolic) and Jews (Sephardi), who comprise the non-Muslim population make up 0.7% of the total.
