Religious persecution and unrest was the foundation for the conflicts that resulted in the separation from Indonesia. Indonesia is fundamentally a Muslim country (in fact, the largest Muslim country in the world). Since WWII, there was constant violence against this Christian minority, resulting in the UN mandate to interfere.

According to the 2010 census, 96.9% of the population profess Catholicism; 2.2% Protestantism or Evangelicalism; 0.3% are Muslim; and 0.5% practice some other or no religion
