Religion in North Cyprus

The majority of theTurkish Cypriots (98%) are Sunni Muslims, whilst a small number are Ahmadiyya Muslims. Turkish Cypriots are not conservative and many do not practice their religion. As they are overwhelmingly secular, alcohol is frequently consumed within the Cypriot community and most Turkish Cypriot women do not cover their heads. However, religion does still play a role within the community.
