And, the answer for the the question is :



[STC002117] Albania is a small Adriatic country where some farmers still move their produce around on horse-drawn carts and houses painted in vibrant hues are a form of protest against the uniform shades of gray that were inflicted on them when the country was controlled by Communists. In addition, in contrast to the constraints that were imposed on Albanians before the fall of communism in 1990, the majority of Albanians now identify with a religious tradition. In the 2011 Census, 57% of the population classified as Muslim, 10% as Catholic, 7% as Orthodox, and 2% as Bektashi. Many of these individuals do not engage in religious practices because they were unable to form these routines as youngsters. Only 2.5% of those polled identified as atheists, yet a significant portion of those asked did not wish to answer either way. This stands in contrast to the mandate that Enver Hoxha issued in 1967 against religious places of worship, as well as the state-sanctioned efforts that Enver Hoxha made to enforce this mandate through imprisonment, intimidation, propaganda, and, ultimately, the recognition of atheism in the constitution.
