Well in my experience it has only been the religions of the Abrahamic faith, specifically Christian, that have gone out of their way to send missionaries etc to spread their "faith". To be more specific it is the Jehovah Witnesses and Mormons, if we want to talk denominations. I have never been approached by any non-Christian religion (even Abrahamic ones) in attempts for conversion. Though I am also aware of other Christian denominations that send missionaries to "third world" countries.

I have only had JW come to my home (not my Religion & wasn't interested). No one from any other Religion. I have never ever been approached in public by anyone trying to convert me to any Religion either. I guess it's more prevalent in other parts of the country by all that I read here on CM & the complaints about trying to be converted. It seems odd to me.

In my experience (the US viewpoint), minus obvious cults, mainly only Christian denominations: JV's, Mormons & to a lesser extent Baptists & Methodists (I grew up in the south). But, also in certain areas of the country, Scientologists do actively try to convert.
