Who Is Bobby Jindal?

From Bobby Jindal's moment in the spotlight by Ewen MacAskill:

He was born and raised a Hindu, but converted to Catholicism and also has links to Protestant churches. Unusually for a Rhodes scholar, he believes in creationism, a viewpoint that increases his appeal to Christian evangelicals.

Jindal's politics are firmly on the Republican right: he is opposed to abortion, embryonic stem cell research, gay marriage and the moratorium on offshore oil and gas drilling.

One of the most controversial incidents from his past was a claim to have witnessed an exorcism, though he has since partly rowed back on that.
