Religious people back American (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

hindus

'religious people' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'back american' is the wordplay.
'back' becomes 'hind' (synonyms).
'american' becomes 'us' (abbreviation for United States).
'hind'+'us'='HINDUS'

(Other definitions for hindus that I've seen before include "Members of great Indian religion" , "pundits?" , "Asians with faith" , "Religious people" , "Members of great religion in India" .)
