Islam Will BeThe Biggest Religion In The World By 2070--- US Research
Islam will be world's largest religion by 2070, US based research claimed. According to the research which was carried out in Washington DC came to the conclusion because because of the higher fertility rate of Islam's followers. Christianity which is still the biggest global religion is expected to first lose its top ranking in France, Australia and United Kingdom, before the shift takes a more dramatic turn. David Voas, professor of Population Studies at England's Institute of Social and Economic Research. "The very rapid growth of population, combined with limited opportunities even for the educated young people, but particularly for less educated ones has created social and political tension and that has fueled thing like immigration to Western countries, political upheaval." The researchers have come to the point that both Islam and Christianity will have equal number of followers by 2050, before Islam overtakes the religion over the next 20 years. It is estimated that will grow up to 6.9 billion up to 2010, will have grown to 9.3 by 2050. Conrad said," We can be quite confident that Muslims are going to grow rapidly in the decades ahead."
