Islam will be most followed religion by 2070: Research

WASHINGTON: Islam will be the word’s largest religion by 2070, US based researchers have claimed.

According to the research which was carried out in Washington DC came to the conclusion because of the higher fertility rate of Islam’s followers.

Christianity which is still the most popular 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 for Social and Economic Research, said: “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 therefore political tensions and that has fueled things like immigration to Western countries, political upheaval.”

The researchers came to the point that both Islam and Christianity will have an equal amount of followers by 2050, before Islam overtakes the religion over the next 20 years.

It is estimated that population of earth will grow up to 6.9 billion to in 2010 – will have grown to 9.3 billion in 2050.

Conrad Hackett, said: “We can be quite confident that Muslims are going to grow rapidly in the decades ahead.”
