Islam will become largest religion in the world by 2070, says report | Jamhuriat

Yes, you read it right, “Islam will become largest religion in the world by 2070“.

A recent research found Islam is growing faster than world’s population and is all set out to become the largest religion in the world by 2070.

US-based Pew Research Centre published this report after analysing various demographic changes around the world’s major religions and stated that the world’s Muslims population will grow by 73 per cent between 2010 and 2050, as compared to 35 per cent for Christians, the next fastest-growing religion in this race.

The Pew Research Centre report also predicts that Atheists, agnostics and non-religious are set to decrease from 16.4 per cent to 13.2 per cent by 2050 despite gaining some popularity in America and some European countries.

Islam will become largest religion in the world

While Some Countries are taking it as an alarming threat, seeing the rapidly increasing terror attacks of Islamic State of Iraq and Syria in the recent years throughout the world including Islamic Countries like Afghanistan, Pakistan and many others as well.

It is to be noted that the main reason of conflict between various sections of Islam is the ideology, these different section of Islam society. While the Sufi Islamists are more tolerant and are devoted towards praying the lord and making songs and prayers in the name of Allah, the other sections which include Wahabi Muslims and some Radical Sunni Muslims have adopted a more Radical approach and believe in conquering the entire world and establishing a caliphate. These radical islamists want Sharia Law to be implemented through out the world.

The differences in ideology is not limited to this. The Shia Muslims and Sunni Muslims are in a constant fight within themselves as well. In the past few years, the number of attacks on Shia Muslim shrines and Mosques by Radical Wahabi and Sunni Muslims has increased a lot.

When we talk on a global Scale, Sunni Muslims have a much larger population as compared to Shia Muslims.

If these continues, not only these countries but the entire world.
