the world has changed- the increasing of moslem population

Reader comment on item: Swiss Minarets and European Islam

Submitted by bary soetoro (Indonesia), Jan 3, 2010 at 11:09

We must accept minaret as the increase of Islamic population in the world . We should realize that Islam will surpass christian in 2025, ready or not will its the facts.

Demographic considerations with regard to Muslim populations may prove to be of vital concern in the next millennium. When a large percentage of the population is older, this can affect the socio-political structure of a country. Likewise, when a large percentage of the population is young, that too will affect the socio-political structure of a country.

Here are some population statistics starting from the early 1900s as well as projected figures for the year 2025 of the total overall number of Muslims across the globe.
