Mr. Soetero of Indonesia writes:

"Its very interesting to search why one of the biggest hinduism country in the world( Majapahit) become the biggest Islamic country in the world(Indonesia) on 1520, and nothing reported big war in between."

Very easy to explain - Islam thrives in regions where there is little or no education. Throw in a little coercion - and you have instant ummah expansion.
