So what's wrong with Muslims being a majority?

Reader comment on item: Predicting a Majority-Muslim Russia

Submitted by Taha (United States), Oct 26, 2011 at 19:28

Sorry I am having a hard time understanding the problem here. Muslims have been in today's Russia from before the Russians themselves were on that land. North Caucasus, southern Russia and many parts of central and northern Asia have been Muslim for over 1000 years. Russians conquered those lands in the last 300-400 years and imposed their religion and culture on the conquered people (it could have been concluded as the death of Muslim culture at that point, but the Muslim culture survived same as Christian culture survived in Spain and Palestine despite many hundred yrs of Muslim rule and Hindu culture survived in India). If the Muslims increase in population, they are not asking to break Russia up. It will still remain one country with a stronger Muslim character. This is the natural human cycle.
