    I don't think this is likely. :holmes:
    Ooops sorry I meant both secularization and ex-muslims is growing faster than growth of Muslims (I guess it's just 'secularisation' then since ex-Muslims are usually irreligious).

    A possibility when you have extremists like this.

    It's a virtual impossibility that Muslims will make up the majority. They currently make up 4.5% of the population. To become the majority any time soon they would have to undergo an unprecedented population explosion which I think has rarely been seen in human history before, it's just not going to happen.

    Also, apparently from 2017 onwards the state will only pay child benefits for 2 children which will hopefully lower the excessive birth rates of the unemployed Muslims in the UK.
    Oh of course i am aware of that. I guess i am talking in a couple of hundred years which is not a given or even likely
