Immigration and Islam are significant in the media at the moment. With the UK having more Muslim immigrants than ever, and rumours that the UK will be a majority Muslim country in around 3 or 4 decades time, alongside the possibility that Britain could be under Sharia Law.
Do you think there is a chance of this happening? It would break my heart if it did and I would leave the country.
What would you do?
It won’t so it’s not something I consider.
Very few muslims are actually practising by the 3rd generation, I would guess from my Secondary School muslim friends to what I see on snapchat now, less than 33% are still fully practicing, the rest are just cultural muslims
how to cause controversy 101
Any new laws have to be signed off by the queen, so even if we elected a muslim PM supporting sharia law how will the queen support it
Also I highly doubt muslim population will grow to that extent
The Muslim population is currently no more than 8.5% in the UK.
Attempts to overstate such a number and pretending it would reach more than 50% is no more than faulty scaremongering.
However, if the hypothetical situation ever arose, I'd be in Australia long before it ever happened.
"rumours" yes very scientific. There are also rumours that the Her Majesty et al. are also lizards in disguise.
But to humor you I wouldnt care, as such, I would be interested in whether it would be Sunni or Shia though.
if you look at the immigration figures and the rates of growth this strongly suggest this will happen. I accept the possibility that these figures may not continue and may slow etc however I think anyone who thinks logically about this and actually looks at the numbers realises this is a strong possibility.
I do not intend to stay for this by that point we may not have the option to get out anyway. I intend to leave this country before that eventuality.
