UK: Muslim Population Rising Ten Times Faster Than Rest of Population

And, the Christian population is dropping.

The Muslim population in Britain has grown by more than 500,000 to 2.4 million in just four years, according to official research collated for The Times

The population multiplied 10 times faster than the rest of society, the research by the Office for National Statistics reveals. In the same period the number of Christians in the country fell by more than 2 million. 

Experts said that the increase was attributable to immigration, a higher birthrate and conversions to Islam during the period of 2004-2008, when the data was gathered. They said that it also suggested a growing willingness among believers to describe themselves as Muslims because the western reaction to war and terrorism had strengthened their sense of identity. 

Muslim leaders have welcomed the growing population of their communities as academics highlighted the implications for British society, integration and government resources. 

David Coleman, Professor of Demography at Oxford University, said: “The implications are very substantial. Some of the Muslim population, by no means all of them, are the least socially and economically integrated of any in the United Kingdom ... and the one most associated with political dissatisfaction. You can't assume that just because the numbers are increasing that all will increase, but it will be one of several reasonable suppositions that might arise.” 

Professor Coleman said that Muslims would naturally reap collective benefits from the increase in population. “In the growth of any population ... [its] voice is regarded as being stronger in terms of formulating policy, not least because we live in a democracy where most people in most religious groups and most racial groups have votes. That necessarily means their opinions have to be taken and attention to be paid to them.” 

There are more than 42.6 million Christians in Britain, according to the Office for National Statistics, whose figures were obtained through the quarterly Labour Force Survey of around 53,000 homes. But while the biggest Christian population is among over-70s bracket, for Muslims it is the under-4s. 

Ceri Peach, Professor of Social Geography at Manchester University, said that the rapid growth of the Muslim population posed challenges for society. “The groups with the strongest belief in the family and cohesion are those such as the Pakistanis and Bangladeshis. They have got extremely strong family values but it goes together with the sort of honour society and other kinds of attributes which people object to,” he said. “So you are dealing with a pretty complex situation.” 

Professor Peach said that the high number of Muslims under the age of 4 — 301,000 as of September last year — would benefit Britain's future labour market through taxes that would subsequently contribute to sustaining the country's ageing population. He added, though, that it would also put pressure on housing and create a growing demand for schools. “I think housing has traditionally been a difficulty because the country is simultaneously short of labour and short of housing. So if you get people to fill vacancies in your labour force you also need to find places for them to live,” he said. 

Muhammad Abdul Bari, general secretary of the Muslim Council of Britain, predicted that the number of mosques in Britain would multiply from the present 1,600 in line with the rising Islamic population. He said the greater platform that Muslims would command in the future should not be perceived as a threat to the rest of society. 

“We each have our own set of beliefs. This should really be a source of celebration rather than fear as long as we all clearly understand that we must abide by the laws of this country regardless of the faith we belong to,” he said. 

The Cohesion Minister, Sadiq Khan, told The Times: “We in central Government and local authorities need to continue our work to ensure that our communities are as integrated and cohesive as possible.” 

Growing numbers

Holy shit! Better start saving for my EB5 visa to get out of here.

Hand on heart though I don't think it's going to carry on much longer before people start to realise. Whilst our government is current PC crazy there is a vast majority out there that are inherently xenophobic and have no problem in taking the law into their own hands, see this link for example:

That is the solution.

I don't think there are any other reasonable solutions.

The only other solutions are Religio/Ethnic Cleansing or genocide and both of those are inherently evil, in my opinion.

The problem is, if our governments do not sit up, recognize the problem, and do something about it with the law, then the result will be either

1) we lose


2) the people will take matters into their own hands and solve the problem through evil means

Therefore, really, it all comes down to the government. The law or the blood, it's their decision.

Muslim family planning - they don't make a secret of their intentions.

Yep! However....most Americans have pay for medical and hospital care...our new "Masters" don't worry about such trivialities.

Here's an unsettling though; The USA certainly has a Mozlim population that is 10 time greater than that of the UK.

Is "fucking" another form of "work that Americans won't do"????

In all seriousness, getting British men and women to have sex won't be enough, even if they get rid of all those that aren't willing to live under British law. They are going to have to figure out some way of encouraging large families, and at the same time getting those children properly raise so that they accept British values.
