The article by a NGO which says by 2100 the Christians would outnumber the Muslims in Malaysia
This has to go down as one of the most preposterous articles I have ever read. I am flabbergasted as to how Muafakat even got such statistics
Statistics are only accurate if the research was done properly. In this case, was any research even done?
Mr Abdul Karim Omar rightly pointed out that currently, Christians make up around 10% of the population of Malaysia. Meanwhile, the Muslims form more than 60% of the entire Malaysian population
How is it even possible that by 2100 there will be more Christians than Muslims?
Theory 1: The existing Muslims will convert to Christianity. Oh wait, it’s illegal in Malaysia to propagate any religion to the Muslims. Furthermore, it’s close to impossible to convert out of Islam (in Malaysia at least)
Theory 2: There will be an influx of Christians in Malaysia. Using statistics from IndexMundi, as of July 2013, there were about 2,696,184 Christians and 17,895,549 Muslims (figures rounded up based on a total population of 29,628,392).
Assuming there are 44,827,758 Malaysians by 2100 and the number of believers of other religions do not increase and there is only an influx of Christians, we’re talking about 15,199,365 Christians migrating to Malaysia in 9 decades (the percentage of Christians and Muslims in Malaysia would be exactly 40% as claimed by Mr Abdul Karim Omar). Thats around 168,882 people per year
Seems not a lot? Do take into account that since we achieved independence 56 years ago, there are only 2,696,184 Christians. On average thats about 48,146 new Christians per year.
And still we havent taken into account the fact that the Muslim population as well as the number of believers of other faiths will increase with time. Mind = blown. It’s close to impossible for this scenario to happen
Based on my simple calculations, I can already conclude that it would be easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for the situation mentioned by Mr Abdul Karim Omar to happen. Then again, I’d love to see the statistics based on his alleged research. That would definitely help me reach a more accurate conclusion
