Islam to Topple Christianity as Singapore’s Second Largest Religion by 2050

What’s Happening to the Racial Balance Strategy of the Country?

By 2050, Islam will replace Christianity as Singapore’s second-largest religion after Buddhism.

Muslim Population SurgingA report in Singapore’s Today newspaper has highlighted that there will be a significant increase in Muslim and Hindu population in the country due to migration from Malaysia and India.

This is a surprise as I have always believed that Singapore strictly maintains a racial balance even as it goes about with a massive immigration drive. Was I wrong in assuming that Singapore was making every effort to keep the population ratio among the different races stable?

The basis of the newspaper report is a study by the Washington-based pollster Pew Research Centre which also states that Muslims will outnumber Christians worldwide by 2070 owing to the high fertility rates among its adherents.

“Globally, Muslims have the highest fertility rate, an average of 3.1 children per woman — well above replacement level (2.1), the minimum typically needed to maintain a stable population,” said the report.

Muslims will  form the majority of the people in many of today’s Christian powers, including  the United Kingdom, Australia, France, the Netherlands and New Zealand.
