Britain, Spain and Holland will have an even higher proportion of Muslims in a shorter amount of time, an investigation by The Telegraph shows.
Last year, five per cent of the total population of the 27 EU countries was Muslim. But rising levels of immigration from Muslim countries and low birth rates among Europe"s indigenous population mean that, by 2050, the figure will be 20 per cent, according to forecasts which also means one in five Europeans will be Muslims. Data gathered from various sources indicate that Britain, Spain and Holland will have an even higher proportion of Muslims in a shorter amount of time.
Europe"s Muslim population has more than doubled in the past 30 years and will have doubled again by 2015. In Brussels, the top seven baby boys" names recently were Muhammad, Adam, Rayan, Ayyub, Mahdi, Amin and Hamza.
