First some basic data. There are 7 billion people on planet earth. Out of which 2 billion are Muslims. 50% of of them are in the African continents and another 30% are in Asia. On the overall, earth is inhabited by human beings with various religion where 33% are Christians, Muslims 21%, Hindus 13%, Chinese Folk 6.4%, Sikhs 0.3%, Jews 0.2%, and others.
Christian growth has stagnated globally while Islam's numbers have almost doubled, according to one researcher. In a report by Dick Slikker, of the Christian mission consultancy group Project Care, information from the World Christian Database reveals that; Christians made up 34.5 per cent of the world's population in 1900, while in 2010 they were 32.9 per cent.
This is contrasted with Islam's growth over the same period, at 12.3 per cent of the population in 1900, rising to 22.5 per cent by 2010. The data shows that the number of Muslims exceeded the number of Roman Catholics in the early 1980s.
Growth and decline in the Christian churches has been divided across various regions, but the general pattern has been that more 'western' industrialized countries have seen their Christian population’s decline, while developing countries are seeing increased growth, reasons of which will become apparent in the following paragraphs..
Ironically, since 9/11, there has been chain of events relating to religious beliefs. As a result of one Osman Bin laden and some Arab’s with box cutters, Islam has taken center stage and have been receiving massive media coverage, mostly of the negative aspects and circumstances. Simultaneous to the Western Media’s indirect subliminal messages that Islam is bad and not a religion of peace as proclaimed, has been manifesting the worse out of any given religion.
Loud, extreme Islamic practices, benighted laws and arrogance procured by demagogue Islamic leaders around the world had made it an easy picking for the Muslim haters to propagate Islamaphobea. The Muslims themselves are finding it hard and stressful to remain as a Muslim, particularly in countries like Pakistan, Iran, Saudi, Afghanistan, Africa and Malaysia – where hypocrisy and political tyranny overshadows Islam as the religion of peace.
I have learned that during the peak of U.S. Campaign “War Against Terror”, a German scholar Pierre Vogel responded to public forum on links between Islam and terrorism and he replied them with questions:
- Who started the First World War?
- Who started the Second World War?
- Who is trying to start a Third World War?
- Who has killed 20 million Australian members?
- Who throw a nuclear bomb on Nagasaki and Hiroshima?
- Who has killed more than 100 million Indians in North America?
- Who has killed more than 50 million Indians in South America?
- Who was caught with 180 million Africans, of which 88% died and were thrown into the Atlantic Ocean?
Right now, the master of terrorist is plotting for a Third World War and it looks like we are their loyal campaigners.
In the most resent, apart from political figures within, we have seen groups of other religion (Christians, Buddhist, Hindus, Tom, Dick and Harry), atheist or otherwise are all at once jumping into the bandwagon of Islam bashing, at any given opportunity. Absurd critism against Islam is being launched to a point amplifying that Prophet Muhammad is a pedophile, or every crime committed by an individual with a Muslim name is alleged to be motivated by martyrism and the 72 houris in the life thereafter. It is sickening, exhausting for the general, liberal minded Muslims having to persistently read such attacks and often take up positions as an attorney of Islam. I can’t help to take notice that such persistent vitriol are mainly coming from the 13% Hindus and the 0.3% Sikhs. Small groups throwing stones from a glass house. Perhaps their declining positions and the tyranny of Islamic extremist behaviors are burning them inside out. If only their far fetch theories and vitriol has any tangible basis, they won’t be around with 2 billion terrorist surrounding them. Their attacks seems they never had a Muslim friend or neighbor. But their wish might come through. With more Muslim haters, gullible and react to every bit of a second hand, customized, doctored media reports, dwelling in on daily basis, trying to be the superior judge of which religion is better than the other.
It is apparent today, that despite planet earth is populated by 7 billion people, from a cocktail of religious, cultural and political beliefs, about 1% are in control of the 89% by using the 10% of the retards from the sick and demagogues committing murders, torture, rape, terrorism, child molestation, human trafficking, human mutilation and more unthinkable crimes for any reasons out of their twisted mind. They go by many names like Tamil Elam, French Revo, Sicarii Zealots, Ku Klux Klan, Russian Tsar, NAZI, Khalistan, Fenian Brotherhood, Irish Republic, Hezbollah, HAMAS, Mikhail Bakumin, Eric Moletata, Mafia, RAF Columbia, Kurdistan, Ba’ath Party, Abu Sayyaf, Sulu, Taliban, Al-Qaeda, Alpha 66 and Omega 7, Army of God, Aryan Nations, Black Liberation Army, The Covenant, The Sword, and the Arm of the Lord, Earth Liberation Front, Jewish Defense League, May 19th Communist Organization, The Order, Phineas Priesthood, Tausug, Symbionese Liberation Army, United Freedom Front, Weathermen and not to forget the “CIA”; the Muslim haters propagated by Western media will help to handpick, dust off, the crimes committed by a scumbag with a Muslim and sensationalize it whilst crimes committed by non-Muslims will not hit the newsstand.
However, this is not in the minds of the Muslims (with an exception to Pakistan). Islamic leaders need to re-engineer their mental faculties in understanding the current times. Greed for money and power must be removed from any role or contribution to religion. To the contrary, with the increasing Islamic population by 1.5% per year is a worrying trend for the West against the declining Christian population. This may deprived the west from economic monopoly and will never able to control the world.
Two things must happen quick, religious leaders need to unplug their heads from the mud and remove politicians from religion and money. Failing which, all religious institutions will become redundant and chaotic and the master of terrorist gets his wish.
