England may become a Muslim state: Says Russian ‘Pravda’

Relatively a recent phenomenon in the British Society; the role of Muslim individuals in Great Britain is getting more and more important. Muslims’ incomes are higher as opposed to those of Christians.There are a lot of Muslim real estate owners in Great Britain.
Recent opinion polls conducted among British Muslims aged from 25 to 34 showed that an average Muslim person makes up to 25 pounds sterling ($50,000) a year, which is a bigger number in comparison with an average Briton.
Unlike the Arab-Muslim community of France, the Islamic community of Great Britain leaves the native population behind in many aspects, slowly but surely.




According to the United Kingdom Office for National Statistics, the name Muhammad has become the second most popular name among male newborns in the country. The name Jack still tops the list of most popular English names, but it may not last for long.

Muhammad will leave Jack behind in coming years. No wonder: the number of newborn Muslims has increased by 12 percent during the recent seven years in Great Britain.

Men’s names of Muslim origin take the lead, although women’s names of oriental roots lag seriously behind. Aisha was the most popular name given to newborn girls in British Muslim families in 2006, although this name ranks only 110th on the list of most popular women’s names in Britain.

Many of them decide to change their religion in the endeavour to improve their financial well-being.

The role of Muslim individuals in the British society has been getting more and more important recently.

Muslims’ incomes are higher as opposed to those of Christians. There are a lot of Muslim real estate owners in Great Britain. Recent opinion polls conducted among British Muslims aged from 25 to 34 showed that an average Muslim person makes up to 25 pounds sterling ($50,000) a year, which is a bigger number in comparison with an average Briton. Unlike the Arab-Muslim community of France, the Islamic community of Great Britain leaves the native population behind in many aspects, slowly but surely.

The increasing popularity of the name Muhammad is connected with the growing number of young Muslim families in Britain.

Professor of Ethnic Relations at Warwick University, Muhammad Anwar said that Muslim parents try to exercise their ties with religion when they name their baby boy Muhammad. Young parents are certain that this name will bring happiness to their child. Many of Muslim adults believe that a boy with this name will grow into a good, well-mannered man.

British parents, who name their sons Muhammad, mainly originate from Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Arab countries.

The British Muslim community is the third biggest Muslim community in Europe after France and Germany.

A research conducted by analytical company Information Solutions showed that the majority of English Muslims reside in the north of England, especially in Yorkshire. The population census of 2001 revealed that English Muslim families counted 1.6 million people, which made up 2.8 percent of the total number of population. Needless to say that the birth rate among Muslim people is a lot higher than that of people of other confessions. This trend is expected to intensify in the future taking into consideration the increasing immigration from Asia.

Deputy Director of the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Vladimir Isayev, does not believe that the popularity of Muslim names on the British Isles should be considered as something alarming. “This is quite a traditional phenomenon for people originating from Islamic countries. Furthermore, it does not mean that England will turn into a Muslim state during the forthcoming couple of years. It may only happen in some 20 or 30 years, if it happens at all, of course. On the other hand, Europeans may disappear because of the ongoing Muslim immigration in European countries in about 120 years. But these are only forecasts. We can recollect the forecasts about crude reserves made in the 1970s. Then specialists used to believe that crude reserves would be exhausted on the planet in the beginning of the 21st century,” Isayev told NewsInfo website.

The growing popularity of the name Muhammad in Great Britain demonstrates the increasing influence of Muslims in the UK. However, it does not mirror the real influence of Islam on the country. It is worthy of note that many Muslims give their children English names so that it could be easier for them to integrate in the English society. This way or other, England may become an Islamic country in the future. If this theory becomes a reality, London may change the character of its relations with Russia because Russia traditionally stands on the sides of its Muslim partners in international policies.

Russia will have to ease its stance on the North Korean problem to preserve its sympathies in the Muslim world. In addition, future Russian administrations will have to support Arab movements that harbor anti-Israeli sentiments.

The notion of the Muslim world unites hundreds of millions of Arabs, Persians, Pakistanis and many other nationalities. Vladimir Isayev said in an interview with NewsInfo website that many France-based people of Arab origin proudly refer to themselves as the French. It may mean that European countries will not change their political traditions if Muslims are going to dominate their population.

Europe is proud of its unity, although recent events connected with oil and gas deliveries from Russia and the deployment of the US missile defense system have proved the opposite. “Muslim Europe” may pose a potential danger for Russia against the background of Russian problems in the Caucasus, which is also dominated by the Muslim population. Russia will have to preserve its anti-US political course to avoid that because the USA is believed to be a satanic state for the Muslim world.

  1. I don’t think measuring population growth statistics is quite the same as measuring the depletion of natural resources and so, I believe the data to extrapolate future measures of religion and civil society, nationality and civil society is far better grounded then measuring petroleum use. We know, for instance, that the growth of the Hispanic population in both the states of Arizona and California has been dramatic but we knew this would occur many years ago based on birth rates and immigration statistics. It makes sense then that we can accurately predict population growth rates far better then we can predict the results of petroleum use over decades.

    That said, Islam appears to be growing in western cultures that were typically devoid of Islamic elements for the most part.

    For me, this means Israeli influence in western cultures is headed for another catastrophic event to alter public opinion further against Islam.

    I apologize for bringing such a thought to the fore in an article that discusses strictly population issues but that’s how I see it, from an Atheists perspective.

  2. You can eleminate a loin but not the mosquito .Over breeding is an adaptation to servive in which death is not important , the importbnt thing is servival and replacement of others .Jslam has also adopted this natural philosophy as such .The follower of Islam do not following family planning norms.

  3. Jeff, if am not wrong, late Chairman Mao Tse Tung of China used to say “Family planning is a capitalist approach to stem the tide of proletariat”, what the present leadership in China may think, is another matter though. But the late Chairman never did agree to postulates of capitalists particularly the birth control aka family planning.
    Tewari seems to be oblivioius of the population phenomena and tries to look everything in term of Muslims vs. others. In fact birth control is mostly popular in well educated, well to do families. The poor take it as their strength [more children, more bread earners]. Whatever the governments may endeavor through state functionaries, sitting in their luxurious air conditioned offices planning birth control for the masses who live in slums, no facilities for good education, housing, sanitation and if their children at all do get access to education, there are no jobs for them [for they neither have the money to fill in the pockets of state functionaries nor have political connections to muster jobs for the kids]. So the poor world over practice this and they include all poverty ridden masses no matter to which religion do they belong to.
    Population growth in a country like England is a quite different phenomena which the writer of this post has tried to analyze in a European perspective where Muslims living since many generations have acquired affluence in contrast to their brothers in faith in home countries.

  4. We see much the same here in the USA Nayyar. As time passes the civil society in all western countries will need to be controlled because little by little people are becoming aware of the invisible control exerted by the state. The more we become aware, the more the Oligarchs will exert control.

    Worse, the larger the Muslim or Islamic population grows in western societies the more control will be exerted.

    And even worse still, as the Muslim or Islamic population in western countries develops an awareness of western strategies and Zionist agendas, the control will be forceful and strong willed.

    All very sad to me.

    At this point western Oligarchs fear the White Anglo-Saxon Proletariat just as much as the Muslim Proletariat, for good reason. We’re pissed off white Americans.

  5. @ Jeff . It is the quality not quantity that counts .Those who are thinking that by bringing about demographic change they will be able to dominate in the world are just like Ostrich in the desert .By inserting his head in the sand he feel safe .Lool Israel with a very small population having potential to defeat its enemy not only in Arab but any where in the world . . The crisis in the muslim world will further increase with such a mentality .

  6. @Tewari,
    BEAT ABOUT THE BUSH? [Not George W. Bush].

    The post by Pravda nowhere mentions that Muslims are trying to dominate the world through demographic escalations. This is a self conceived hypothesis
    [imagination nearing a hallucination] and therefore doesn’t seem to hold any ground neither for the Muslims nor for anybody else.

  7. At no time did I espouse the position that Muslims are trying to dominate the world. I have 200 Muslim connections on Facebook and spend a good deal of time translating Arabic to converse with people in Gaza, Cairo, Tunisia, Iran and other Muslim dominated countries. My Muslim friends are far more peaceful, far more intellectual, far more intelligent and far more loving then any Christians I’ve ever met.

    BUT, based on demographics and birth rates Muslims will eventually be a large and majority driving force behind global events.

    Israel? That den of vipers? That cabal of murdering genocidal monsters? That sociopathic criminal camarilla? That sect of psychopaths? They are in the process of committing global suicide by posturing with and supporting an Apartheid and racist state of killers.

    1. @ Anonymous,
      You are right, there are not only angered Muslims in the Caucasus but terribly disturbed and to say it more aptly tormented souls over there in the Kavkaz. So their sentiments against Russians are extreme, which do turn into violence as well.
      I’m only afraid of their struggle for more rights [as autonomous regions / countries within the Soviet Federation or as independent states] may not be hijacked by the CIA, Mossad and other vested interests as it happened in the past.

      Muslims in Caucasus as well as those in places such as Xinjiang province in China, Mindanao in the Philippines, and in other places should not forget the lesson the Afghans have learned the hard way; by fighting their war of liberation against the Soviets with support [all overt and covert operations, though the covert operations too are overt today] and now are paying the price of getting support of the rogue agencies.

  8. I also have many muslim friendS but most of them are just superficial friend having much difference on different issues .

  9. @ Ben , It is not practically possible but keep on doing efforts to change their mentality through righ education and be vigilent.

  10. Islam is a nation in itself. It does not recognize any sovereign boundaries. The constitution is the Koran which asks Muslims to kill infidels.

  11. @ Don .You are absolutely correct .Now Muslims are the most confused community in the world is trying to establish the philosophical superiority of Koran.

  12. Islam will take over Europe and North America very soon. We have large families and we stick together in a joint family system espousing the family values. My mom has 8 children and my elder sister (20 years old) has 3 children. We will take over your countries and become strong. Time is coming when you too will be with us as co religionists..
