100,000 Converts to Islam in UK During Past Decade

January 5, 2011

December 5 2011 –Militant Islam Monitor -According to a study for the charity Faith Matters undertaken by Swansea University the number of Muslim converts in the UK has nearly doubled in the last decade.

A majority of those converting are white women the study said. One attempt to explain the phenomenon came from an Imam who opined that "Women are hard – wired to reflect and think and take things seriously even from a young age". http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-12075931

The Daily Mail reported that the "average convert is a 27 year old white woman fed up with British consumerism and immorality". The article goes on to state that the study has raised fears regarding the "Islamification" of Britain. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1343954/100-000-Islam-converts-living-UK-White-women-keen-embrace-Muslim-faith.html
