UK Converts to Islam Seemingly on the Rise
by Enza Ferreri
Apparently Islam is on the rise in the UK not only because of the increasing number of Muslim immigrants and their progenies, but also due to the natives who convert to Islam either spontaneously or in order to marry Muslims.
A source says that the number of Britons converting to Islam has doubled between 2001 and 2011, and these are more women than men.
A January 2011 study by Kevin Brice of Swansea University, on behalf of the organization Faith Matters, calculated that the number of converts to Islam in the UK in 2001 was just over 60,000 and it may have risen to 100,000 in 2010.
