As per a data prediction released by Pew Research Centre, Hindu population will surpass other religion becoming third in population density by 2050.

As per the figures, Hindu density will shoot from a little over 1 billion to nearly 1.4 billion by 2050.

The report also stated that Muslims are predictable to grow faster than the world’s population and that Hindus and Christians are projected to roughly keep pace with the worldwide population.

“India will retain a Hindu majority but also will have the largest Muslim population of any country in the world, surpassing Indonesia,” it said.

According to the report, “Over the next four decades, Christians will remain the largest religious group, but Islam will grow faster than any other major religion.”

There were 1.6 billion Muslims in 2010, compared to 2.17 billion Christians.

“The number of Muslims will nearly equal the number of Christians around the world,” it added.

By 2050, Muslims will make up about 10 per cent of the Europe’s population, up from 5.9 per cent in 2010.
The projections considered fertility rates, trends in youth population growth and religious conversion statistics.

Over the same period, the number of Hindus in Europe is expected to roughly double, from a little under 1.4 million (0.2 per cent of Europe’s population) to nearly 2.7 million (0.4 per cent), mainly as a result of immigration, it said.
