Another speculating fact came out in a survey, Muslims will be the second largest religion in US by 2040, a study by Pew Research Center has suggested.CNN reported that studies was conducted in 2007, 2011 and 2017 with annual data from US Census, Pew concluded that the Muslim population is growing at an accelerated rate and will rise from an estimated 3.45 million in 2017 to an estimated 8.1 million in 2050.Muslims counting of the people will cross the Jewish population and will become the second largest group by 2040. Moreover, Pew analysis, the reason for the burgeoning Muslim population was twofold — a high rate of immigration and a high fertility rate. It said that around three quarters of the Muslim population in the US are immigrants or the children of immigrants.NBC quoted Besheer Mohamed, senior researcher at Pew, as saying that Pakistan, Iran, India and Afghanistan were among countries that sent the largest number of Muslims to the United States over the past decade.
