Britain’s capital city is now “more Islamic than many Muslim countries,” a leading Shia scholar said.
By 2020, estimates are that the number of Muslims attending prayers will reach at least 683,000, while the number of Christians attending weekly services will drop to 679,000.
The scholar, Maulana Syed Ali Raza Rizvi, who was born in Pakistan and studied in Iran, said he now “feels more Islamic” in Britain than other countries.
Welcome to “Londonistan”, where 423 new mosques have been built “on the sad ruins of English Christianity,” the Gatestone Institute said in an April 2 report.
Meanwhile, some 500 churches have shut down, converted to housing or, in some cases, mosques. The Hyatt United Church was bought by the Egyptian community to be converted to a mosque. St Peter’s Church has been converted into the Madina Mosque. The Brick Lane Mosque was built on a former Methodist church.
