Muslims are expected to become America’s second largest religious group by the year 2040, a new estimates has suggested.

The Pew Research Center said there are currently 3.45 million Muslims in the US, which is approximately 1.1 per cent of the US population.

But the think tank said that in the next 22 years, Muslims will replace Jews as the nation’s second-largest religious group. By 2050 the total number of Muslims is projected to reach 8.1 million.

Ihsan Bagby, an associate professor of Islamic Studies at the University of Kentucky and member of the advisory board for Pews’ 2017 survey, said that the US would have to come to terms with the fact that Islam is becoming an important part of the nation’s makeup".
