Relate your Event to a Historical Event (compare and contrast with current event).
_Islam is the world's fastest growing religion - and not just in Muslim majority
nations: 10% of all Europeans are projected to be members of the Muslim faith by 2050,
according to a recent Pew Research Center study.The study estimates that from 2010 to
2050, Muslims will have increased across the world by 73%, followed by Christians who
are projected to grow by 35% during the same time period, and Hindus at 34% comparing
they both have to do with religion of Islam. The contrast is that 29 year old activist
change his religion from islam to judaism and supposedly the study estimates that from
2010 to 2050, Muslims will have increased across the world with their religion but maybe
that can change if one person ended up changing how many more can too.
