1.8% of people in China are Muslim and yet they account for over 23 million people. It's insane how many people there are in China.

Atleast the population growth in these to countries has redused. I don't think any of thoes two will pass 1.5 Billion. It is very insteresting to learn and talk about population and religion. Watch Hans Rosling on Ted Talk (you can find videos on YouTube)

China is probably being reduced because they have laws saying you can't have more than two kids per married couple. As well as they kill the 2nd born girl once they're born.

Got 100% on my first try! With Uzbekistan being the least guessed country, I'm guessing people started typing a few of the -stans (not Afghanistan or Pakistan) and then decided that none of the others had it. On another note: There would be much different results if this quiz was the highest percentage of Muslims.

"the day Islam showed its true colours". You do know that this is extremism and not the actual religion in play. Islam is actually a very peaceful religion, like most other religions, if you adhere to all its principles.

Southeast Asia, next to Indonesia. The Wikipedia article Islam in Malaysia with numbers from 2013, tells us are there approximately 19.5 million Muslin adherents. Malaysia probably should be added to this quiz unless their number of muslims has somehow steeply declined in 5 years.
