英国皈依伊斯兰教者数目激增

  Britain has seen more than 100,000 Muslim converts so far, with the number of young white women adopting the Islamic faith surging in ten years, according to the study carried out by multi-faith group Faith Matters。

  The figure has almost doubled since 2001 – with the average convert now a 27-year-old white woman fed up with British consumerism and immorality. In addition, the report estimated around 5,200 men and women have adopted Islam over the past 12 months. Nearly two-thirds were women, more than 70 percent were white。

  The findings have led to claims that Britain is undergoing a process of "Islamification" and concerns that the country will see more violent Islamist extremism. But the report argued that the number of converts sucked into extremism represented a "very small minority" and said most converts saw their religion as "perfectly compatible" with living in Britain。

  And according to the survey conducted by Kevin Brice from Swansea University, these converts identified alcohol and drunkenness, a "lack of morality and sexual permissiveness", and "unrestrained consumerism" as the negative aspects of British culture. Now nine out of ten women converts said their change of religion had led to them dressing more conservatively。

  英国《每日邮报》5日报道称,据英国多元宗教组织“信仰事务”机构的最新研究,英国皈依伊斯兰教的人数已经超过10万人,其中年轻白人女性皈依者数目十年内激增。

  报道称,自2001年来,皈依者数目比之前几乎翻了1倍——其中大多数是27岁、对英国消费主义和道德沦陷感到厌烦的白人女性。此外,研究报告还预测,过去一年来大约有5200位英国人信仰了伊斯兰教。其中三分之二是女性,70%以上是白人。

  这些研究结果导致某些言论和担忧抬头:英国正经历“伊斯兰化”以及英国将面临更多恐怖极端暴力行为。但研究报告声称,陷入极端主义的皈依者属于“极少数”,并称大部分皈依者认为,新信仰同英国本土生活方式“完全兼容”。

  另据一项由英国斯旺西大学研究员凯文•布莱斯发布的调查,皈依者认为英国文化中存在负面:酗酒成性、“道德失则以及性放纵”以及“无节制消费”。如今九成的女性皈依者称信仰的变化导致她们着装更为保守。
