Summary of Disinformation

By the year 2050 Germany will become a Muslim country.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about migrants and Islamisation, whose aim is to stoke amplify negative emotions towards immigrants. A similar case can be found here.

According to the Pew Research Centre's study, migration drives the projected increase in the Muslim shares in European countries, including Germany. Share of Muslims in Germany would increase to 10.8% in 2050 under the medium scenario, in which regular migration continues at its current pace and refugee flows stop entirely. Even in the high scenario, if the recent volume of refugee flows continues, the research says, the share of Muslims in the country will rise to 19.7%.
