In 1986, the Muslim Education Trust organization (MET) located in the United Kigdom and directed by Ghulam Sarwar, obtained the 1971 census and information given by Embassies of the respective countires in London. The 1971 census showed the Muslim Minorities countries had around 308 Million Muslim.

If we add ( 784.5M + 308M ) = 1092.5 Million Muslims in 1971. As we know, the population of Muslims has been on the rise at a rate of 3%. If we add the percentage increase since 1971 up to now, we should get an approximate total population of 1.780 Billion Muslims around the world.

The Muslim Educational Trust is an educational organization formed in 1966 to cater for the Islamic educational needs of Muslims in the United Kingdom.
