[#2] How to prove that #SaveMaryam’s 2 Millions conversion rate is FAKE!

This is the appendix of my note titled, #SaveMaryam – A KONY 2012 type campaign, misleading and very insulting to Indonesian Muslims.

APPENDIX

Indonesian Population by Religion

 (according to 2000 and 2010 National Census) 

1. Indonesian Population in 2000 (1,2,3)

Islam           = 177,528,772 (88.22%)

Protestant  = 11,820,075 (5.87%)

Catholic      = 6,134,902 (3.05%)

Hindu          = 3,651,939 (1.81%)

Buddha       = 1,694,682 (0.84%)

Others        = 411,629 (0.20%)

Total           = 201,241,999 (100%)

2. Indonesian Population in 2010 (2,4)

Islam               = 207,176,162 (87.18%)

Protestant      = 16,528,513 (6.96%)

Catholic          = 6,907,873 (2.91%)

Hindu              = 4,012,116 (1.69%)

Buddha           = 1,703,254 (0.72%)

Konghucu       = 117,091 (0.05%)

Others            = 299,617 (0.13%)

Not Answered = 139,582 (0.06%)

Not Asked       = 757,118 (0.32%)

Total                = 237,641,326 (100%)

3. Average Annual Increase (2000 – 2010)

Total          = (237,641,326 – 201,241,999) / 10 = 3,639,933

Muslim       = (207,176,162 – 177,528,772) / 10 =  2,964,739

Protestant = (16,528,513 – 11,820,075) / 10 =  470,844

Catholic      = (6,907,873 – 6,134,902) / 10 =  77,297

Christian (Catholic + Protestan) = (23,436,386 – 17,954,977) / 10 =  548,141

From 2000 to 2010 total Indonesian population had increased by 3,639,933 per year.

– Muslim population had increased by 2,964,739 per year.

– Christian population had increased by 548,141 per year.

If total Christian population only increased by 548,141 per year how could 2,000,000 Muslims converted to Christian per year???

And of that 548,141, the biggest percentage is certainly due to natural growth (birthrate). So, the annual increase due to conversion from other religion is even smaller.

So, SaveMaryam’s claim that 2 Millions Indonesian Muslims are converted to Christianity every year is simply A LIE!

If you dare to exaggerate the exact facts, how could we believe that you don’t exaggerate the other facts?

============================================

ATTENTION:

On 25 July 2012 #SaveMaryam published a press release clarifying how they get 2 millions figure. As a response to their press release on 28 July 2012, I published a note, “Understanding #SaveMaryam’s Press Release – Incompetent or Dishonest? (or both)”.

    Setuju Kang Maul dengan tulisannya… Hebat..hebat..hebat. Sy jadi berintrospeksi diri nih, sebagai seorang muslimah belum ada yang bisa lakukan untuk Islam… Orang orang murtad yang keluar dari Islam dan masuk kristen adalah orang bodoh yang tidak mau berfikir sedangkan orang yang masuk Islam adalah orang cerdas pencari kebenaran.
