There are roughly 1 billion Muslims in the world. Another billion each in China and India. A billion in Africa. /Another/ two billion through the rest of Asia /not/ included in China and India. A half billion in South and Central American and the Caribbean.

"Normal" itself is a minority, if you mean US, Canada, UK, EU, AU, NZ.
