    Gambia, Islam in

    Gambia became a Muslim state largely because of the efforts of nineteenth-century Muslim proselytizers and because of the state of peace brought about by British colonization. A republic governed by multiparty democratic rule, Gambia achieved its independence from Great Britain in 1965 . The Muslim sense of tolerance in Gambia is largely the work of the present leadership, which has decided to build on the colonial legacy of religious pluralism. In 2000 , 90 percent of Gambia's 1.4 million people were Muslim; 9 percent were Christian. The constitution was repromulgated in 1997 ; a unicameral parliament serves in a democratic, multiparty system.
