    I think less of that than I do about you. I recommend you get out more. Meet people, strike up conversations. Learn about them and enjoy living…
    You seem to be very confused about people & more generally speaking about the world.
    Just to be clear,
    1. She is not Japanese
    2. She is Canadian
    3. She wasn't always Muslim
    4. She can stop being one at any time
    5. This "reversion" happened last year…
    Your steps in logic are quite flawed… perhaps just being sensational?!
    Here is the answer to your question.

    A crazy young lady has ZERO influence on a county in any case let alone one like this.
    I assume that because you are Muslim this interests you but rest assured there will most likely never be a state religion again in Japan and heaven forbid the Japanese convert to Islam!?

    I assume majority of Japanese are atheist or Buddhist. Why is there never a state religion?

    Why do you assume things? There's a great wealth of information at your fingertips. Of citizens who claimed a faith, 51 percent were Shinto, 44 percent were Buddhist and 1 percent was Christian. Those are people who claimed a faith though, there a much greater amount of "casual" Shinto followers, people who still visit shrines and participate in some religious ceremonies or hold Shinto beliefs who don't claim a religion since Shinto traditions are so deeply ingrained in much of Japanese culture. "as many as 80% of the Japanese population acknowledge belief in Shinto tenets."

    There was a state religion, and it was Shinto, except it was a perversion of it run by the government and I'm sure you know from your history books how that turned out. If you need a refresher though: https://www.tofugu.com/japan/state-shinto/

    Because a state religion is authoritarian in nature?
