The presence of Islam in the Cocos islands is due to the population who were brought to Cocos and Christmas islands as labourers, of Malay and Indonesian origin. In the 2016 census, 75% of the population were Islamic. The population on the two inhabited islands generally is split between the ethnic Europeans on West Island (est. pop. 120) and the ethnic Malays on Home Island (est. pop. 500). The islands main Muslim organisation is the Islamic Council of Cocos Keeling Islands. The Islands have three mosques, the most recent of which is the West Island Mosque.
