Ethnicity

1.What is ethnicity? the fact or state of belonging to a social group that has a common national or cultural tradition.

2. Firstly, I am a malay.By that definition of I'm a Malay is I speak the Malay language,I assimilates the Malay culture and I'm a Muslim and that's what makes me a Malay according to constitution.


3.On my Indian roots?Of course,in the past they were many people came here and intermarriage with the indigenous people and assimilates the indigenous culture and finally becomes a part of it.

4.If you look at my siblings all of them are intermarriage,they get married with the indigenous tribe such as my brother get married with the indigenous Perak Malays,My sister get married with the indigenous tribes called Javanese or Jawa and the same goes to my youngest brother which also get married with the Jawa tribe.

5.So,when they get intermarriage, we no longer use our culture,I mean the Malayalam culture no longer being practiced at home,no usage of Malayalam language at home and etc.So we're fully assimilating the Malays or the indigenous culture.
