It’s getting more and more confusing now. Or is it not?
If “people” are saying that religion determines the race then this a development in a way. Let’s do some mathematical analysis.
The given arguments are:
A Malay is not a Malay only if he/she is a Christian. (lose)
An Indian is a Malay if he/she is a Muslim. (add)
So going by the same argument,
If a Chinese or a Caucasian(others) are Muslims, he/she is a Malay. (add)
Well then let’s revise the national population ratio. Overall there should be more Malays now because technically all Muslims are considered as Malays. And there should be a reduction of in the population of Indians and Chinese now that their Muslims brethren are classified as Malays. So hurray! Our Malay population has grown! #makemalaygreatagain
(What about Indians or Chinese who are Christians? Because generally Indians are Hindus and Chinese are Taoists or Buddhists. Jeng jeng jeng….)
