This Is the biggest load of falsehoods to ever reach my ears, The Malay civilization was originally a civilization based on the Hindu faith, Unfortunately many Malays choose to forget that they were all descended from Hindu's somewhere in their ancestry and further state that the Indians are the ones who took on "Malay" traditions for themselves.
There is no such thing as a pure Malay... and i would even go as far a saying that there is no such thing as a "Malay civilization" because the only true "Malay civilizations" are those community's of aboriginal people who were chased from their homes by individuals wishing to expand their influence on the land that was so rich with resources.
So what is a Malay?
I wish to understand and not be told the Constitutional definition of a Malay because if you used that definition a group of chinese migrants who came to Malaya in the 1800's and started family's which then converted to Islam and mastered the Malay language can also be called Malay.
