The Singaporean/Malaysian government leaders and people are pleased and proud when any of its citizens proclaim:
“I am a Singaporean/Malaysian Indian,
I am a Singaporean/Malaysian Malay,
I am a Singaporean/Malaysian Chinese…”
Indian Government leaders and Hindus like if any of their Muslim Citizens claimed that they are Indian Muslims that could mean they are not Pakistan Muslims or Bangladesh Muslims.
But it is not funny but racist Myanmar country, Myanmar Government leaders and Bama (race) people could not accept their Muslim citizens when we claimed that we are Myanmar Muslims. They openly rejected that Myanmars are all Buddhists (sic) when they ignored the minority ethnic races and minority religious groups. (Note they rejected the Bama Muslim name also).
They all used to label the Muslim citizens as “ALIEN RACES” and “ALIEN RELIGIOUS GROUPS.”
