One of the most attractive things about this country is its civilization and people. Being multi-lingual, multi-ethnic and multi-cultural society of about half the acute degree million is no easy feat. The Malaysia population is divided into different communities. One of the largest community is The Malays and are defined as the Muslims of Malaysia. They dominate the political scene. Their native language is Malay which is the national language of the country. They are also called as ‘bumiputra’ and are favored with certain policies related to affirmative actions. Then, the second biggest section includes ‘Chinese’. They are Christians, Buddhists or Taoists. The community speaks various Chinese patios including Teochew, Cantonese, Mandarin, Hakka and Hokkien. But today, many of them speak only English. So the Chinese dominate the business scene and Malays dominate the political scene. The third biggest are the Indians, mainly from the south whose native language is Tamil. Other Indians speak Telugu, Hindi and Malayalam or even English who belongs to upper middle class. So this is worth understanding of religion, native language and different communities.
