Asked in Religion & Spirituality
Which religion is practice in malasyia?
There are many different religions that are practiced in Malaysia. About 60% are Muslim, 19% Buddhist, 9% Christian, 6% Hindu and 2.6% other Chinese religions like Confucianism and Taoism. There is also 1.5% of other religions, and 0.8% follow no religion. These are percentages of people who are identified with certain religions, but the question of if those are the same percentages as those who actually "practice" these religions is debatable. In Malaysia (as in many other places) what religion you are affiliated to is often connected to ethnicity. If you are an ethnically a Malay in Malaysia, by default you have to be Muslim and you cannot convert to another religion. Also, if you marry someone in Malaysia who is Malay you must also convert Islam. So the number of people in Malaysia who practice Islam being 60%, even if that is the number on the government census, may not truly be accurate. A lot of people may only be a certain religion on paper, and may not really practice that religion in real life.
