Malaysia - Religion

Colleges in Malaysia - Diploma in Business, Engineering, IT, Aircraft, Nursing, Hotel Management

All of the world's major religions have substantial representation in Malaysia, the main adherents of each largely reflecting the multi-ethnic character of the population. The variety of religions found in Malaysia is a direct reflection of the diversity of races living there.

Although Islam is the state religion of Malaysia, freedom of religion is guaranteed. The Malays are almost all Muslims. The Chinese embrace an eclectic brew of Taoism, Buddhism and ancestor worship, though some are Christians.

Malaysia's official religion is Islam, but the freedom of religion is guaranteed by the constitution. As in other areas, the cultural diversity plays a part in the religious preference of Malays.

The Chinese population in Malaysia is basically Buddhist or Taoist with a few following Confucianism and Christianity.

Indians in Malaysia are usually Hindus (with a few being Sikh and Christians).

The vast majority of the Malays (particularly ethnic Malays) are Muslims, with Christianity being practiced by some Chinese, Indians, Eurasians and many of the indigenous people of Sabah and Sarawak.
