|Malays||Malays, its culture and language, are originated from Indonesia. This belief is also commonly held by many poorly educated Malaysians.||Scholars like Linehan, Barnard and Benjamin, are in agreement that much of the ethos of modern Malay identity, including the language, are originated from the time of Melaka Sultanate, established in the Malay peninsular around the 15th century. There were indeed older Hindu-Buddhist Malayic kingdoms scattered across the coastal areas of Malay peninsular, Sumatra and Borneo, but 'Malay' as an ethnonym and identity was only firmly established after the arrival of Islam.
A popular argument suggests that the Malays originated from Indonesia because there are many descendants of Indonesian ethnicities among modern Malay population in Malaysia. There may be truth of this claim to certain extent, but Indonesian ethnicities constitute only a small portion of the population according to census conducted by British colonial administrators from 1911 to 1957. This was the time when the term Malay was still separated from other Indonesian ethnicities. During this period, only up to 14.5%(1931) of the total 'Malaysian'note population identified themselves belong to any of the Indonesian ethnicities (Javanese, Bugis, Minang, etc), with major concentration only in south and western states of Malay peninsular. On the other hand, the overwhelming majority of 'Malaysian'note belong to either one of the following Malay sub-ethnicities; Kedahan, Pahang, Kelantanese, Terengganuan and Perakian.
Nevertheless, thanks to the institutionalised policy of force Malayisation carried out by the government, which no longer allow self-identification to any of the Indonesian ethnicities in any government documents, many of the descendants of these immigrants are now self-identified as Malays and only informally retain parts of their cultural traits.
