Malaysia has a population of 25 million. The country is multi-ethnic and multi-cultural, and has a rather unique constitution that declares Islam the state religion, whilst permitting other religion groups to abide by their own religion. For example – a muslim drinking alcohol with a Christian might be prosecuted, whilst the Christian would not. The majority ethnic group are the Malays (50.4%). 61.3% of the population are muslim, 19.8% Buddhist, 9.2% Christian, 6.3% Hindu and 1.3% traditional Chinese.
