    Why have you not written British Indian and British Hindu too. The whole Asian name is the British establishment carrying on the degradation of Indians and Hindus – just look at the media.

    English people don’t go around calling themselves Europeans so why should we be labelled as a whole continent including China Russia etc

    Nowadays they call us South Asians – Indian heritage and culture is far more older than others – we should be shown the same dignity and respect other nations receive

    Thank you for your feedback.
    As we understood it, back in the early 2000s Indian (Asian) people in the UK were proud to be called Asian and identified with the title British Asians. Media brands such as Brit Asia TV would suggest this acceptance although clearly the term Asian incorporated all South Asians. Historically the Term Asian in the UK has meant South Asian (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh), not Chinese or Orientals.

    It appears this has changed over recent years with Indians, Hindus and Sikhs, in particular seeing themselves as quite a distinct group to British Asians. The identity seems to be “British Indian”.
