What a stupid comment. First of all not all South Asians are muslims, secondly how can you describe someone who was born in this country an immigrant? That just doesn't make any sense.
you can if they behave as an immigrant would, in many ways, as many do

If you're either english, scottish or welsh I would like to know whether you consider British born Pakistanis/Bangladeshis to be a true part of british society or do you still consider them as either 'inferior' or 'foreign.'
If you're either english, scottish or welsh I would like to create a deliberately inflammatory and polemic topic that anyone can join in on concerning whether your consider British born Pakistanis/Bangladeshis to be a true part of british society or, to fuel the flames and throw this one out there, do you still consider them as either 'inferior' or 'foreign'.
I'm half Asian. But no one ever realises. Even when I tell them they think I'm pulling their leg. Most people at most think I'm Portguese or Italian. Either way, you'd be surprised how many convos you hear with racial slurs in them when you are...
The Undercover Asian!
I think this thread is a bit silly. A lot of Asian and Caribbean people, as well as other parts of the commonwealth, came to the UK after the Second World War to help the country with running the economy as there was a depleted workforce. Just because someone may have a different skin colour doesn't mean that they're not British. The way I would categorise someone as being British is whether they were born in the country or whether they have lived in the country a while, speak English and have successfully integrated into society rather than choosing to isolate themselves from society and encourage segregation. I think the colour of the person's skin is irrelevant, obviously entering the country illegally is bad but if they were born here or have come here legally and contribute to society then I see no reason why they wouldn't be considered as British.
