    i dont care about ethnicity lols my religion is my culture. a lot of asian cultures conflict with religion anyway plus nationalism paves way for racism against other nationalities.

    Nopity freaking nope. That's what the British thought when they partitioned Bharat into India for the Hindus and Pakistan and Bangladesh (East PK then) for Muslims. Know how that ended? Mass genocide.

    So um, nope, culture holds a bigger sentiment to a lot of people.

    Nationality/ethnicity. I have more in common. Plus, there seems to be a lot of racial conflict within religions from what I've seen.

    If I choose religion or nationality, It's who you want to be with for me.

    Depends where... in East Asia, Nationality definitely seems more important than Religion

    Asia is a large place man...

    Approximately half the world is Asian. Tha means there is a 50% chance of getting an asian if you picked 2 random people from the Earth's population. I'd say religion is more important in Western and Southern Asia, but culture is definitely more important in East Asia.

    I think theres conflict in both really
    I'm iranian & pakistani and for me its more the fact that these countries are so oppressive to women and the only thing women do there is get married lol (obv its starting to change). So why would I be close with something or someone that views be as property?
    I also hate the culture tbh however i am proud of where my parents grew up and the problems they faced

    i'm more close to religion so i see my religion as my culture
