Young Asians between Two Cultures

ByMuhammad Anwar

In a pluralistic society ethnic minority groups want to keep their cultural identity such as religious practices, distinguishing patterns of family relationships, and mother tongue, while adapting to other aspects of the dominant culture such as the language, the educational system, employment patterns, and the civic life of the society. They would like acceptance of their separate ethnic identity by the majority population and its institutions. All this applies to Asians in Britain, and the situation of young Asians is examined in this context.
