These principles constitute the framework of Islamic thought and methodology. They are the main matter that guides Islamic mentality, psychological build-up and personality in academic and everyday life. In the past, there is so much manipulation of the Islamic image resulted from the confusion between the precepts of logic and the tenets of the Muslim's personality, mentality, and methodology of acquiring knowledge and living his life. This confusion almost lead the Islamic spirit and kept it from realizing its sacred mission of toil, reform, creativity, and construction on earth. The emergence on the Islamic scene of intruding nations with a noted heritage of civilization and learning
Population, check, living in a defined area, check, government, check, defined territory, check. The only debatable thing is “the capacity to enter relations with other states” and that is directly influenced by something called “true recognition”. As of right now, only 22 states fully recognize Taiwan while pretty much the rest of the world have “un-official diplomatic relations.” So let’s ask this. Does having an unofficial diplomatic relationship differ from an official one ? When asked about it, a former Taiwanese Marine simply said that “recognition doesn’t matter in terms of economic relations, but having recognition of a country serves the purpose of building the confidence of people.” Because of the lack of recognition, I’ve also heard the argument that “you can’t just declare yourself a country”.
Islamization in Malaysia Islamization refers to the process by which what are perceived by Islamic laws, values and practices are given greater significance in state, society and culture . (Liow, 2009, pp43) In 1972, Prime Minister Abdul Razak Hussein spoke about the “religious revolution to check declining morals” (Liow, 2009, pp46) which led to the gradual occurrence of Islamization. Islamic scholars and influential muftis on the National Fatwa Council helped this process by justifying Islamization through disseminating their views in the social and cultural arena through education and media (Hoffstaedter, 2013, pp 272). The process of Islamization through various means by various organizations have influenced apostasy in many ways. One of which is the political aspect of Islamization.

With a history that is comprised of colonial dominance, struggles for independence and economic success, combined with the coexistence of different cultures and races on its land, Singapore has always been on a quest to find its identity and culture. Much of what has been achieved today can be attributed to the pragmatism of its leaders. The state chases after the image of a modern, cosmopolitan city yet still conservative in some aspects and still hold on to asserting our local identity. Thus, the result is a culture that presents itself as a tension between stepping up to fit in among the globalized cities yet still wanting to retain a sense of its local roots. All of this happens within the capitalist landscape of the state, which prioritizes economic gains as a means of putting the state in a stable and secure position.
RECLAIM THE SAFFRON If you were born in a Hindu family in the Hindi speaking belt of Northern India, the word “cultured” can often feel like an oxymoron. Few Hindi-Hindus who have gone on to educate themselves very proudly associate themselves with the present culture in the belt. For us, to be cultured is a cheeky kick: our culture, or at least the one we saw around us growing up, is not the one we would have ourselves associate with. Needless to say, there could certainly be those who are able to remain loyal to their roots and to their liberal ideals at the same time; those who rail against the caste system, and offer prayers every Dussehra at their local temple which still is not letting Dalit people use the hand pump on its premises. For the rest of us, who feel a knot in our stomach to reject a culture that can produce such ugly consequences as we have seen growing up, adolescence brings alienation, and adulthood brings rootlessness and a feeling of lack of identity.

Filipino society is very conservative and has a great importance on family values.
