After Merdeka — 31 Aug 1957 — the only Malays by law are the descendants of those listed as Malay by 31 Aug 1957 in Singapore and Malaya. Non-Malays who convert to Islam after Merdeka remain non-Malay.

The Definition is a form of identity. In Malaya, Malays who leave Islam cease to be Malay.
Malaysia is not tanah Melayu. Tanah Melayu is misnomer for gov’t reserves the British colonialists created by gazette on Orang Asli land in Malaya. Such land is untitled and can be degazetted and returned to the Orang Asli or used for public purposes.
The gov’t reserves were used to resettle squatter colonies of various Muslim immigrants, communicating in Malay with each other, to be away from land the British needed to plant rubber and mine tin.
