Ok twins, who knows what an ethnic group and a religious group are?
I know what an ethnic group is. An ethnic group is a group of people who share a common culture. An example of an ethnic are the Arabs.
A religious group believe in same god(s) and have common sacred texts with a specific set of rules of how to live. An example is Christianity.
Arabs live in Southwest Asia and in northern Africa. We speak Arabic. Some of us, like me, aren't Muslims because some are Sunni and some are Shi'a. We all believe that we are descendants of Abraham through his son Ishmael.
Persians live in Iran and speak Farsi. Our religion is Shia' Islam which means that we believe we have to be related to Muhammad to be the leader. Indo is Europeans who migrated from Central Europe and Southern Russia.
