(Rhodes 2009). To claim legal protection, an ethnic group in UK should have an extensive communal history and should have its own cultural customs. Other factors that will be taken into account for establishing an ethnic group are the geographical origin, shared language or religion. In UK, Jews and Sikhs have demonstrated that they are an ethnic group while Muslims and Rastafarians have not. Hence, they can claim discrimination in employment on the basis of religious discrimination and not under racial discrimination. For instance, an obligation that all employees should wear a helmet while driving a motorbike could be considered as a disadvantage for a Sikh employee as he wears a turban as per his religious rule and due to that fact, he may not be able to wear a helmet. Such obligation by an employer would be considered as illegal unless it could be demonstrated by the employer that it is essential for the efficient performance by the employee in the job (Slater & Gordon 2014).

For instance, Indians are the largest minority ethnic group trailed by Pakistanis, black Caribbeans and others.

Bangladeshi and Pakistani clusters are predominantly comprised of Muslim. Thus, Muslims can be said to be the largest ethnic minority group in UK.

They are also known as black British, black African or simply black (Thompson Solicitors 2014).
