Abstract

This article analyzes the Muslim Pangal community of Manipur
in northeastern India. Although its members have been fairly
integrated with other groups, their liberal cultural sense, infused
with a deep religious grounding, has allowed them to borrow various
cultural traits, including language. Apart from Islam, their
cultural whole is based on, among other elements, language,
dressing patterns, social arrangements, folk songs, and courtship
rituals.
