British Asians is an ethnic group which includes people who have British nationality but are originally from South Asia. This includes the countries Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal and the Maldives.

The 2001 UK Census[1] says there are 2.33 million British Asians. They make up 4% of the population of the United Kingdom.

British Asian does not include people from eastern Asia. People from eastern Asia are called by their own ethnic origins. An example is British Chinese.
