Moors

Moors are not a distinct or self-defined people and mainstream scholars observe "The term 'Moors' has no real ethnological value." Medieval and early modern Europeans variously applied the name to Arabs, Berber North Africans and Muslim Europeans. The term has also been used in Europe in a broader, somewhat derogatory sense to refer to Muslims in general, especially those of Arab or Berber descent, whether living in Spain or North Africa. During the colonial era, the Portuguese introduced the names "Ceylon Moors" and "Indian Moors" in Sri Lanka and the Bengali Muslims were also called Moors.
