    The concept of nationalism is said to have existed in the 12th century, however, this ideology only
    emerged as an influential political ideology in the 19th century when some colonies began to demand
    independence from the colonialists. Scholars of western political thought consider the year 1648 to be
    the turning point for the presence of nationalism as a political ideology. This was evidenced in that year
    by an agreement that brought an end to the 30 -year war in Europe which had implications for the birth
    of the nation -state concept. The treaty was the Treaty of Westphalia, in which the treaty did not affect
    the rights of a nation-state, and national sovereignty (Baradat; 1984). This survey study was conducted to
    examine the journey of nationalists in Malaysia as well as the conflicts that occurred in the formation of
    Bangsa Malaysia through several previous studies. The results of this study can be used as a reference to
    determine the best concept to discuss the aspects of nationalism in Malaysia.
