Community identity means to which community one belongs to, it is based on birth and belonging and has nothing to do with acquired qualifications and accomplishments.

It is based on what we are than what we have become.


Such identities are called “ascriptive”, which means they are acquired by birth and can’t be chosen.


Community identity provides sense of security and satisfaction to people despite of the fact that it is accidental and not chosen or planned.
