In reply to:
Freddie came from a persian family which moved from India to Sansibar when he was born.
He was born in Zanzibar because his Indian father worked in the British Colonial Office there. His parents were Parsi-Zoroastrian. The Parsi were descendents of Persians who emigrated to India a millenium ago, Their religion, Zoroastrianism was Persian in origin.
Given that Freddie's parents, grandparents, great grandparents (etc, for a thousand years) would have been born in India, I think it's safe to describe Freddie as Indian.
