What planet were you born on?
Indonesia was owned by the Netherlands until recently. Several of my
Dutch friends were born in what is now Indonesia.

It can't be European, that would be just too unlikely, and India seems to be just as unlikely, also, because Sengupta's study of India found 0 R1b1* or R1b1b1 out of 900 samples.
