Some of the rituals that the Kalangs preserved at least until that time show pre-Islamic features; that is why it is conceivable that they are somehow related to other marginalized groups on Java, like the Baduy in the western part and the Tenggerese in the eastern part of the island, who have equally maintained pre-Islamic rituals and ideas.
