  The Thai government should withdraw all its soldiers immediately from the Muslims and Buddhists will live as they did in the it is a Muslim majority area, it is wise that the Thai government give full attention to the development of Islam; that means more mosques and the emphasise on Arabic three states should have close collaboration with Malaysia who . The book draws specific connections between the direction and intent of the country's foreign policy towards other Muslim countries, concerning global and regional Islamic issues, and the politics of Islam within the domestic scene. This book makes an important contribution to understanding the intense relationship between domestic and foreign. I'm a Buddhist Thai. So, to be honest, I don't have negative thinking on Malayu Thai. I am spending 6 years already in South of Thailand. We are also different but it doesn't mean we can't accept each other. I have a lot of Muslim friends and most. South’s population of around two million yet are a tiny minority—only a little over 2% at the national level. Like most con-flicts, the conflict in the Deep South is not purely one-dimensional. The main axis of contestation—between the Thai state and Malay Muslims—is complicated by other forms of tension and violence. At the local.

The study said the policy had "heightened resentment among the Malay Muslim population towards the Thai state and raised the feeling of injustice and discrimination". The Pattani, a devout Muslim people, are the descendants of Malaysian Muslims. Due to their dedication to the Islamic faith, the Pattani have a distinct identity in Thailand. They live in a place that is like a cultural ecotone between the Muslim Malay cultures to the south and the Buddhist Thai . This work will be a state-of-the-art source for understanding the role of Islam and the ongoing conflict in this troubled region of Southeast Asia. The book is significant for those scholars who are attempting to understand Muslim communities in Southeast Asia, and also for those who want deep insights into Islamic education and its influence. While local Malay Muslim villagers in Thailand’s far south support the movement, the militant movements hardly ever garnered support or sympathy from Thai Muslims at large. A number of media reports over the past several years have alleged that foreign fighters from the Islamic State had attempted to exploit the situation in southern Thailand.

  In marked contrast to the predominantly Buddhist and Thai-speaking centre, the kingdom’s three southernmost provinces (Yala, Pattani and Narathiwat) are all majority Malay and Muslim.

Reuters September 9, YALA, Thailand: Separatist militants shot dead and beheaded a Buddhist state official in Thailand's Muslim south on Tuesday, police said, the latest death in 57 months of insurgency in which more than 3, people have died.   Known across Thailand’s “deep south” as the “Tak Bai massacre”, the Octo incident remains one of the deadliest days in the rebellion by Malay-Muslims against rule by the Thai state, which colonized the provinces bordering Malaysia over a century ago. Muslims in the conflict-blistered Thai south on Friday marked with prayers the 15th anniversary of the deaths of scores of protesters who suffocated in army trucks — an incident that galvanized an insurgency and remains an emblem of state impunity..

The Thai state suffers from a legitimacy deficit in the region, and many Malay-Muslims would like greater control over their own affairs. The insurgency is ultimately fuelled by political. The irredentist activities were engineered by Thai-Muslim politicians in the southern border provinces and supported by those who resented Thai rule.

But the Malay leaders of the region and members of the Central Islamic Committee of Thailand reaffirmed, in the same year, their allegiance to the country. With the rise of Thai nationalism and expansionism during World War II, the Malay-Muslims in the deep South became the target of Bangkok’s Thai-icization policy.

From then on the age-old regional conflict turned into a separatist movement involving all Muslims in that area, not only the elite class as before. The key to settlement of Thailand's upheavals in the south relies on social, economic, and political initiatives that tackle the immediate concerns of the Muslim population.

Policies implemented by Bangkok, a generation ago and since the January violence, amount to Thai. A vast majority of Thai Malays are Muslims of Shafi'i sect, with Islam as the defining element of the Thai Malay identity.

The author sketches the incorporation of the Malay southern Islamic provinces into the Thai state and the early manifestations of Muslim resistance.

Malay Muslims and their leaders’ movements were responses to the government handling of the oppressive conditions and on-going negotiations between both sides; the Thai authorities’ cautiousness towards the Muslim community stemmed essentially from the well-organized and structured collective actions of the latter, and from the nature and.

Thailand’s assimilation policy in the past 80 years on the Muslim Malay in Thailand’s three southern border provinces, known as Patani, has been repeatedly cited as one of the main reasons for the armed struggle, claiming almost lives already. Due to this uncompromising assimilation policy, the state of the Malay language in Patani has become very weak and marginalized.

Known across Thailand’s “deep-south” as the “Tak Bai massacre”, the Octo incident remains one of the deadliest days in the rebellion by Malay-Muslims against rule by the Thai state, which colonised the provinces bordering Malaysia over a century ago. For the purpose of integration, Malay identity was discouraged by the Thai state.

Due to such policy, there is a diminishing Malay proficiency among young Malays. This had led to prejudice against Muslims in general instead of specifically against the Malays. A policy of forced assimilation enraged the ethnically Malay Muslims, who represent the majority in the region.

Many of the region’s Muslims adopted Thai names and the national language.
