Thai army’s brutalities against Rohingya Muslims

"At the heart of the Rohingya problem is the Burmese junta’s brutal oppression and decades long genocidal policy against them, denying their right to exist as an ethnic group. This dimension of the military rule in Burma has received little attention in the Western media and their local spokesmen that make so much noise about democracy but whose backdoor business deals with the junta are not secret.

Pattani Muslims under attack again in southern Thailand

"The southern region has a heavily Malay-speaking Muslim population in the provinces of Pattani, Yala and Narathiwat, which historically formed the Muslim kingdom of Pattani until it succumbed to Siamese control in the 1700s. People here share similar cultures and habits with the Malay Muslims in Malaysia, but Bangkok has traditionally suppressed their identity, for example by discouraging the use of the Malay language."
