asian-dialouges-yala-1-144.jpgWhispers have been rife, on the proposed peace talks between the interim Government of Thailand and former insurgent groups in Southern Thai. More than 1,000 people have been killed in the 4 Muslim-majority provinces but no one has claimed responsibility for any of them.

Are the perpetrators those former insurgent groups as suggested by then Thaksin government and the military, a mysterious new grouping or are they perhaps self-defense units formed by villagers who tire of inhumane treatment and intrusion by the state security forces who have amassed by the tens of thousands in recent years?

Nik Mohamad Nasir, social activist and President of the influential civil society organisation, the Young Muslim Association of Thailand, gives his views on the problems faced by the Muslim community in southern Thailand for decades, its implications and what lies ahead.
