In Between; The Restive South (Photo Journalism May -April 2010)

September 16, 2012 Leave a comment


When the so-called ‘conflict situations’ in many countries around the world were reached the boundary of ‘war’ and people fed up with the loss and grievance, the peace-building process would become clearly with the goals to achieve. Unlike the restive situations in the Deep South of Thailand, which is still ‘in between’ whether to defy them just the ‘battle’ or complete ‘warfare’? For this reason, the peace-building process in the Deep South call on more powerful creativity and contribution from everyone involved, in the hope to change the hotbed of violence into one peaceful place where people can live in co-existence. Thus, the obligations of Deep South photographers in recording and reflecting various states of people and community would be related to the important question in mind; ‘How shall we live together?’ Furthermore, the empowerment of the Deep South media, especially Photographers Networks can be one factor in peace-building processes, as the collection of the Deep South related images can be used in finding a comprehensive imagination to the ‘future Deep South’ which all people are hoping and longing for.”

Conflict in Southern Thailand Islamism, Violence and the State in the Patani Insurgency

November 13, 2011 Leave a comment

This paper is one of the products of a larger SIPRI research project, Conflict, Islam and the State-Nation: New Political and Security Challenges, kindly supported by the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In it, Dr Neil Melvin seeks to unravel these different strands of the Patani conflict and to shed light on its dynamics. He warns that the insurgents are now gaining the upper hand and it will be hard to stop the conflict escalating still further. The case is strengthening, therefore, for the international community to intervene, over and above the expressions of concern that have already come from Thailand’s neighbours. I am grateful to Dr Melvin for this original and illuminating study, and to Caspar Trimmer for the editing.

Tearing Apart the Land: Islam and Legitimacy in Southern Thailand

Based on a year’s fieldwork, interrogation records, and anonymous leaflets, among other sources, this book argues that Thailand’s overcentralized state failed to give meaningful participation to ethnically Malay Muslim citizens.McCargo’s close study of the origins of militancy in three southern Thai provinces carries clues to the problem of state-minority relations all over Asia. Based on a year’s fieldwork, interrogation records, and anonymous leaflets, among other sources, McCargo’s book argues that Thailand’s overcentralized state failed to give meaningful participation to ethnically Malay Muslim citizens. The resulting popular alienation led to the violence that has been going on in Thailand since 2001. Former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra’s regime, although popularly elected, was especially inept in relations with local minorities. The chapter on police and army action is a case study on how to make local insurgencies worse instead of better. In McCargo’s account, Islamic identity provided a frame — but not the motive — for the militant movement. But if autonomy short of independence is the demand of many groups in Asia, it remains unclear to McCargo, and perhaps to the southern Thai militants themselves, how much local participation is enough to stem this kind of violence once it starts.

Operation Nasi Kerabu – Finding Patani In An Islamic Insurgency

October 5, 2011 Leave a comment

Author: Zan Azlee

Publisher: ZI Publications

Ratings: 7/10


FOR Zan Azlee, life in war-torn Patani wasn’t at all the way he expected it to be.  The citizens are Muslims, they are Bahasa-speaking, baju melayu-wearing Malays, like many from his home country Malaysia.

With the aim of documenting the real Patani, Zan sets off to seek the difference between the kedai kopihumvees and gunfights from the nasi kerabu.

With the help of fellow journalist and fixer Daniya, he goes on a journey that asks the question ‘how do people live in a warzone’?

Starting off on a more cautious note, writer, broadcaster and journalist Zan becomes more curious and braver as he progresses with his documentary. From his many encounters with people in Patani, he learns different sides of living in warzone.

An interesting and easy read, the book also includes a DVD of the documentary which was banned by the prime minister’s office.

This is a good book for those interested in realities of war and the brave people going through their lives every day in a war-torn zone.

Operation Nasi Kerabu: Finding Patani In An Islamic Insurgency, published by ZI Publications, is available at all major bookstores and comes with a DVD of the documentary, The Life And Times Of An Islamic Insurgency. You can follow the further adventures of Zan Azlee at

Patani: Behind The Accidental Border by Kijang Mas Perkasa

September 18, 2011 Leave a comment

This book presents a comprehensive and definitive analysis of the ongoing socio-political conflict in Patani, a Malay nation that has been under direct Thai rule since her momentous annexation by Siam in 1902. The historical context and socio-political evolution of the Patani struggle for liberation are explored in dramatic detail, with facts derived from contextual analysis of previously un-deciphered archival materials and accounts 
of the conflict’s key players. A comprehensive framework of a sustainable political solution to the “Pattani Issue” is also synthesized with unprecedented granularity.

This must-read book expounds the political intrigue and complexities of Siamese Shadow Play politics that have kept the Malay nation of Patani Darussalam under the Thai yoke for the past century. Since its launch in mid-2008, this book has become the definitive resource and intellectual authority on the Patani Conflict.

 The book is available online sale:
