A Buddha statue of Khao Kong Temple sits in Narathiwat in South Thailand; despite the fact the majority in the south is Muslims. Many southern Muslims feel themselves in limbo and a certain number of the people look for the independence or joining together with Malaysia, due to the strong Buddhism identity of Thailand. Unfortunately the bloody separate insurgency continues. April 09 2008, Narathiwat, Thailand.
