Abstract

Muslim minorities are in Thailand, the Philippines and Myanmar. Muslims in Thailand
are concentrated in four provinces in the south of Thailand, namely Pattani, Narathiwat,
Yala and Satun. In these four provinces, the Muslim population is the majority, but the
minority is compared to the Thai population who are Hindus and Buddhists. The
existence of a Muslim minority lives in political, economic, and social shackles, so that
conflicts are coloring in life. This library research will offer a solution to the problem, so
that the Muslim minority of Southern Thailand can live peacefully and harmoniously with
the government. There are two options for the Thai government to solve problems in
Southern Thailand. The first option gives independence or is used as a state of Thailand.
Both options provide special autonomy, the people are given the authority to manage
their own territory, utilize natural resources for prosperity and prosperity, and implement
the law in accordance with the religion adopted
