Just like the Philippines who have problems of its own in the southern part of the archipelago, Thailand is of no excuse. The war between the Buddhist and the Islamist guerrillas has been going on for years, and has since took thousands of lives.
Despite the military presence in the dangerous provinces in the south, several people suffered a deadly fate from the Islamist assassins. They had killed people of different occupation from different walks of life who oppose their demands for autonomy or independence. What shocked me the most was the fact that even religious leaders like monks and imams were of no exception.
And to say that teachers are safe there is an understatement. On September 6, a teacher was shot dead on the head and set his body on fire after helping students in an academic contest. Seriously, i don’t want to teach there.
