Insurgency in the South is much linked to religion

Contrary to your editorial, the Muslim insurgency in the South is very much about religion.

That Muslims in other provinces do not openly support the violence does not indicate that it is not a religious insurgency.

They do not have a majority like those in the three southernmost provinces. If they did, there would certainly be trouble and violence in those provinces as seen in the Philippines and several other countries.
