THE MARTYRDOM OF THE KHMER MUSLIMS
IN THE ZONES TEMPORARILY OCCUPIED
BY THE INDOCHINESE COMMUNISTS
After the general offensive of April 1970 through
out Khmer territory, the Vietnamese communists and
Red Khmers tried to win over to their cause those
Khmer Muslims that had fallen into their hands. They
were wasting their time. Our Khmer Muslims have
never forgotten that the ancestors of the present day
Vietnamese unlawfully occupied their country. CHAM-
PA, which once existed in what is now central Viet-
nam. Hence their wave of systematic terrorism, which
amounts to genocide, pure and simple.
THE DESTRUCTION AND PROFANATION
The mosques present an excellent target for the
Indochinese communists. They have destroyed some
mosques that took a lifetime to build, reducing their
minarets and foundations to ashes. The faithful and
tourists who visit the heights of Kompong-Luong
and Khleang-Sbek in Kandal province, for example,
will find not mosques but piles of burnt brick.
Other mosques have been profaned: Indochinese
communist soldiers frequently use the mosques for
their sexual frolics. They also lead swine into the
mosques to urinate on the floors. This is how they
have defiled the two holy places of BAREN (Kandal
Province) and SRE VEAL (Kompong-Cham Province).

Indochinese communists has been separated far from

THE DESTINY OF THE CHAMS
AND ISLAM IN INDOCHINA
CHAMPA was annexed by the conquering Viet-
namese. The Cham's that remained became Muslims
in a massive, historic conversion. The present-day
Chams are in physical danger of extinction. The Viet-
cong policy is to exterminate as many of them as
possible and to "Vietnamise" the few who remain.
The Vietcong's plan has three stages: genocide,
de-lslamisation and intensive conversion to com-
This program was put into effect as early as
Geneva 1954. It began when the Central Committee
of the Indochinese Communist Party (CCICP). using
their families as hostages, incorporated two or three
Muslim personalities. It was thus that Tuan Hadji
MOHAMMED SALES and Mr. OSMAN found them-
selves, against their wishes, as members of the Central
One of them, by means of a hunger strike and
political trickery, managed to get permission to make
a pilgrimage to Mecca. This was Tuan Hadji MOHAM-
MED SALES/ who thus achieved true peace in the
City of the Prophet (in Saudi Arabia).
Alas! His whole family, however, found itself in
the clutches of the political commisars. THE PRAC-
TICE OF SILENCE IN THEIR MIDST IS AN ABSOLUTE
The other, Mr. OSMAN, refused dfespite the peril
of death to learn even the rudiments of Marxism.
The Indochinese communists could do nothing with
him, even though he was only thirty years old, an
age at which most people can still adapt to new
ideologies. All their efforts having failed, the Indo-
Chinese communists finally placed him in the Cam-
bodian maquis in 1970. His was an odyssey of the
conscience, and Mr. OSMAN is still a strong, potent
man to this day, despite his seventy years.

to eliminate the Islamic faith..
An editorial in the SAIGON POST of May 19.
1 974, speaks of the Indochinese Gommunists' activi-
ties against the Muslims in the Khmer Republic,
Here is the text of that editorial.
THE SAIGON POST
May 19. 1974
"THE SUPPRESSION OF THE CHAMS BY THE
"The insurgents have transferred several batta-
lions based in the 'liberated zones' to the country-
side around Phnom- Penh and the Kompong-Cham
area so they could launch their present military
offensive. This movement of communist troops enabled
some deserters, who were fed up with their com-
munist mentors, to get back to the regions under
government control ...
"Among them were some Chams who, along
with the * Buddhists, have suffered much repression
from the insurgents. The Ghams. a Muslim minority,
are found In great numbers in Kompong-Cham pro-
vince; along the Khmero-Vietnamese frontier. During
the 10th century, the Chams adopted the Islamic
faith, which is the religion of the Arab merchants.
At its height in the 1£th century, the Kingdom
of Champa extended throughout almost all of South-
east Asia. A series of wars with the Vietnamese,
who were numerically superior, resulted in the fall
of the Kingdom of Champa.
"Endowed with an innate courage, the Chams
have achieved an important place in the military
training of the insurgents. In the 1 rst days of the
Khmer rebellion, the most influential Cham personages
were warmly received within the administration and
the military structure of the insurgents, who promised
them favors in exchange for their support of their
.".When the insurgents undertook a campaign to
'discredit' Buddhism, the Chams were left alone
on the sidelines and were not especially singled out
for similar action. The Khmer communists did not
accord any importance to the protestations of religious
teaders against their destruction of historical and
"Nevertheless/ in the beginning of this year and
the end of 1973, the Khmer insurgents began a
concerted effort to efface the Muslim religion in the
regions under their control.
"An important Cham personage has revealed
that a communist cadre has advised the Chams to
abandon their religion because the communists hold
the Arabs in contempt. The Arabs, according to the
communists, were defeated in their recent war with
Israel because they spent all their time praying.
"Accoding to this same Cham, the campaign
of suppression of the Cham and Muslim religion is
being intensified by the unreasonable communist
uricbr their Prime Minister Khieu Samphan who com-
pletely controls the movement of the Khmer rebellion.
"The Chams in Cambodia, for the most part.
are identified with non-communists sympathetic with
Prince Sihanouk, whose influence is declining within
the country (with FUNK), as well as abroad (with
GRUNK, the political arm of FUNK). Last year, Si-
hanouk confided to a foreign journalist: 'Since I won't
be of any further use to the Khmer communists,
they want to spit me out like a pip.' After Khieu
Samphan was received in Hanoi and Peking as a
chief of state earlier this year, Sihanouk had to admit
sadly the growing prestige of Khieu Samphan as
leader of the Khmer rebellion.
"This confession of Sihanouk has dissuaded his
friends in the Arab world from continuing to support
the candidacy of his government for the U.N.
" We await with impatience the reactions of the
Arab delegations to the United Nations to the in-
surgents' ruthless program of suppression of the
Chams and the Islamic religion. Some Cambodian
Chams have left their country for South Vietnam,
where they have rejoined their 240.000 compatriots.
" Given that the Chams in Cambodia revolt openly
against the insurgents and their VC/NVN allies, it
would be unreasonable for the Arab countries to
continue to ignore the persecution which the Chams
and the Islamic religion suffers
THE ORIGIN OF THE MUSLIMS
IN THE KHMER REPUBLIC
The Khmer Muslims are descendants of a great
empire. Champa, which had flourished along the
eastern part of Indochina since the 1st century A.D.
It was annexed — arbitrarily — by France to French
Cochin-China in 1883.
THE TWO LAST PROVINCES OF
CEDED BY FRANCE TO FRENCH COCHIN-
CHINA IN 1883
"The arid littoral and mysterious forests of un-
fathomed depths of this vast province contribute
to the general wealth of the region in the form of
rice from fertile oases, fish, salt, brine, limestone,
ivory, animal horns and hides, and timber.
" This province, I say, is too well delimited from
French Cochin-China to dream of a pure and simple
annexation. No one suggests it for the simple process
of pushing back its boundaries would only increase
the problems of this colony, which today already
is well organized geographically
"But, inasmuch as annexation is undesirable,
it is equally necessary to bring Binh Tuan under
surveillance and direct protectorate, as one can say
of the French colony.
"These two provinces which formed TCHAMPA
in the' last centuries have been almost isoiated by
their neighbors to the north and south...
FROM THE YEARS 1,000 TO 1,036 A. D.
"Ceded in 1883 to French Cochin-China,
one does not know exactly why the vast province
was retroceded without a deep inquiry as to its
normal and natural conditions. Our hesitations victi-
mized only the TCHAMS...."
— Etienne AYMONIER,
" Excursion and Reconnaissance/"
Qui Nhon, June, 1883
The CHAMS issue from the Khmer- M on- Malayo-
Polynesian ethnic grouping. They had their own state
since the earliest antiquity, replete with kings, go-
vernments, a religion, and spoken and written lan-
guage. The monuments of Mi Son and Panduranga
(in present-day Central Vietnam) attest to the high
development of Cham civilization. Subsequent com-
mercial and diplomatic relations bound them to neigh-
boring countries such as Ch-enla, Founan, Kambuja,
Indonesia, Malaya, India and China...
Like the whole of the Khmer-Mon-malayo-Poly-
nesian group, CHAMPA was "Indianized" in the first
centuries of the Christian era and practised the
Buddhist or Brahmin religions until the 10th century.
Then, owing to the commercial Arab influence of
BAHSRA, of SIRAF and of OMAN, and to the arrival
of the Arab colony (among its members were the
RAHDAR AHMED ABU KAMIL, the NAQIB AMR
and the BAY TURC ALI, etc.), CHAMPA converted
to Islam between the years 1,000 and 1,036 A.D.
(Cf. G. Maspero, Aymonier).
From CHAMPA, Islam spread to Malaya, Indo-
nesia, the Philippines, Thailand and Cambodia.
Since the 16th century, which saw the fall of
VIJAYA, the Annamite invaders undertook, even unto
the present day, the systematic genocide of the sur-
vivors. One part resisted and was reduced to an ethnic
minority. Another part took refuge in Cambodia, and
the last established itself in Thailand and Malaysia.
Cf. Maspero, Stein, Moura.)
Received as brothers by the Khmers, the CHAMS
or Khmer Muslims preserve their costumes and fslamic
religion to this very day.
They represent more than 1 percent of the Khmer
population of the capital of Phnom-Penh and the
provinces of KandaL Kampot, Kompong-Cham, Pursat
Battambang and Kompong-Chhnang. Other small
Cham villages are found throughout the rest of the

RESTORATION OF RELIGIOUS FREEDOM
Having noted that the former regime of Cam-
bodia denied to the Cambodian people the freedom
to exercise religious practices, rites and ceremonies
of all worshippers, particularly Islam, and made dis-
criminatory practices and took measures against the
Having noted that the previous regime, in order to
realize its objectives of eradicating the practice of all
religions, had collaborated with the anti-religious
invading groups, namely the Vietcong/North Viet-
namese and Pathet Lao, and having noted that with
the collaboration and connivence of the former regime
with the Vietcong- North Vietnamese and Pathet Lao
the Cambodian Muslims and their mosques were not
protected but allowed and exposed to be destroyed
and oppressed by the enemies of Islam.
Having recognized that since the overthrow of
the former regime and the resumption of power by the
present Cambodian Government after 18 March 1970,
the freedom of worship and religious practices of
Cambodian people were restored and made good by
the present Government,
Therefore resolved that the AAIO First Congress:
1 . Expresses appreciation and gratitude to the present
government of the Republic of Cambodia for the
restoration of religious freedom and practices to the
Cambodian people and Muslims in Cambodia;
2. Expresses AAIO full support and appeals to all
Muslims throughout the world, individually as well as
communities, nations or governments, to give their
wholehearted support and cooperation to the present
government of the Republic of Cambodia for their
