Abstract :

Muslim constitute almost a half of Southeast Asian population, yet studies on the subject done by political scientist are still few. Students of political science tend to perceive Islam as merely a thin veneer of the more real it has played little role in the political dynamics of the region. Closer analyses show that Islam does play-at least three-significant roles in the conflicts. First, it gives those Muslim communities historical identities, that they were politically independent communities fell under colonial occupations and the trapped as parts of secular nation-states. Secondly, Islam supplies concepts and terms that are very effective to mobilize mass support, i.e. that the insurgencies are not only political and economic conflicts against unjust and oppressive governments but rather a holy war-Jihad-against the enemies of God. Finally, Islam provides international networks that enabled the insurgences internationalized their causes. Given the fact that Islam contributes several factors to the insurgencies among Muslims in Southeast Asia, every effort to solve the conflicts must take Islam into consideration.
