Discrimination against Cham ? US Religious Freedom Report.

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

well here in chroy changva thelarge masjid down the road is well attended.
there are 2 big ones.
see the odd mid easterner hanging around, and a few salafist style uniform wearers.
they do have a rep for selling black magic love charms and such.
the Khmer have no animosity to them at all

Out of genuine curiosity, do you any Cham?
I presume you mean "Do you know any Chams?" The answer is yes, I have had Cham friends here for pretty much all the time I've been here. I don't see what the fuss is about, they are just like anyone else to most extents. Nearly all I know have all studied abroad (Australia/ Malaysia ).
I assume they don't pray 5 times a day and likely drink?

Yeah, they're nothing to fuss about, agreed.

Strangely enough, I know quite a few Muslims who drink. Also Jews who eat pork. So what. I'm not going to tell them that they are unbelievers. Lol. :nono:

Cool, as they also don't have much belief in true Islam either. Nothing to fuss about. :thumb:
