Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha on Tuesday (September 17) defended the Police Special Branch Bureau’s decision to gather the personal information of Muslim university students, saying it was not discriminatory, but just plain compilation of data.

 

He said that Thailand has never had “Big Data” and that this action was not meant to violate anybody’s privacy, adding: “One should never worry about his or her personal information being collected if they do not intend to do anything illegal.”

 

The Muslim Students Federation of Thailand recently issued a statement questioning the bureau’s formal request to all universities asking them to submit personal information about their Muslim students.

 

Prayut quoted the bureau as saying that information about Muslim students was necessary to create a unique database that will be useful in police intelligence service.

Discrimanation based on religion? This is Thailand, im discriminated for being white and having no religion!

Have to say im all for stopping terrorism but of late my stupid neighbours have been able to make up lies and have a police with a warrant search my home and so on so now there is a pretty descent false file on my family at the local police station. I dont think any thai should be cataloguing anything because they clearly have no idea what they are doing!
