Barisan National Pember-Basan Pattani (BNPP)
The Barisan National Pember-Basan Pattani (BNPP) was founded in 1959. By 1990, the name of the movement was changed to the BIPP [expansion unknown] to conform to the struggle launched by separatist Muslims throughout the world. The organization ceased its activity in Thailand until early 2002. It is believed to have been involved in some attacks during the most recent spate of violence. BNPP members also participated in the recent meeting of the eight Thai Muslim separatist groups held in Northern Malaysia. The BNP is headquartered in northern Malaysia and participates in Malaysian state level politics.
