The Office of the Chularatchamontri has chided a group of anti-government protesters for inappropriate behaviour inside a mosque in Palian district of Trang province. 

"A mosque is a place of worship for Muslims and is very sacred to them. It is a pillar of peace for the community and should be above all political conflict," the office of the country’s Muslim spiritual leader said in a statement on Friday.

About 300 demonstrators from the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) in the southern province threatened the Islamic Ismailiyah Foundation School to close on Monday in an attempt to get people to join their protest, it said.
