Since a very long time Cham people settled in Cambodia and formed the muslim society.
During the cruel Khmer Rouge era all muslims who did not manage to escape were killed.
Today, Muslims are able to practice their religion normally and out in the open. This commenced in the People Republic of Kampuchea era where Islam was given the same freedom as that of Buddhism, the official religion practiced by the majority of Cambodians. The Chams also enjoy democratic rights like all Khmer citizens, with the right to vote and be elected as politicians.
