If it's been there that long, let it be. That being said, I have regularly noticed tensions between Muslims and Buddhists. I've seen Buddhists villages that were attacked by Muslims who openly wished to see them destroyed. But I've also read about Buddhist extremism towards Islam in other countries as well. And it's just obvious they don't always get along so well. I imagine the basis of this issue is religion, but if there's regular tention and acts of violence it could be deeper than that. Certainly not all Buddhists are peaceful. If they feel they are being tread upon, they can resort to violence just like anyone else. Now I can only account for violence against Buddhists in Afghanistan, as that is the only place I've seen it personally. But not being ingorant to the media, it's obvious these tensions and transgressions work both ways. I'm not sure if it's one side or both that needs to take a chill pill.
