This is one of those situations that doesn't really have a good answer. On the one hand, this is not the compassionate actions that Buddhists should be exhibiting. Just like in Myanmar, the actions of the Buddhists are atrocious. They show a very un-Buddhist attitude to take. On the other hand, this Muslim subtle take over of everything is quite disturbing, and someone needs to put a stop to it. I find it interesting how, when they're the minority in a country, they cry foul until they're the majority, then oppress everyone that doesn't agree with them. So, like I started off saying, there's no easy answer to this problem.
