I assume you're talking about the recent unrest between religious groups? The clashes received a lot of media attention, but a colleague of mine was travelling there at the time and said she saw nothing, nor experienced any increased tension. While what happened (and still happens on a smaller scale from tine to time) is potentially dangerous, it appears not to be impacting on places where tourists go. If you see a demonstration or public gathering just move away and it should be fine.
Here're some other tips you might find handy.
