SUFIS AND MILITANCE
Hindus are great believers in mysticism and often let their discrimination disappear in face of claims of spiritual experiences or powers. This Hindu gullibility to mysticism is perhaps nowhere more evident than in their relationship with the Sufis or Islamic mystics. Many Hindus have trouble with what they perceive as orthodox, fundamentalist or militant Islam with its holy wars that have often targeted Hindus.

They don't like the exclusive rhetoric of Islam that Allah is the only God, Mohammed is the last prophet, and the Koran is the last revelation. They dislike the Sharia or traditional Islamic law with its harsh punishments and religious intolerance. They have been suspicious of the Islamic effort to create a Caliphate or Pan-Islamic kingdom that would include India and eliminate Hinduism altogether. But call Islam Sufi, meaning mystical, and Hindus will uncritically accept whatever is said, even if it hides the same old fundamentalism and militance Hindus oppose.

They will bow down at the grave of a Sufi saint without inquiring about what made the particular person holy. In a number of instances it was his slaughter of the infidels that was responsible for his sanctity, including the ancestors of these self-same Hindus. Hindus fail to examine what Sufis have done to Hindus historically and blind themselves to frequent Sufi alliances with Islamic militance and aggression. All a Sufi has to do is to appear a little tolerant and Hindus are quick to turn him into a saint, regardless of what he actually does throughout his life.
