SUFIS AND MILITANCE
As Rizvi notes: "Although Mustafa Kemal (Ataturk) had abolished the Ottoman sultanate in 1922 and the last Ottoman caliphate two years later, the mystical hope of reviving the caliphate never died in India, particularly in Deoband." Of course it is well known that the Indian Independence movement, with Hindu support, agitated in the early twenties for the restoration of the Caliphate in order to draw the Muslims into the independence movement.

This led to the great disaster of Moplah massacre of over ten thousand Hindus in Kerala, not to any Muslim-Hindu unity. Maulana Azad, who worked for the independence of India, was also a follower of Sirhindi and opposed the ideas of Akbar. In fact most Sufis in India today appear to be of the Sirhindi-Waliullah line of thought. The great majority of Sufis promoted the partition of India and the continued Islamization of the subcontinent.

Sufis continue to be active in Pakistan and Bangladesh, where Hindus are routinely oppressed, and encourage the complete Islamization of these cultures, eradicating any Hindu vestiges in the lives of the people. Sufis are active in India upholding Islamic separatism and making sure Muslims do not get assimilated into Indian society. While many Sufis, particularly certain Chishtis, did criticize intolerant Sufis like Sirhindi and later Waliullah on a doctrinal level, they did little to really oppose them.
