SUFIS AND MILITANCE
Shaikh Auliya was the most celebrated disciple of the famous Sufi Baba Farid, one of the most lauded of the Chishti saints. Auliya is considered to be the greatest Sufi saint of the fourteenth century. This famous Shaikh of the most liberal Sufi order is found consorting with one of the most treacherous and intolerant Muslim invaders of India. The Shaikh did make statements of religious tolerance but it is clear where his political loyalty resided.

Barani, another Chishti Shaikh believed, "Hindus should be deprived of their wealth, and philosophers and non-Sunnis should be liquidated. "Similarly the great Indian Persian poet and Sufi Amir Khusraw it is said "A great favorite of the Delhi Sultans, Amir Khusraw served them and wrote eulogies in their praise." He similarly wrote in praise of Alauddin Khalji. He traveled with another Sultan of the Tughlak line in his Bengali expedition. Though he gave praise to Hinduism in some of his writings he was clearly on the side of the Islamic rulers in their aggressive wars against Hindus.

Hence the existence of a few liberal statements about Hinduism does not mean that the Sufi involved did not support Islamic military action in India. We must remember that Muslims had praise for Christ but this did not slow down their efforts to conquer Christian countries or their ferocity in their attacks. Note the cruel Turkish attacks upon the Greeks, Serbs and Hungarians in this regard, or the massacre of the Armenians after World War I.
