Hindus like to read the mystical statements of Sufis that talk of Divine love, oneness and humility. Yet they ignore equally common Sufi statements that promote Islamisation of the world and are highly critical of other religious beliefs. Hindus fail to think that Sufis, though they may have much mysticism, may still foster aggression and intolerance. They fail to discriminate between the different types of mysticism that are possible, which includes militant kinds, or to notice that such militant mysticism has been prominent in many Sufi groups.

That Sufi orders have a political agenda that seeks to convert Hindus and Islamicize India is something that Hindus seldom consider, though much historical data exists to confirm this and many Sufis are engaging in it to the present day. In India the image has arisen of the mystic Sufi who is like a Yogi, who accepts all religions, who has no agenda of conversion, who believes in non-violence, karma and rebirth, or may even be a vegetarian.

Hindus are inclined to think that Sufis are otherworldly mystics, rebels against Islam, or that Sufis believe in a universal religion beyond Islam that includes all other religions in an equitable manner. While such ideas may be true of a few rare Sufis, and a few more may have played this role in order to give Hindus a more favorable image of Islam, any clear study of the Sufis, including discussion with their modern members shows how one-sided, if not erroneous this view is.
