SUFIS AND MILITANCE
Let us take the example of a famous Chishti Sufi Gisu Daraz. "Gisu Daraz learned Sanskrit and acquired knowledge of the Hindu epics in an attempt to refute the religious beliefs of Hinduism....Gisu Daraz refused to recognized the importance of Hindu ascetic exercises calling them merely physical exercises, which failed to lead to an understanding of the truth. The latter, according to Gisu Daraz, depended only on obedience to the Sharia.

"Sufi Daraz was one of the more orthodox among the Chishtis but reflects a common sentiment among Sufis to exalt the Sharia, which requires denying the validity of other forms of mysticism and religion. Similar is the view of Ahmed Sirhindi that "some infidels who exhibited a certain degree of love for God were able to develop mystical ecstasy but without obeying the Sharia of the Prophet they were doomed." In other words, only those who follow the Sharia can be genuine mystics and all others are false, however genuine the states they achieve appear to be or however other virtues they might demonstrate in their own lives.

Let us remember Sharia laws that require the testimony of two women to equal that of one man to see how unbalanced its ideas are.  Can one imagine the position of Hindus under such laws? For a Hindu to say Hinduism was as good as Islam would be taken not as a statement of conciliation but of blasphemy and punished accordingly. For a Hindu to say that Hinduism was better than Islam would merit a death sentence.
