SUFIS AND MILITANCE
So-called Hindu-Muslim tolerance was mainly a one way street. While Hindus would sometimes worship at the graves of great Sufis (that were often erected on the sites of Hindu temples), Muslims would never worship at Hindu temples where images or idols were used. In this way Hindu tolerance and love of saints was exploited in order to draw them into Islam. In other words Sufis were tolerant of Hindus in so far as Hindus were honoring them and they used this to promote conversion.

The same Sufis did not stand between Muslim armies and the Hindus when the Hindus were being slaughtered. In fact Sufi tolerance does not even extend to all Islamic sects. Most Sufis not only don't accept all other religions and reject Hinduism as polytheism; they don't accept all Islamic sects. Most Sufis, as strict Sunnis are opposed to the Shias, Ahmadiyas and other non-Sunni groups, sometimes promoting military action against them as well.

Sufis have been strong opponents of the Shias and often criticize them. Recently when the head of the Naqshbandis, the largest Sufi order, was in Canada his spokesmen gave many statements that were critical of the Shias. Even so-called liberal Sufi orders like the Chishtis will not be found praising the Shias.
