SUFIS AND MILITANCE
This alliance with the Sharia and attempts to placate the orthodox Mullahs led to yet more excesses and distortions. The Sufis had to be doubly orthodox so as to avoid claims of unorthodoxy against them. The second is Sufism's attachment to Mohammed and the Koran. Sufis, conservative and liberal, were all praise for Mohammed who himself destroyed idols and temples and encouraged wars against unbelievers.

One could argue that Islamic mysticism possesses an Asuric (violent and intolerant) potential because Mohammed himself projected a religious model of military expansion, reinforced by the early Caliphs, that easily arouses the masses and draws in subconscious forces. Certainly Islam as a militant religion tends to project a militant mysticism, and militant mysticism can easily fall into an Asuric or aggressive/intolerant model.

Some yogis, like Swami Vivekananda, argued that Mohammed was an example of an untrained person who fell into mystical states and so with all his truth, also spoke delusion. As the Swami noted: "Think of the good Mohammed did to the world, and think of the great evil that has been done through his fanaticism. Think of the millions massacred through his teachings, mothers bereft of their children, children made orphans, whole countries destroyed, millions upon millions of people killed."
