SUFIS AND MILITANCE
Conclusion

Until Hindus can look at religion in a discriminating manner they are bound to be duped and led into conversion through the back door or Trojan horse of their own tolerance and love of mysticism. Not all religious groups are good, spiritual or true, certainly not in all respects. Not all mysticism is gentle, tolerant or yogic. That some aspect of a religion is good or that religious leader was an extraordinary saint or sage should not be used to give a rubber stamp to all that is done in the name of that religion.

One thing Hindus should remember is that the main Western religions were born of blood. Christ was crucified at a young age before he could even train his disciples adequately, and many of his disciples were martyred as well. Mohammed himself fought many battles, as did his followers. Indic religions, on the other hand, were generally born of equanimity and asceticism. Even in the case of the Mahabharata when there was a period of fighting, it was not done in the name of religion or to promote conversion of any type.

This birth in blood gives Western religions a certain vital passion and a capacity to arouse people's emotions that can become unwholesome. The call of the crucified savior became a cry for retribution for his death, which was then cast upon all non-Christian. Mohammed's cry for Jihad was translated into a war against all non-Muslims, particularly image worshippers like the Hindus. Religions born of war and oppression tend to recreate the circumstances of their birth, and project these on the world around them. This samskara of conflict is so deep seated that it may not be possible to remove it without changing these religions altogether.
