Demystifying the Sufis
India Forum: Comments, Opinion - Information Resource
News Summary: Perceptions are not history - they can never be. It is perceived in India, by many, that Sufis are living testimonies of secular face of Islam. and that they have played a pivotal role in shaping the secular fabric of this land. The facts, however, suggest otherwise. Folks Founder & Editor-in-chief U. Mahesh Prabhu Writes more.History testifies the fact that most of the Sufi saints came to India either accompanying the invading armies of Islamic marauders or just followed them in their sweeping .....read more in: Demystifying the Sufis

12 Harish on Feb-15 :

Most of the Sufi"s in India were murderers and praised Islamic rulers for their activities. Sufi"s were used as a fifth column by muslim rulers to entice hindu population to Islam, as the violent methods had put off hindus. They imitated the lifestyle of hindu saints and hindus fell for the tricks. Sufi"s also offered vital intelligence to Islamic rulers prior to invasions. In Maharashtra hindus in large numbers visit the grave of Afzal Khan who tried to kill Shivaji but was in turn killed by him. Fifteen years from now,(Sufi)Kasab"s grave will be visited by thousands of Hindus and he will hailed as the symbol of secularism by the media. All that hindus need is a grave and story of miracles and they will start worshipping the most vicious of fellows as saints.
11 S.Ghosh on Jan-21 :

Some Bauls are Vaishnavas, some Bauls are Sufis.
Muslim fanatics normally attack those Sufi Bauls.

10 g kapuria on Jan-21 :

SG.. You are right. Some Bauls are closer to the Vaishnavas. They were influenced by Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. Some claim that Nityananda prabhu"s son was the more direct influence. But they are not Vaishnavas, because they do not follow the Narada pancharatra, but practice quite different tantra.
9 g kapuria on Jan-21 :

SG..You are not correct about thee Bauls. They do take some inspiration from Sufi islam, but their worship songs are more from devotional Hinduism and tantric Buddhism.
8 S.Ghosh on Jan-20 :

Sufis may exist in Iran or Turkey just like the Orthodox Christians, but they are in great danger from the attacks from the Muslims.
Even in West Bengal recently Muslims often attack the Sufis ( commonly known as Baul singers).
Sufi shrines are patronized by the Hindus mainly.

7 g kapuria on Jan-11 :

shsharma.. I know that Sufis exist in Iran. They have some problems with the majority, but they do exist.

Sufism not only survived in India but harming Hindus and it is due to ignorance and lack of awareness in Hindus about the facts on Sufism.Hindus are leaderless and that is the reason for Sufis to survive in India. Sufism has no place in Islamic and Christian countries if care to see .
Sufis are friends of Muslims in general and Muslim rulers in particular which is clear from the history.
Why there are no Sufis in Saudi Arabia, Iran or other 56 Islamic countries?
5 g kapuria on Jan-04 :

SG.. Turkey is filled with Sufis of all kinds of sects.
4 S.Ghosh on Jan-04 :

Sufis have survived only in India, the land of the Hindus. In the country of its origin iran and Afghanistan they do ot exist. That is also the case in both Pakistan and Bangladesh, where Sufis are considered to be non-Muslims by the Wahabis.
This is the greatness of the Hindu religion, that the famous Sufi shrine Burdwan in West Bengal is located in the premises of the palace of the Hindu Maharaja Bijoy Chand Mahatab ( now University of Burdwan), two Brahmin Hindus are selling the flowers and rose water and other artifacts needed for the followers, the chairman of the managing committee is a Communist councilor.
This is the greatness of Hinduism.
3 David on Jan-03 :

Kindly Hindus should not blame their problems to others due to their own thoughtlessness... It"s like bunch of hens go to a fox (because of their infighting) for their own advantage... In process the fox gets its nurishment and grows stronger... The hens never relize this... Blaming or exposing fox will never change hens" lot... Only solution is hens neeed to change their brains and behaviour.

Appreciate the suggestion.

It would help if you can publish a blog at this website based on your review of the same book to back up your assertion, I quote you, "This book, when read by many, has the potential to change the very cultural profile of the Indian Subcontinent."

Thank you.

S.Ghosh on Jan-25 : Hinduism: Sankhya System & Guna - Part V [11 comments]

No Indian should look at the History of the world or History of Civilization written by any Anglo-Americans, as they always insult us, try to minimize the importance of India. In their books, Indian ancient civilization does not even exist, the history of India starts with the invasion of Alexander, with a brief story and Indus valley.

Pakistan has a strategic postion between China , Central Asia, India , Iran and Arabia. Unless India does not reabsorb Paksitan the US will have to cooperate with the Paks.
