Yes Viola, Sufis are just as violent as Sunnis and Shias!! Chechans, Muslims from Dagestan and probably surrounding areas, Muslims in Kashmir, are all Sufis and they show same violence towards non-Muslims as their so called violent brothers. Kashmiri sufi Muslims have driven out the entire Kashmiri Hindu Pandit population from their generational homeland in Kashmir. These Pandits became refugees in their own homeland in India.

Then of course you remember Beslan where Chechan sufi Muslims killed more than 300 school children.

The so called Sufi "saints" who came with Mughals in India did not prevent genocide and mass murder of Hindus by Muslim kings. On the contrary they probably supported the kings for converting or killing them. More than 80 million Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs, Jains, other non-Muslims were systematically killed , murdered, beheaded by Muslims in last 1400 years. Of course the world wide toll is more than 300 million.
