Insecurity..

They need political patronage for their existence and survival.. Whereas, Hindu saints are self-contained and has no political boundaries.

Unlike in case of hindus ,It is said that muslims vote collectively under direction of their clerics.....thus muslim clerics become important at poll times while hindu saints have no such bearing......

Muslims, especially the clerics, have always been active in politics since Islam. That is the reason Muslim kingdoms imposed taxes on non-Muslims and also encouraged conversion. Islam began as a minority community and for its survival and spreading the religion active participation of religious bodies in the government's decision-making was a necessity. While, Hindu religion was a majority and its polytheism beliefs accepted all religions into its fold and there was a always scope for discussion and adaptation. This is the reason we could find Buddhists, Jains, Vaishnavs, Shaivites, etc, living amicably for ages.

In our country, Secular means tilted towards Minorities. If you are impartial and treat all religions equal, then you are a Communal.

Because Muslim religious leaders think themselves to be standing and placed weak in the Indian society as compared to Hindu saints.
