maybe. but see before B'ji did the Khulasa, pretty much ALL of brf had brought into the sufi / syncretic Kool-aid from the media and sarkari history.
There are many in South who would just cringe at the name of Islam. They don't care about Sufism, Shia, Sunni ityadi. All this Ganga-jamuna tehzeeb is not part of the narrative in South. Islam like Christianity was viewed as a monolithic entity. Their nuances were not discussed. People jutted hated those religions or just did not care.
Decades ago, my grandmother had a very simple phrase onlee "Thulakka Badavaa" or Muslim rascals, no doubt tempered with centuries of experience. It wasn't just about partition.. which was the latest nail in the coffin.
