Even at the time of the Hazrat Thanavi/Hazrat Madani disagreement, extreme elements had gone as far as declaring the opposing group "kafir, murtad, wajib ul qatl."
Hazrat Shaykh Zakariyya nawwarallahu marqadahu wrote Al Etidal fi Maratib al Rijaal during those testing times, and his words of guidance hold true for the disagreements we see today.
