On several fronts you are right, when you say that Hinduism is not an expansionist religion, and so it does not care who converts and who does not, whereas Islam is an expansionist religion, which cuts and spears anyone in their path that does not convert.
There are Hindu extremists no doubt much of this is a reaction to the centuries of Islamic death and destruction wrought on the Indian sub-continent against the Hindus.
