Talk:Al-Milal wa al-Nihal
The very reason why this book is renowned is because its written from a NPOV; it presents a historical and philosophical study of religions without critically analysing them.
Al-hihal why its taken to be one of the earliest books written on comparative religion. Whether Shahrastani was a Sunni or not is disputed in the first place.
I guess then, that you haven’t read much on Shahrastani. The rest of your comment, I don’t know what you’re talking about. This book gives a general account of all religions that existed upto his time.

Al-Milal Wa-Al-Nihal. Book of Religious and Philosophical Sects
Ws book was, in the same vein, a collection of the “doctrinal opinions of all the world’s people”. It does not accept or deny basic tenets of any religion.
It just states what they are. This is not a Sunni book on Islamic studies and its wrong to categorise it strictly under Islamic literature.
