Sarfaraz tries to stop them, but finally due to kishan Lal and Narayan Baba who come, the matter comes to control. The fight stops, and then they all start narrating their concerns to kishan. the muslims say that there’s just one way of finding the truth and thats to find if he is circumcised or not. they check and say that he isnt a muslim. Kishan says that it could be anyone, but they start fighting, without caring that the person who died was a human, but due to the scuffle, now lives of many people shall be harmed, and particularly this dead body came on the day of eid, when they should be celerating instead of cutting each other’s throats, and the right way to answer the heinous crimes is to maintain peace and stability.
