“A socially important drama is being enacted in the plot. There is a chance for making type characters.

She has found out the minute differences among them.
Muhammed Musaliar, who is ecstatic in the Islamic renovation, is not disturbed by the rough realities formed by the riots. He does not want to wound the conventional calm of the rustic people. He was entangled by the eloquence of the black-coated man. He is enchanted by his daughter Aminakuty’s romantic innocence, her poetic question, that the religion of her goat, if it is a Hindu or Musalman is formed out of her childish innocence.

His misuses the religion and men for his selfish attainments.
