further at the
Aligarh Muslim University
Aligarh Muslim University soon after his marriage.
During his stay the Babri Masjid demolition occurs and as a result he
turns a fundamentalist. His wife an educated Muslim girl (Bhavana)
tries to alter and change the ideals of her Islamist fanatic husband.
But to reform himself he rather chooses the way to jail and starts
afresh. The thread of the story is the aftermath of the Babri Masjid
demolition and the Gujarat riots.
Anwar encounters a group of Karsevaks in a train, all of them headed
towards the demolition of Babri Masjid. The encounter greatly disturbs
him and he is no longer the same loving and romantic husband to his
wife as well as the engrossed PG student.
He writes a letter to Samira about his intentions and his decision to
join Jehad to seek revenge on others. Anwar goes on to become a
full-time extremist and plants a bomb in a hotel at the Ramzan time.
This hurts his grandfather a lot who is always against extremism.
Anwar on the other hand is unstoppable and believes that the deaths of
innocents are a part of the Jehad. Sahib tells his grandson to stop
all his activities at once and warns him about the ugly consequences,
the community has to face, because of his deeds, but to no avail.
Meanwhile, Anwar lands up in jail. Samira only has one wish, her
husband should come back to his normal life. He should become her old
Anwar, romantic and soft person.
