His life changes after his sister comes to India from Pakistan and insists that he send Ali to a good school. This causes tension with his neighbours and seminary teachers who start threatening Hakim and persecuting Ali with false reasons as they want him to become a scholar of Quran while Hakim and his sister Zahra want him to become a doctor.
