A war ensued from the pogrom; he enlisted in the army to avenge the killing of his loved ones and compatriots. He was on guard’s duty where prisoners of war were incarcerated and spotted among them, the cruel landlord who incited the mob that slain his parents. On the persuasion of the angel who appeared to him in a trance, he freed the murderer and as a consequence was sentenced to death with by the high command of his tribe’s army.
Of the two marksmen assigned to execute them, one refused to shot him on discovering he was his blood brother. The execution was halted and the condemned duo was sent to the fiercest battle by the General Officer Commanding their army.
