1 Answer

  • A Muslim weaver and Nooran’s father, who is described as tall, lean, and bald. He is also blind, serves as the mullah of the local mosque, and is friends with Meet Singh. Imam is often a subject of pity, for his wife and son died “within a few days of each other,” but he is also respected by many. He and Nooran plan to leave Mano Majra for Pakistan, and they are on the train that is the site of an intended massacre plotted by a group of Sikh conspirators. Nooran avoids telling her father that she is pregnant withJuggut’s baby, out of fear that he will either marry her off or murder her.
