In the movie Kaafiron ki Namaaz, the soldier character or the other turns on and off the radio a couple of times. Everytime the radio is on, there is a radio show going on. The host of the show reads some letters from the listeners of the show. In one of the scenes, he reads out a letter from a soldier named Gurman Singh. He writes in the letter about his deceased friend Naushad Ali. He adds a poem written by his deceased friend. It goes as follows:
When there's benefit, I am the pride,
When there's a riot, I am a toilet,
When there's nothing, I am a call girl
Some call me Dīn*, Some call me Dharma**
By what name do you know me? Do you know me at all?
You most certainly don't know me.
The host appreciates the poet and the poem. The soldier and the writer listen to the poem silently. Writer was a bit surprised on the letter. The content in the letter is related to the soldier character and matches with his mentality. On the other hand, it is opposite of the writer's mentality.
