The muslim said that wasn’t anyone nearby that could help but he would try if Guru Sahib did not mind. Guru Gobind Singh said that he viewed people of every religion equally, it was a persons deeds that he looked at.
The muslim blew hot moist air onto the bandage and opened it carefully. Guru Gobind Singh was pleased and commanded the muslim not to smoke tobacco or any other substances.
