Later the villagers objects that he can't keep her home like that, he should either marry her or leave her in a camp, where people bound for Pakistan are located. Boota decides that since he is far older, he would better leave her at the camp. As he is about to send her off with a man bound for the camp and who is prepared to marry her there, Zainab, who was already learned about the sacrifice he have made for her and also got touched by his simplicity, asks Boota, if he is so poor that he cannot even feed her two Rotis per day to keep her alive; Boota Singh and Zainab falls in love and decides to get married. Boota's life transforms overnight. Then they have a baby girl. Boota Singh is pretty happy, matrimonially speaking, he is leading a pleasant life.
[edit] The End

An uncle of Boota who was scheming that Boota will die unmarried and so the family property will goes to him, becomes jealous on his marriage with Zainab and When in 1952 India and Pakistan agrees to depart the women left behind in riots, he informs the police that there is such Muslim girl in their village also. And in Boota's absence police forcibly dumps Zainab (leaving the kid behind) into a truck bound for a Refugee camp.

And then Zainab is sent to her parents in village Barki (Pakistan). Boota sells all his land and goes along with his child to Pakistan illegally. He is quickly arrested and brought before a judge who is quite willing to free him if his wife owns up. But, under pressure from her family, the girl backs off. A disappointed and mournful Boota jumps with his daughter before an oncoming train. He dies, but miraculously, his daughter is survived. Pakistani youth, overcome by this, hails him "Shaheed-E-Mohabbat Boota Singh" (Martyr-in-love, Boota Singh) and erect a Memorial and a Trust in his name.
