The teacher considered Bulleh Shah's query most contentious and refused to answer the question which in his mind bordered on the blasphemous.
Despite his teacher's attempts to dissuade him from rocking the religious boat, Bulleh Shah just couldn't contain his restless heart: He grew his hair long, dressed outrageously, danced wearing ankle bracelets, picked up the iktara (the one-stringed South Asian folk instrument) and began singing poetry.
