The word bursa means keeping your face open. Barda's opposite is that sabita, the central character of the novel, has opened her face. He has also opened his mind. It is learnt that Muslims question the rituals of their religion, which sabita denies saying that it is the highest of all, and that only those who belong to their minds can reach heaven. Moreover, christianity withdraws from the true and light redeemer of the spiritual violations committed in the name of religion, the atrocities that take place within monasteries, and the spiritual and light that prompted him to get out of life that he had been conducting for more than twenty-four years. Although both belong to a different religion, this article reveals that their theocratic principles are the same.
