This could also have indirectly been the cause of Hassan's death, because if he had known, his life would have theoretically been completely different. But the reason Baba did not tell this to anyone because it would have put their family in danger. Being related to a Hazran would have meant suffering for all of them, so Baba did the righteous thing and kept it to himself in order to keep his reputation in the community.
