It, of course, takes a huge amount of courage to do this. Before she gave up on her life, for the sake of thousands of people, she asked the protagonist to take revenge for their sacrifice, more brutally. 

In response, Pathaan gave her a salute, for being a true braveheart. And, this single scene left us with tears, anger and chills – all at the same time.
