- It is highly unlikely that the Bharati could ever regain use of his right arm, given that the muscles are severely atrophied, coupled with a loss of circulation and permanent nerve damage in the arm. Essentially, any attempt to use it normally would destroy it. The arm’s connection to the rest of the body is the only thing that has preserved it from straight-up necrosis.
- As far as what would happen? You would likely cause Mr. Bharati a great deal of pain, not only physically but spiritually as well, as he believes that his eternal salute promotes world peace. As the bone structure is still intact, the arm would likely not snap like a twig but rather sunder at a joint, where cartilage has dried and receded. Basically, you would break his arm, but maybe not in half.
- You would also garner a lot of rebuke from his well-wishers. Given that he is a respected religious figure, Bharati is certain to be in the presence of devoted believers and proponents. They would probably see this as an offense against Bharati and the faith in general. As a result, they may have a marginally difficult time swarming, battering, and subduing you and detaining you for the police/administering vigilante justice.
