But the destiny of the demon was that his own son prahallad was a staunch believer of Vishnu and by every attempt of his father stops him from doing so he never deviated from the righteous path.
When no way were left his father ordered his son to be murdered and his sister Holika intervened to accomplish the task as she was blessed not to be burnet by fire, when she with prahallad entered the fire, Vishnu miraculously saved him and burnt Holika instead and this was then marked as the victory of good over evil and the festival of Holika Dehan came to existence but the story was not finished as the evil demon lord was still alive was planning to kill the son by his own hands, to stop this from happening lord shiva incarnated as Narsimha and killed the demon to safeguard the safety of his devotee.
