Theory:

     When the doctor came out of Mulan's tent, he knew the truth.
 
     “The General is a woman?” yelled the soldiers. “How can this be?” Some called out, “She tricked us!” and “We will  not fight for a woman!” They said, “Punish  her! Make her pay! The cost is for her to die!” But others called out, in voices just as loud, “With Mulan, we win every battle!” They said, “Stay away from our General!”
Explanation:
 
Mulan's identity became known to the doctor who treated her. Her true identity was quickly spread among the soldiers. The soldiers were stunned, and some shouted, "The General is a woman?" Others claimed Mulan had deceived them and that they were unwilling to work under a woman. Some soldiers yelled, "Mulan should be punished by being put to death."

However, Mulan's admirers (supporters) in the army endorsed her since they knew that her skills and dedication had helped them win battles. So, Mulan's supporters resolved to protect her from the angry mob and not allow any offenders to get near her since they were grateful to Mulan for helping them win the battle.
