Does breaking wind or leakage like madhi coming out while making ghusl invalidate ghusl?

Dear Brother / Sister,
What is fard in ghusl is to rinse the mouth and the nose, and to wash the whole body without leaving any place dry. To utter niyyah (intention), to make wudhu and to utter basmala are among the sunnahs of ghusl. Ghusl is valid even if the sunnahs are not performed.
If something that invalidates wudu takes place while making ghusl, it invalidates wudu, not ghusl. You can keep making ghusl.
The leakage that takes place while making ghusl does not invalidate ghusl but it invalidates the wudu property of ghusl. That is, this ghusl, which is sound and removes the state of janabah, is not valid for performing a prayer. It is necessary to make wudu again for worshipping, but this ghusl is valid.
To put it in a scholarly way, anything that invalidates ghusl also invalidates wudu but not everything that invalidates wudu invalidates ghusl. Therefore, any leakage from the urinary tract, any liquid from a wound, blood coming from a tooth, etc while making ghusl do not invalidate ghusl. Ghusl made along with them is valid but wudu is invalid.
