Isn’t the royal harem under Ruqaiya Begum? Then why is Jodha interfering in the matters of the Royal Harem. Is she really trying to get close to Akbar?

No matter what the situation is, Jodha Begum tends to cross Ruqaiya Begum’s path every now and then, even though if it is not intentional. From few days this has been quite apparent – The moment Ruqaiya Begum takes a decision, the Rajvanshi Begum accidently or let’s say, as per the script bounces back at her immediately. Call it fate or bad luck but Ruqaiya Begum’s stars seem to be in Mangal dasha these days. The poor lady is facing problems one after the other.

One after the other things are trembling straight in front of Ruqaiya Begum – First the kashti sawaar, where she couldn’t go with the Shehenhshah and now the interference of Jodha in the matters of harem. Yes, Maham Anga has been again trying to be her notorious best by playing ek teer se do nishaane, aiming at both Ruqaiya and Jodha Begum.

While, Jodha is at the receiving end of Maham Anga conspiracy plots, Ruqaiya Begum seems to be the victim here for a change. In addition, I do not understand why Jodha has to interfere in all the things that are done by Ruqaiya for instance taking decisions with respect to kaniz and bandi of the royal harem. I mean can’t Jodha let Ruqaiya do what she wants after all the Shehshah himself has given her all the powers of the harem.


But, no, Jodha wants to poke her nose in these matters and thereby get into the harem mess which will can drag her into some big trouble and eventually create misunderstandings between her and Akbar.

What do you think should Jodha interfere in Harem matters and decisions taken by Ruqaiya Begum Sultan?
