Jodha Akbar 19th February written episode: Akbar absolutely refuses to forgive Bakshi Banu even after the ladies from his family individually requests him to do so. Jodha wants to try for a second time. Hamida Begum encourages her. Jodha meets Akbar and finds him extremely upset.
Jodha argues with Akbar saying that Mughal law never supports punishing the innocent. She says that Bakshi Banu’s child is being punished, even before it has taken birth. The child is going to be deprived of its parents’ company and there can be no greater misfortune for a child.
Jodha also says that if the victim of a crime pardons the criminal, then the punishment is commuted, as happened in the case of Adam Khan, when Rukaiya Begum forgave him. Jodha appeals to Akbar saying that she cannot bear the suffering of Bakshi Banu, whom she sees as her sister.

Adam Khan becomes worried about the fact that he has to catch the dacoits, as Akbar has given him the responsibility. He discovers ways to hide his own guilt in the matter. Stupid jawida is excited thinking that her husband is doing a great job. Maha Manga keeps provoking Rukaiya and making her feel insecure about her position.
