Jodha Akbar April 20th episode: Jodha gets dressed in a Muslim outfit given by Hamida. Hamida takes her to the mosque secretly. The Muslim priest asks Jodha whether she is getting converted under pressure. Hamida says that Jodha has willingly come with her. The priest tells Hamida that it is his duty to ask the question, as forced conversion is a crime.
The priest tells Jodha to utter that she is getting converted to Islam with true faith, love and dedication. He adds that she cannot lie before the Almighty. The words hit Jodha’s brain and she thinks that she cannot lie.
Jodha also remembers Akbar’s words, as he said that the conversion is not only a matter of religion, but also of a person’s moral integrity. If a Queen gets converted under pressure, then the common people would have no freedom of faith and religion.
Jodha thinks while Akbar is trying hard to establish his integrity as a ruler, she cannot do injustice to his efforts. She stands up and says that she has been pressured to accept Islam.
Hamida tries to convince Jodha, but the priest says that he cannot perform the rituals after knowing that the Queen is not willing to change her religion. Hamida becomes angry with Jodha.
Akbar notices that Hamida is not talking with Jodha. He asks Jodha about it; she avoids the topic cleverly and says that she will solve it by herself. Incidentally, Akbar meets a person who has come to the palace to return a piece of ornament, which was left by Jodha in the palanquin.
He comes to know that Hamida visited the mosque with Jodha. He starts thinking why Jodha did not share the matter with him and whether it has any relation with the bitterness between the two.
