JIJABAI

Farsightedness

Jija Matha was a woman of great foresight. To quote an instance, she played a great part in bringing back to the Hindu fold brave soldier like Bajaji Nimbalkar who had embraced Islam. He was a valiant general. To allow such a person to remain on the side of the enemies would weaken the Maratha Kingdom. In those days many people were opposed to such a move. They argued that once a Hindu was converted to another faith he could not be admitted again to the Hindu faith. It required much courage to say that if a Hindu converts wished to return to Hinduism, he should be welcomed. Jija Matha persuaded every one that her view was reasonable. She did not stop at that. After getting Nimbalkar back to the Hindu faith she also gave Shivaji's daughter Sakhubai in marriage to his son Mahadaji. What love of her religion And how liberal-minded!
