      Jahangir was certainly willing to engage with other religions, and Edward Terry, an English chaplain in India at the time, saw a ruler under which "all Religions are tolerated and their Priests [held] in good esteem."[13] Brahmins on the banks of the Ganges received gifts from the emperor, while following a meeting with Jadrup, a Hindu ascetic.

      The Tuzuk-i-Jahangiri is the most important source book for the reconstruction of the history of the Mughal empire in the reign of Jahangir. Although Jahangir's father akbar prepared the scheme for conquering Bengal, the Mughal conquest of Bengal was completed in the reign of Jahangir and the credit is given to Subahdar islam khan chisti. A second copy of the Akbar-nama was illustrated late in Akbar’s reign and is known, from library accession notices on the first folio of volume I, to have been in the imperial library during the reigns of Jahangir (–28) and Shah Jahan (–58). 21 G.
