War with Khan Jahan Lodi:

The chiefs of Bundel Kahand were also opposed him. He was killed in 1630 near the fort of Kalanjar.
War with Portuguese:
The activity of Portuguese settlers capturing orphan children of the Hindus and Muslims and forcibly converting them to Christianity was objectionable to Mughals. Shah Jahan also determined to crush their power. In 1631 the Governor of Bengal, Kasim Khan was ordered to punish the Portuguese and forces were sent for the purpose. The portuguese surrendered after the seize of Hugli which was lasted for three months.
Shah Jahan`s Deccan Policy:
During the period of Akbar Khandesh and a part of Ahmednagar was conquered. Jahangir also carried on a war with Malik Amber. Shah Jahan aimed to complete the conquest of Deccan. Malik Ambar of Ahmednagar was died in 1629. As a result of differences between Fateh Khan, the son of Malik Ambar and Sultan Murtaza Nizam. Fateh Khan was thrown into prison. Later Sultan Murtaza Nizam was murdered. The army of Bijapur attacked the fort of Daulatabad which was in possession of Fateh Khan. Mahabat Khan went to relief the fort on behalf of Shah Jahan. The fort was surrendered after the seize for two months. Thus the Nizam Shahi dynasty was ended in Ahmednagar in 1632.
War with Bijapur:
Shah Jahan sent written commands to the Bijapur and Golkonda rulers requiring to recognize his sovereignty. The Golkonda ruler recognized the sovereignty of Shah Jahan. But the Bijapur ruler was not recognized. Hence his territory was attacked by the Shah Jahan. Khan Dowran was entrusted the command and the capital of Bijapur was seized. On hopless condition Bijapur Sultan came to terms with the Mughals and a treaty was concluded accordingly.
Muhals lost Kandhar in 1623 during the period of Jahangir. Shah Jahan determined to recapture Kandhar and sent Aurangzeb for that purpose in 1649. Kandhar was seized for three months but there was no result. In 1652 Mughals invaded against Kandhar for second time under the command of Aurangzeb. But it was also failed. In 1653 third invasion against Kandhar took place under the command of Dara, son of Shah Jahan. But was also not successful. The failure of Mughal army to reconquer Kandhar in three efforts exposed its weakness and inefficiency.
