When Nitai saw Jagai and Madhai in Navadvip His heart immediately melted for them. Everyone else who saw Jagai and Madhai would get a repulsive feeling upon seeing them. But Nitai got attracted to them. His compassionate heart could not not see their miserable condition. Were Jagai and Madhai really in a miserable condition? Apparently no. They were living life king size. They were enjoying life to the fullest without caring for the consequences of their actions. They were extracting as much sensual pleasure from this material world as possible. In fact, they had made the lives of others miserable, not their own. Others lived constantly in fear of them. They used to loot anyone they wanted in order to acquire sense objects for themselves. So why did Nitai feel compassion for them?
Actually Nitai was not so much pained by looking at their present condition. His real cause of pain was to foresee how much Jagai and Madhai are going to be punished in hell. Nitai was hearing in advance their piteous cries for help when they will be ruthlessly tortured in hell. Nitai could not bear to see that. That is why Nitai developed a soft corner for them. The thought of the extreme suffering which they will undergo in the future made Nitai so favorable towards them. The materialistic people of this world honour those philanthropists who develop a soft corner towards those who are suffering in the present. Not a single philanthropist is able to conceive the future suffering of a living entity. Nitai knew that the amount of sufferings on Earth were nothing in comparison to the amount of sufferings in hell. That is why He was most compassionate on the sinful people even though the sinful people were apparently enjoying and had no sufferings in their present lives. This is known as real compassion. Only the Supreme Personality of Godhead can establish such a criterion of showing compassion.
During Vedic times, if someone committed the crime of a murder then it was considered an act of mercy by the King to give such a murderer death sentence. The death penalty saved the murderer from being punished badly in hell for the same crime. This proves that the level of suffering in hellish planets is too high in comparison to the level of suffering on Earth. Therefore, Nitai ignored the fact that they were enjoying and living in a carefree manner, and He paid much more attention to their forthcoming sufferings in hell. This was the real reason why Nitai’s heart melted for Jagai and Madhai. Have you ever heard of anyone who shows compassion for those who are living happily by torturing and bullying others? Can anyone possibly feel compassion for such hardcore criminals? No. No one except Nitai and Nitai’s devotees can do that. Joy Nitai. Doyal Nitai.
