    For the first time in Pakistan’s judicial history a woman belonging to the Hindu community has been appointed as a civil and judicial magistrate.

    Suman Bodani, hailing from Sindh’s Shahdadkot district, was declared eligible for the post after passing her judicial officers’ examination with flying colours –

    Speaking to a foreign news outlet, Bodani said she belonged to an underdeveloped rural area of Sindh, where she witnessed poor struggling to cope with various challenges life throws at them. “They cannot even afford to lodge cases, and that is the reason behind my decision of joining law [studies] so I can bring justice to them,” she was quoted as saying.

    After completing her intermediate from her native town Shahdadkot, Bodani persuaded law and acquired Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree from Hyderabad and Master of Laws (LLM) from Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto Institute of Science and Technology (SZABIST) in Karachi.

    Bodani also said she faced resistance form her own community as they did not like girls working in the law field. However, her family including her father and siblings extended their full support to her. “My family did not pay any heed to what people would say and helped me achieve my goal.”

    Last year, Justice Syeda Tahira Safdar made history after becoming the first woman chief justice of a high court in the country.

    She was also the first woman appointed as a civil judge in Balochistan and holds the distinction of being the first woman in the province appointed as a judge in the Balochistan High Court.

    Congratulations to Ms. Suman Bodani for following in the footsteps of Safdar J. May their numbers increase and may they continue to support the rule of law in their country.

    CORRECTION: She's not the first Hindu female judge. Our media as usual in the hurry to break news didn't even bothered to fact check it.

    Little known fact is Hinduism is actually the fastest growing religion in Pak due to high birth rate Pakistanis make the 4th largest hindu population in the world and some Hindu festivals like Holi and Diwali are now official holidays in Pakistan.Still another great news another step closer to Pakistan becoming more tolerant and free of prejudice.
