Hindu Woman in Pakistan Appointed As Civil Judge

ISLAMABAD – Suman Kumari became the first Hindu woman in Pakistan to be appointed a civilian judge, Express Tribune reported Tuesday.
Suman, a native of Qambar-Shahdadkot, will serve in his home district.
She passed her baccalaureate Review of Hyderabad and did her law degree from Szabist University in Karachi, Dawn news reported.
According to Pawan Kumar Bodan, his father, Suman wants to provide free legal assistance to the have-nots of Qambar-Shahdadkot.
“Suman has opted for a challenging profession, but I am sure she will work hard and honestly,” said the father.
His father is an eye specialist, while Suman’s older sister is a software engineer and another sister is a chartered accountant.
This is not the first time that a person from the Hindu community is appointed judge. The first judge of the Hindu community was Judge Rana Bhagwandas, who served as Acting Chief Judge for brief periods between 2005 and 2007.
Hindus account for nearly 2% of Pakistan’s total population, and Hinduism remains Pakistan’s second largest religion after Islam.
