This is not the first time when a person belonging from a Hindu community has become a judge in Pakistan. The first judge from the Hindu community was Justice Rana Bhagwandas who served as a Chief Justice for a brief period between 2005 and 2007. Suman Kumari has become the first Hindu women to be appointed as a Civil Judge in Muslim-majority Pakistan. Suman who hails from Qambar-Shahdadkot in Sindh province will serve in her native district. She has completed her LLB from Hyderabad and did her Masters in law from Karachi's Szabist University. “I have entered the field of law because I know that in backward areas of Sindh, poor people need a lot of advice and assistance in legal matters. My father and my family supported me a lot as in our community, it is not easy for a woman to enter such field”, she said. Her father Dr. Pawan Kumar Bodan who is an eye specialist wants his daughter to provide free legal aid to poor people especially to the Hindu Community. “Suman has opted for a challenging profession but I am sure she will go places through hard work and honesty”, the father said.
