2864 views

Our society always underestimates the capabilities of a common man. It is a fact that every one of us is different in some way, but for those who are more different or differently-abled, our society never showed mercy. The specially-abled people are still considered as a curse in Pakistani society. These people try to hide them from the public’s eye because our society sees their disability first and the person next!

But there are some differently-abled people who stood against the stigma and with great efforts, they tried to break the stereotype surrounding the disability. Saima Saleem is one of them. She is the first blind CSS officer of Pakistan. Saima is a gold-medalist from Kinnaird College, she is an MA in English Literature. She achieved sixth position in CSS exams after which she joined Pakistan Foreign Services in 2009. The visually-impaired Saima also worked as the Second Secretary on Human Rights at Pakistan’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations at Geneva.

It feels proud to mention that Saima Saleem’s brother, Yousaf Saleem is the first blind judge of Pakistan. He is the gold-medalist of Punjab University in LLB (Honors). Yousaf is the topper of written exams held among 6500 candidates and he is among the 21 who qualified for the interview. Due to his blindness, Saleem failed in the interview. But on the recommendation of Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar, Yousaf was reconsidered and then he was appointed as the civil judge.

People on the social media congratulated the brother-sister duo and celebrated the gladsome news.
