Pakistan’s first blind civil judge Yousuf Saleem has tied the knot.

Saleem changed Pakistan’s history when he challenged the Federal Civil Services system. He was rejected for the position of a civil judge despite being the topper because of his visual impairment.

Former chief justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar took notice of the issue and after presiding in Saleem’s favour, the 25-year-old took the oath to be sworn in as a civil judge at Punjab Judiciary Academy on June 26, 2018.


A gold medalist from Punjab University, Saleem hopes to be the Chief Justice of Pakistan one day.

Soon after the news spread, blessings and wishes began to pour in for the happy couple.

Meanwhile, some negativity was also there.
