‘Learned From Failures’
D A RASHID
Srinagar, Aug 16: The newly appointed judges by the J&K High Court recently attribute their success to “hard work, professional experience and support extended to them by parents, family members and well wishers.”
The J&K High Court a few days back appointed nine district judges including four who cracked the Higher Judicial Examination from Kashmir. These include Naseer Ahmad Dar, Tasleem Arif, Muhammad Altaf Khan and Shazia Tabasum. Five out of nine judges have been selected from Jammu region. They also include two among the three toppers in the list.
Hailing from Jagarpora Kupwara, 36-year-old Naseer Ahmad Dar is an LLB pass-out from Symbiosis Law College Pune. He pursued his five year Law course from 1998 to 2003. Naseer practiced as lawyer at the District Court Kupwara for 10 years before appearing in the examination. He qualified the Higher Judicial Examination in his first attempt.
Earlier he had appeared in KCS judicial examination but could not make it to final selection after qualifying for interview.
He believes that he has achieved the goal by virtue of his “intelligence, professional experience, and support extended to him by parents, family members and well wishers.” Dar has rich literary background and achieved the distinction to qualify the prestigious exam from Kupwara district after justice (Rtd.) Bashir Ahmad Kirmani.
Tasleem Arif is son of a shopkeeper Ghulam Nabi Ganie of Beerwah who completed his LLB from Kashmir University in 2003. He started his practice as an advocate at district court Budgam in 2003. He also practiced at district court Srinagar and High Court.
Arif passed his secondary school examination from Mazhr-ul-Higher Secondary School Beerwah in first division. He passed his 12th class examination from GHSS, Berwah and eventually graduated from Gandhi Memorial College Srinagar in non-medical stream.
Arif believes that whatever he has achieved is “by the grace of God, family support and the hard work he put in to crack the examination.”
Muhammad Altaf Khan son of Abdul Rashid Khan hails from downtown Srinagar. He graduated in science from Kashmir University. He did his LLB from ILF Law College Pune in 2003. Son of a retired government official, Khan appeared for the first time in Higher Judicial Examination.
Daughter of a retired school master, Shazia Tabasum of Wagoora Baramulla had her Schooling at St Joseph’s Baramulla. Shazia did her B.Sc from Degree College Baramulla. She completed her LLB from Kashmir University in 2001. She started practice in district court Baramulla in 2001. She had earlier appeared in KCS judicial but could not figure in the final selection list after qualifying for the interview.
Haqnawaz Zargar, who clinched the second position, hails from Bhaderwah area of Doda district. Born in 1975 at Masjid Mohalla, Bhaderwah, Zargar is son of late Shamas-ud-Din Zargar who was working as clerk with a renowned lawyer of Jammu, Jaswant Singh Kotwal.
Having completed his schooling from Government Ranbhir Higher Secondary School Jammu, Zargar did his graduation in 1997 from GGM Science College Jammu and joined Department of Law at Jammu University.
He said the main guiding force for his success was his mother and brother, Showkat Ali, who supported him after the death of their father. Earlier Zargar had appeared in the examinations- KCS (judicial) and Reader High Court but each time he failed to get it through in interviews.
“However, the failures kept me moving and I never lost my faith in Almighty and in myself,” he said adding, “I learned from my failures and here I am today”.
Tahir Khursheed Raina made it at number three in the list. Being the first ever from Rajouri district to have qualified the Higher Judicial Services examination, Raina topped the written examination but was pushed at number three spot in the final list. Born in 1972 at Thanamandi village of Rajouri district, Raina completed his B.Sc in 1993 from Government Degree College Rajouri and also did his LLB from Aligarh Muslim University in 1997.
Son of a renowned educationist, poet and writer of Rajouri, Khursheed Bismil, Tahir remained secretary of Law Society of Aligarh Muslim University. He immediately joined Bar Association Jammu and started practicing at Jammu.
