Justice Abdul Nazeer, a Key Player in Ayodhya and Triple Talaq Verdicts, Appointed Governor of Andhra Pradesh

Former Supreme Court Judge, Justice Abdul Nazeer, has been appointed as the Governor of Andhra Pradesh, taking on a new role after a successful judicial career.

Justice Nazeer, who was appointed to the Supreme Court in 2017, was part of several landmark judgments, including the Ayodhya Ram temple case and the landmark judgment on triple talaq.

In the Ayodhya case, he was part of the five-judge constitution bench that delivered the verdict, which paved the way for the construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya.

The verdict, which was delivered in November 2019, was widely hailed as a balanced judgment that took into account the religious and cultural sentiments of both Hindu and Muslim communities.

Justice Nazeer was also part of the bench that heard the case of the constitutional validity of the practice of triple talaq. In August 2017, the Supreme Court declared the practice of instant triple talaq unconstitutional, thereby striking down a practice that was prevalent among Muslims in India for centuries.

The verdict was a major milestone in the fight for gender justice and equality and was widely welcomed by women’s rights activists across the country.

Justice Nazeer, who hails from the state of Karnataka, began his judicial career as a judge in the Karnataka High Court in 2003. He was later appointed as a judge in the Supreme Court of India in 2017. Throughout his career, he has been known for his impartiality and dedication to the rule of law.

As the Governor of Andhra Pradesh, Justice Nazeer is expected to bring his vast experience and knowledge to the table. He will play a crucial role in ensuring the smooth functioning of the state’s administration and will also serve as a bridge between the state government and the Centre.

In conclusion, Justice Abdul Nazeer’s appointment as the Governor of Andhra Pradesh is a testament to his hard work and dedication to the judicial system. With his vast experience and expertise, he is well-equipped to tackle the challenges that lie ahead and will undoubtedly play a significant role in shaping the future of the state.
