Sir Shah Mohammad Sulaiman


AS chief justice of the High Court at Allahabad for several years and as vice–chancellor of the Aligarh Muslim University over a considerable period, Sir Shah Sulaiman was a well–known public figure in India. During the last few years of his life he held the distinguished position of one of the three judges of the newly established Federal Court at Delhi. The news of his death early this year at the age of fifty–five came as an unpleasant surprise to his many friends and admirers, and elicited numerous well–merited tributes to his personality and career.
