Beevi pays for Amma

It was Amma's turn to play the game after Krunanidhi's long innings, but the price was paid by one of the land's finest women, Tamil Nadu Governor Fathima Beevi for her refusal to toe the line of the Centre. The Vajpayee Government clearly expected a "favourable" report - slamming the Jayalalitha Government for the arrests last week in Chennai. Governor Fathima Beevi, in her report, justified the police action in Chennai, which was clearly not to the liking of the Vajpayee Government. Before Vajpayee government could sack her, she sent in her resignation to President K R Naryanan. The Governor had stated the facts, that the two union ministers were arrested since they had obstructed the police officials from discharging their duties when they went to arrest Karunanidhi.

Fathima Beevi, 74, has many firsts to her credit – the first woman judge of the Supreme Court and the first Muslim woman judge of any apex court in the world. Beevi made to the top in the legal field from Kerala’s backwaters without having any political godfather. When she was made a Supreme Court judge in 1989, Rajiv Gandhi was the Prime Minister. The Deve Gowda government made her the Tamil Nadu governor in January 1997.

In between, she has been a member of the National Human Rights Commission and the chairperson of the Kerala state commission for backward classes.

Hailing from Pathanamthitta district, she started her legal career in the courts of Kollam. After holding several high positions in the legal field, she was appointed a judge of the Kerala High court in 1987.

A champion of human rights and women’s causes, she is dedicated to promoting education among the underprivileged in the country. There are speculations that Fathima Beevi will be accommodated as a Rajya Sabha member.
