MR. Budruddin Tyabji

Mr. Justice Badruddin Tyabji, Bar-at-Law : Was the first Indian barrister Judge of Bombay High Court and sat almost exclusively on the Original Side. He was the first Indian Barrister to practice on the Original Side, which before him was exclusively in the hands of English barristers. He made his mark as a very able and forceful advocate. He raised to the Bench in 1895 and proved to be strong, hard-headed and independent Judge. The most notable case, which he decided was that known as Kessowji Issur v, G.I.P. Railway Co., in which he delivered a very sound and most careful judgment. He had the distinction of being the first Muslim President of the Indian National Congress. He suddenly died in England in 1906.
