First American Muslim Federal Judge


President Obama nominated Abid Riaz Qureshi for the federal bench late Tuesday, saying, “I am confident he will serve the American people with integrity and a steadfast commitment to justice.”


“A judiciary that reflects the rich diversity of our nation helps ensure the fair and just administration of the law, and it is
vital for American Muslims to be included,” said Farhana Khera, executive director of Muslim Advocates. “Mr. Qureshi’s profound commitment to the rule of law and justice for people of all backgrounds makes him an exceptional nominee.”
