A just ruler and a brave kazi story : Giashuddin Azam Shah was the ruler of Bengal. He was a kind and just ruler. He was very much fond of archery . One day when he was practicing archery, all on a sudden his arrow missed its target and pierced into the breast of a young boy who died instantly. The boy was the son of a widow . She went to the Kazi and prayed for justice. The Kazi was a courageous judge of the time. He never feared anybody in discharging his duties properly. Giashuddin Azam Shah was summoned to appear before the Kazi. All the well wishers of the kazi and even the employees of his office got frightened about his fate. They also requested him to change his decision. But the kazi was determined to ensure justice.
However, Giashuddin Aram Shah appeared before the court of the kazi and admitted his guilt. The Kazi ordered him to pay full compensation to the widow. Giashuddin Azam Shah readily complied with the Kazi’s order and paid the fine. While leaving the court he drew his sword and said to the Kazi,” If today you failed to discharge your duties as a judge out of fear of me, I would have punished you with this sword.” Then the Kazi got down of his seat and said to the ruler,” If you disobeyed my verdict, I would have punished you with my cane .” In fact, the judiciary of the then Bengal was free and fair. At the same time, the rulers of the land were also just and noble.
