With Liz Truss taking over as the new Prime Minister of the United Kingdom who defeated the Indian-origin Rishi Sunak as leader of the Conservative party, she has appointed the Indian-born Suella Braverman the home minister.
Suella replaces yet another Indian-born Priti Patel. Patel was the Chancellor of the Exchequer (finance minister) in Boris Johnson's government.
Suella Braverman is a Buddhist. She regularly attends the London Buddhist Centre. She took her oath of office in the Parliament on 'Dhampad', a scripture of Lord Buddha's sayings.
According to the British weekly newspaper 'Eastern Eye', 42-year-old Suella was appointed Attorney General in Boris Johnson's administration a year ago.
Earlier, she was serving as the Principal Legal Adviser to the Government Suella Braverman worked as a lawyer before being elected as a Member of Parliament in 2015.
According to another British weekly newspaper 'The Week', barrister Suyla Braverman was appointed as the new UK Home Secretary on Tuesday, replacing her predecessor Priti Patel, who too is of Indian origin.
Her nomination to this position in his cabinet shows the faith Truss has in her.
Suella's Hindu mother Uma hails from the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu and her Christian father Christy Fernandes hails from the western state of Goa. She received her primary education at Heathfield School in London and then graduated from Queen's College and studied law at Cambridge. He then completed a Master's degree in European and French Law from Panthéon-Sorbonne University.
She married Rael Braverman in 2018 and they have two children.
Suella is a practicing Buddhist who regularly attends a Buddhist center in London. She took his oath of office in Parliament on Dharmapada, a religious book based on the sayings of Lord Buddha. He began his political career by contesting the general election for Leicester East in 2005 and became the Member of Parliament for Fareham in May 2015.
Then she was re-elected Member of Parliament in 2017 and 2019.
According to Eastern Eye, Suella Braverman takes over the reins of the Home Department at a time when the British government is embroiled in a legal battle over its plan to deport migrants crossing the English Channel illegally to Rwanda.
Finding a solution to the thorny political issue, which eventually cost Suella's predecessor Priti Patel her position, will be her top priority.
But they also face a fierce legal battle that is ongoing in European courts. European courts have so far barred London from deporting migrants. Suella's parents were originally from India and immigrated to the UK from Kenya and Mauritius in the 1960s.
After Boris Johnson was ousted from power, Suella was one of the frontrunners for the post of Prime Minister.
