Eurosa Arshid has been working at the West Bridgesford Fire Station in the United Kingdom for two years after wearing the hijab. Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue celebrates two years of her appointment as the first hijabi woman to make an outstanding contribution to national security.Arshid, a resident of Aspel, Australia, said he had no idea he was going to be the first hijabi firefighter in the UK.“I didn’t know about the matter when I was applying,” Arshid said. I found out about the job only after my job was confirmed.
‘Initially I didn’t know but later I was a bit shocked. But I always wanted to be a firefighter. I have been dreaming of this since my childhood. ‘
He added, ‘All the time I look at all work with equal vision. I am very proud that I have broken many barriers in society and opened up a new world. But I don’t think of myself as exceptional. Like everyone else, I am a normal person. ‘
‘Since joining the job, colleagues have helped me in many ways. I had a dream all the time. I always wanted to do something. I used to go to work every day and realize that I am contributing to save people’s lives. ‘
‘Once I get hired, I realize myself anew. I’m not just a woman. Rather a Muslim who practices his own faith. I am also the first hijabi woman in the UK to work as a firefighter. ‘
At first I had to face various challenges. Because at first I did not find a safe place to pray. So I talk to different colleagues for solutions. In the end I succeeded. But now we are trying to create new workplaces. So that people are inspired to get involved in new work and face the challenges of their lives.
Most religions speak of peace and humanity. That’s why everyone works together. Which is in line with the values of the Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service. It is important to make the best use of this common relationship to build inter-communal harmony.

To deal with the second wave of coronavirus infections, the government is temporarily imposing a one-week ‘strict ban in the form of a lockdown’. After a high-level meeting on Saturday, it was reported that a proposal with several recommendations in this regard was being sent to the Prime Minister. If the Prime Minister agrees, a notification may be issued on Sunday. And the ban will be effective from Monday.
Earlier, Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader said that a lockdown was being announced again to deal with the infection. Then State Minister for Public Administration Farhad Hossain also gave such a hint.
After that there was a great curiosity among the people as to what was going to happen. Like last time, all the holidays will be given, or something new will happen. Acquaintances from the media office, journalists and secretariat officials want to know the government’s decision by phone. But the final decision of the government was not known till the time of writing this report at 7.30 pm yesterday.
Speaking at a press conference at his official residence in Dhaka yesterday, Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader said, “The government has decided to lockdown across the country for a week from Monday due to increased coronavirus infection.” The details of what will be open and what will be closed will be known in the announcement of the government.
On the other hand, in a video message sent to the media from his Bailey Road home, State Minister for Public Administration Farhad Hossain said that only factories outside the emergency services will remain open. The workers will work according to the shift according to the hygiene rules.
Not a ‘lockdown’, but a ban: Although Corona’s appearance is worse this time than last time, high-ranking government officials are not considering a public holiday. For the time being, a proposal with recommendations for a strict ban is being sent to the Prime Minister.
