Since the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis, I wanted to find out how Bangladeshis in Britain have been coping with the lockdown. Although it's necessary for everyone to comply with self-isolation and remain two meters distance from others in public, many Bangladeshis are also worried about their family members. I am worried about my father who has been in hospital several times this year. His health problems are linked with breathing. He is also in his early 80s.
In April-May, Bengali Muslims in Britain prepare for Ramadan, a holy month under Islamic calendar. During this month they would fast, pray and gather in groups to celebrate such a festive occasion. Due to the lockdown and social isolation, it maybe extremely difficult for a lot of people to come together to appreciate the spiritual time. If many of these Muslims have stopped gathering - how are they coping in isolation? I want to find out from these British citizens.
I want to share these experiences through the mediums of videos, speeches, and other things that I can get hold of whilst I keep the social distancing rules as prescribed by the NHS and the government.
