Future of Covid from Bangladeshi & other minority communities public meeting a success! (recorded)


What a lovely group of passionate people attended the 7th Zoom public meeting organised by BritBanglaCovid, since beginning of the pandemic, on 9th January at 3pm when we could easily have left everything for a day of sunshine!

As usual, we covered Covid-19 in a very intelligent way and for which I am so grateful to my panelists: Professor Patrick Vernon OBE FrHistS, Rokhsana Fiaz (Mayor of Newham) Chris TangRachel BlakeShirina Ali and others. We have covered from health, community, local authority, and most importantly, from the perspective of structural inequality that had already existed in our community when it comes to the question of Bangladeshis and other minority communities in London.


It was such a pleasure to hear from everyone. There would not have been BritBanglaCovid 

without your support and belief in BritBanglaCovid!

Thank you for being part of  BritBanglaCovid world!

Bangla Britain Covid Report Launched 2020

BritBanglaCovid has created this report to analyse the plight of  Bangladeshis living in Britain. This community has experienced tragedies and unique difficulties due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the likes of which are unprecedented within current living generations.   BritBanglCovid believes that this community needs protection by providing sufficient support and resources in its culture and language to prevent further isolation. Having explored the community through individual anecdotes via interviews and a survey, BritBanglaCovid was able to produce this report to protect the wellbeing of Bangladeshis in Britain. RECOMMENDATIONS: 1. Faster intervention by authorities in the language affected by minority communities to save lives.  2. Investment by authorities on specific language programmes to support vulnerable and excluded communities (beyond written word) such as use of spoken word voice recordings, telephone and face to face conversations because many Bangladeshis have no formal

During pandemic mother spreads message of hope & paradise after life through jewellery design in memory of dead son

In memory of her dead son, Hasina Momtaz  spreads the message of  hope and paradise  after life through jewellery design to connect with Muslim community during pandemic. Early life in London Hasina came to the UK in the mid 1970s. She settled in Croydon, south London, from Bangladesh. She could not speak a word of English and was being bullied at school. ‘I remember nobody wanted to be my friend and the teacher assigned somebody to be my friend to look after me and make sure I was okay.’ Although she made south London her home, there was something unsettling for Hasina as a teenanger. ‘So   from the age of that 16, 17, I almost felt like I was on borrowed time because the school that I was at there were three or four Bangladeshi girls who all got taken out of school at the age of 16 and ...actually shipped back home… and married off there against their will.’ She confessed that she also felt the pressure from her father to get married. ‘I was determined that at least I was going to go
