Surat: Yasmin Sajid Sheikh, is all set to become the first senior policewoman from her community in Hindu dominant Gujarat.

The 32-year-old schoolteacher cleared the Gujarat State Public Commission Services exam recently, and will now join the State police force as a Deputy Superintendent of Police.

Yasmin said her husband backed her decision to join the forces.

"I was really happy and I do not have words to explain that. I immediately called my father, my mother, and my husband and gave them the good news", she said.


"I was really anxious about the result and I called my father and said that I am really tense", she added.


"I requested him to go to the mosque and pray for me. Even my husband prayed for me and is really happy," she said.


The daughter of a retired government primary schoolteacher, Yasmin is a post-graduate in Hindi and Gujarati, and has two gold medals to her credit.


Yasmin's father said his daughter has become a role model for other girls in the Muslim community.

"We are really happy that our daughter has done it. I wish she would help the country, our community. We want her to give an idea to the Muslim community that girls can also study. Today, it's all about education," said Riyaz Mohammad Sheikh, Father of Yasmin Sajid Sheikh.

Sheikh wanted to become a doctor. But, the poor economic condition of her parents did not permit her to study medicine.
