Sajid Javid Is UK New Home Secretary
Sajid Javid Is UK New Home Secretary: Pakistani-origin cabinet member Sajid Javid MP has been appointed as the new home secretary of the United Kingdom by the British Prime Minister Theresa May. This is considered as the most important cabinet position after that of prime minister in UK. Sajid Javid is a British Conservative Party politician and former managing director at Deutsche Bank. He has been the Member of Parliament for Bromsgrove in Worcestershire since 2010.
Sajid Javid is the first British Muslim Pakistani to get this very crucial post. He was serving as the secretary of state for housing, communities and local government before getting this position.
Home Secretary Amber Rudd resigned due to the Windrush scandal over the treatment with long-term Caribbean immigrants who have wrongly been labeled illegal immigrants.
In his capacity as Britain’s Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government Sajid Javid addressed 23rd March event this year in UK and expressed his pride at the creation of Pakistan. He said that March 23rd reminds Pakistanis of the “celebration of March towards independence.”
Sajid stated that achieving this post means a lot to his families and friends, it means a lot to Pakistani people across the world including British Pakistanis who form one of the largest communities outside of Pakistan.
Sajid is known as a focused man, without any obvious enemies in his party, has robotic ability to repeat long-term economic plans, a man with influential admirers in the media and a powerful patron in George Osborne.
Sajid’s father Abdul moved to Britain in 1961 and started working in Rochdale. His father worked in a cotton mill in Rochdale and was nicknamed as “Mr Night and Day” because he worked day and night and round the week to make both ends meet. Sajid lived with his four brother and sisters. Now he is the father of four children himself and lives happily with them and his wife Laura.
Javid worked for Chase Manhattan Bank and for Deutsche Bank before joining politics. As part of the 2010 parliamentary intake, he was quickly made a member of the Work and Pensions Select Committee and his background in finance made him an obvious choice for a job under Chancellor George Osborne.
In 2012 he was appointed economic secretary to the Treasury within two years he became Culture Secretary.
He was the first member of Britain’s South Asian minority to be given a full-time post in the cabinet when he was appointed culture minister in 2014.
He remained in the European Union (EU) during the referendum campaign and reportedly made more than £20 million during his high-flying banking career, which took him round the globe.
In 2015, he was made Business Secretary and Theresa May gave him the job of Communities Secretary when she became Prime Minister the following year. Javid cites the late Conservative Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher as his political inspiration and has often hung a portrait of her in his ministerial office.
He is a passionate believer in the state of Israel and has spoken against attacks on Israel and in support of Israel model of governance.
Soon after taking charge of the Home Office, Sajid Javid has said that his most “urgent task” is to help the Windrush generation. He said he would review immigration policy to make sure it was fair and people were treated with dignity and respect.
