Rafia Qaseem Baig is Asia’s first female bomb disposal officer from Pakistan.

She belongs to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, a province of Pakistan.

Rafia joined police force about 8 years ago and now she is

the part of BDU.

Her inspiration came from a blast which happened near

sessions court.

Rafia belongs to an educated family.

She has done master’s twice which includes International Relations and Economics.

And now, she is on the verge of getting a degree in Law as well.

She was offered jobs from different firms but she

preferred police job over them.

Rafia learned about the types of different explosive gadgets

along with the methods to disarm them.

Talking about her profession, on a TV channel, she said that she likes

to do those kind of tasks which not everyone can dare to do.

She has to wear a special suite weighing about 75 kg, every time when needed, which,

in a way, is a reminder of how much responsibility she has on her shoulders, she added.

“Life and Death is in the hands of ALLAH. If HE has written life in my favor then even grenades will get molded into the flowers.”
