Woman in Mumbai denied flat for being a Muslim; approaches NHRC

Mumbai(ANI): In an another incident of religious discrimination, 25-year-old woman was denied flat in Mumbai for being Muslim.

Misbah Quadri was about to move in a 3-BHK apartment in Wadala, but she was denied a flat for being a Muslim, reported ANI.

Quadri claims that she was warned by the broker that the housing society did not accept Muslim tenants.

The broker reportedly told her that the builder, the owner and the broker ‘would not be legally responsible’ if she faced any harassment from neighbours because of her religion, and she would have to sign a “no-objection certificate” declaring that.

However, Quadri told broker that if he wants some living conditions, can be laid down, but the broker refused to listen.

Few days ago, a youth was denied a job for being Muslim.

Zishan Khan (22) had to face religious bias when his application to Hari Krishna Export Pvt Ltd was turned down. Khan, who lives in Kurla, had applied for a job, along with his friends, after completing his final semester exams on May 12.
