Girl Asked To Leave Mumbai House Within A Week Because She Is Muslim

A 25-year-old woman in Mumbai has alleged that she was asked to vacate a flat because she is a Muslim, reports Hindustan Times.

Misbah Quadri, who moved into a 3-BHK apartment at Sanghvi Heights in Wadala, was told by the broker that the housing society did not accept Muslim tenants a day before she was to shift. Quadri said:

“I have been in Mumbai for 5 and a half years. This is not the first time I have faced this issue. Sometimes brokers did not even show me houses. But this time, I was asked to leave the house within a week because I am a Muslim. I told the broker that if he wants, some living conditions can be laid down – like what I cannot cook in the house.”


The broker also asked her to sign a ‘no-objection certificate’ saying that she cannot hold anyone responsible in case she faces harassment for being a Muslim in the building. She moved in hoping things would be fine later but within a week she was asked to vacate the house, as it was ‘a policy’ of the company not to have Muslim tenants.

However, society supervisor Rajesh stated that they do allow Muslims to live in their flats and said that the broker should be questioned on the issue.

Quadri also approached the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) after she was thrown out of the apartment.
