Visually-impaired woman denied flat in Delhi for being Muslim

Visually-impaired woman denied flat in Delhi for being Muslim

New Delhi: Yet another incidence of discrimination, a 30-year-old visually-impaired woman from Kerala has alleged that she was denied a rented house in Delhi for being a Muslim.

Reem Shamsudeen, who is an assistant professor in a college affiliated to Delhi University, claimed that the owner denied her the rented house just because she was a Muslim.

“I had paid the advance amount to the owner. I was refused to move in the apartment just a few hours before I was about to,” she said.

“It’s really a shame for such discrimination to occur in a city like Delhi where thousands of people come in search of education and jobs,” Reem told Madhyamam Daily.

“The incident was shocking considering the cosmopolitan and metropolitan nature of Delhi,” she said.

In a short video uploaded on the YouTube she urged Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to look into the matter.
