MUMBAI: Not many days ago, a youth from Mumbai was denied a job in a leading export company for being a ‘Muslim’ and practicing ‘Islam’.  A fresh incident has been reported on Wednesday where a 25-year-old Muslim girl Misbah Qadri has been bluntly denied a flat in the financial capital of India due to her religion.

While her flat-mates did get a house, Qadri claimed that she was soon after forced to sign a bond claiming she would have no objection to any hate crime because of her religion. 

However, she was later threatened by the broker, who asked her to vacate the house, else she will be taken to the cops. 

“I have been forcefully asked to vacate the house only because I am a Muslim. Even in the plush areas and societies of this city, where I am ready to pay the desired amount, I am given the worst plot,” she said while speaking to NewsX.

She further added that she is often judged for her attire, which is a ‘common practice in Gujarat’. “I earlier had apprehensions with this behavior of people here and I was ignoring it. But now, I have decided that I will not let it go and raise my voice against this racial discrimination,” added Qadri.

Religious Discrimination

Only when we can actually get rid of these kind of biases which we all know are widespread can we say we are progressing. Progress is not merely 8 pc growth rate, but caring for the minorities, and the poor.

Muslim girl stay in a flat

There is a society in nagpur called karimabaad society, byramji town,nagpur4400013 which allows only Muslims to stay . Why don't you show that. There are many such in Nagpur. It's ridiculous you show such things on national news Only for minority appeasement. I dare you show these places

Who is responsible? Haveany muslim group condemned muslim extremism? when the majority worships cow, did the community voluntarily cooperate and fall in alingnment?

why is she making such big

why is she making such big issue? its very common here in hyderabad muslims give ads "only for Muslims" and hindus "only hindus". its because of the comfort they feel in being with each other of their own. job ads for only muslims are given why make such issue about it? if one says its a muslim country then where is hindu country? what is wrong in it? lot of hindus are vegetarians and their heart may churn when a goat is sacrificed in halal way.

if i have a bread and i share

if i have a bread and i share it with 2 people it quenches our hunger. but same thing i share with 5 ppl then? each family should decide its economic capacity and try to grow by making itself educated and find good job and develop in life. why cant we have uniformity of education and jobs which will make person good for society and himself too instead of misleading in other issues.


i have seen most of the time a board reading ..To let for Muslims only...in patancheru..Telangana

religious discrimination and Islam

With ISIS news on TV, newspapers exposing real Islam only fools will want Muslims are neighbour. May be Boharies and Aga Khan followers are exceptions. Fake socialism and fake humanity and fake equality is worst than nuclear bomb for India. When will our intelligent and caring media turn their mikes and cameras towards the hapless Hindus wanting to return to their ancestral homes in Kashmir but can not because the Muslims won't let them in.
