Wasn’t allowed to rent flat because I am Muslim: Blind DU teacher
A visually impaired Delhi University teacher has alleged she was prevented from moving into rented accommodation after the landlord found out she is a Muslim.
In a video posted on YouTube, 30-year-old Reem Shamsudeen from Kerala asked Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal to look into the matter and ensure that people do not face such discrimination because of their faith.
Shamsudeen, an assistant professor of English in a college affiliated to Delhi University, said she had paid in advance so she and her mother could move into the rented flat after the summer vacation.
When she arrived at the flat with her luggage, the landlord refused to give Shamsudeen the key, saying she could not rent the flat to a Muslim. Shamsudeen did not provide details about the location of the flat or the landlord in the video
