No house for Actor Emran Hashmi
July 31, 2009

Bollywood Actor Emran Hashmi is looking for a house in the posh Pali Hill but the housing society reportedly refused to give him a no-objection certificate even after he had paid the token amount of Rs 1 lakh.

He believes the housing society is discriminating against him because he is a Muslim. He has filed a complaint with the State Minorities' Commission, demanding action against society members.

Commission vice-chairman Abraham Mathai reported to the media that Hashmi had filed a complaint.

"We are sending summons to the society, asking for an explanation," Mathai said.
"My parents went to meet society members last week (for the NOC) along with the seller and the broker. Society members, however, told them they were busy and refused to meet them. I found it really offensive," said Hashmi.

"The seller, Suvarna, has now informed us that the society will not give us an NOC and it has blocked the sale. We have information that this has been done as they are discriminating against Muslims and will not allow any Muslim in the society." The society had mostly Hindus and a couple of Catholic families, Hashmi said.
Bollywood Actors like Shabana Azmi, Javed Akhtar and Aamir Khan had experienced the same in the past.
