Emraan magnifying personal problems: BJP

Mumbai: In a new twist to the episode of alleged religious profiling involving Emran Hashmi, a police complaint has been filed against the actor, who had claimed that he was denied a house because he was a Muslim, accusing him of promoting enmity between different communities.


The complaint, filed by a social activist and the executive member of National Youth Committee of BJP Sanjay Bedia with D. B. Marg police station, has accused Hashmi and noted filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt of various offences under IPC, said Bedia's lawyer Ketan Mehta.


The development came while Mumbai Police are still investigating Hashmi's complaint of alleged religious discrimination against Nibbana Co-Operative Housing Society in Bandra's posh Pali Hill.


The written complaint against Hashmi was lodged by Sanjay Bedia with the D.B. Marg police station in south Mumbai Sunday, an official said.


Bedia in his letter to police said that Hashmi and Bhatt are trying to create tensions between communities. He sought a public apology from the two.


In a related development, M.D. Suvarna, the owner of the flat which Hashmi was planning to purchase, suddenly withdrew his offer Saturday evening.


He said that now he has cancelled his plans to sell the flat since his son, residing in Canada wanted to keep the property.


"My flat is no more in the market," he told reporters.


Earlier, Hashmi had complained to the Maharashtra Minorities Commission (MMC) vice-chairman Abraham Mathai about "religious bias" on the part of the housing society in refusing to issue to him a no-objection certificate (NoC) to purchase the flat.


Following this, Minister of State for Home M.A. Naseem Khan ordered Mumbai Joint Police Commissioner Rakesh Maria to inquire into Hashmi's allegations.

Why Muslims, nobody wants to rent out a house, to the policemen and lawyers also. This has been my experience also and some lawyer friends, including Hindus have confirmed it. Answer is to do well and buy your own house, as i had to after my retirement.
