A woman accused two Bangalore based landlords of discrimination on the basis of her religion who allegedly refused to rent out their premises to her family when they got know that she is a Muslim. Heena Rehman (name changed), the co-founder of an organisation, posted her experience on Facebook and Twitter where she accused two Bengaluru-based landlords of discrimination because of her religion. The post had gone viral, drawing support as well as criticism.
Heena had found those two homes matching her family's requirements on Nestaway, an online portal for house rental ads, approached their owners and they denied to rent out their premises to her. She took on Nestaway and asked: "What an irony that I am not finding a "house" in my own "home country," she wrote.
Nestaway, replied to Heena's tweet, regret what she had gone through and that the owners would no longer be associated with Nestaway in any manner and would like to help you move into a house of your preference.
