Shocking! Eijaz Khan is denied a rented accommodation due to his religion

Actor Eijaz Khan, best known for his roles in the ‘Tanu Weds Manu‘ franchise has been facing a tough time finding himself a house on rent. It would be tough to believe but the actor has been struggling since the past eight months to find a place on rent in Bandra. The reason? His Muslim religion and his pet dogs.

The actor opened up on the same with a leading daily as he said, “I want to move out of my current Apartment because it reminds me of my past, and has become soulless. Also, my dogs have developed arthritis and it’s painful for them to go up and down three floors for their walk. Moreover, the owner wants to sell it off, too. I have tried every nook and corner of Bandra, but in vain. While members of my community don’t want to rent out their flats to me because I have two dogs, Hindus and Christians refuse because I am a Muslim.”

He further adds, “I keep assuring people that no parties will be held at my place. In fact, I have hosted just one get-together at my current apartment in the past six months. The saddest part is, house owners don’t even agree to meet me. There is no broker who I have not approached. They just inform me that the deal has fallen through either because of my pets or my community. I am tired of it now. I don’t want to move out of Bandra because I have been a Bandra boy and have a social circle here.”

It’s extremely sad to deny a person a house just because of his religion and beliefs, but our society functions with certain pre-conceived notions and it’s going to be a long way before the feudal mindset of people changes. We hope that Eijaz Khan finds a new place pretty soon.
