Nibbana Housing Society which was at the receiving end of actor Emraan Hashmi's allegations of practicing "religious discrimination" has demanded an apology from the actor for levelling the "baseless allegations" which has caused them "immense damage".
Society Secretary Capt JP Chhetry told PTI that the actor was denied a NOC for flat ownership because he had not
followed the proper procedures and not because of his religion as alleged.
"The owner had leased his flat to a German national.
He had casually told us that after the lease term ends, he plans to sell his flat. He had not made a formal application
that he wishes to sell the flat to the actor. The mandatory police clearance along with necessary documents had not been
submitted to the society," said Chhetry.
He said that a meeting of the society residents was held today and it was decided that an apology will be
demanded from the actor for making allegations of religious profiling.
"We will not take this lying down and we are also taking legal opinion" he said adding that the society was yet to
receive the summons sent by the State Minorities Commission.
