Dr. Reem Shamsudeen, an assistant professor in one of Delhi University’s college’s, was denied accommodation in Delhi because of her religion. A partially blind woman who recently moved to Delhi after finishing her PhD Degree in English from English & Foreign Languages University, Hyderabad.
Dr. Reem’s video message to Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal brings to light the discrimination people from outside Delhi face when looking for accommodation in the so called cosmopolitan city. A purely social media driven effort; her attempt to reach the CM has worked as she received intimation from the CM office on Thursday, 23rd July, night. According to a source close to Dr. Reem Shamsudeen, the CM office inquired about her well-being and safety and has promised to look into the issue.
