Soon noted journalist Rana Ayyub retweeted the post and wrote, ” Muslims and Pets not allowed. This is one of the most posh addresses in Mumbai, Bandra. This is 20th century India. Remind me we are not a communal nation, tell me this is not apartheid ?”.
Responding to Rana Ayyub’s tweet, a Twitterati Nikhil wrote, “even if the owner agrees, the building won’t allow Muslims. Radicalisation in the Hindu society is so entrenched, it’ll take couple of generations to fix the problem. If anyone wants to fix the problem”.
