Shafeek Subaida Hakkim and Divya DV, a married couple from Kerala who were in Bengaluru for some work, were refused a room at Olive Residency on Annipuram Main Road in Sudhama Nagar because he’s a Muslim and she’s a Hindu. Speaking to TNM, Shafeek says that the receptionist at the hotel refused to give them a room after he saw their ID cards.
The receptionist, for his part, had a strange justification for not allowing an interfaith couple to stay at the property.
When TNM contacted the hotel, the receptionist accepted that he was the person who refused a room to the couple. He also said that he refused to give them a room because the man was a Muslim and the woman was a Hindu.
