Mumbai slum demolition

Celebrity gossip: Slumdog Millionaire

On Thursday (May 14), Slumdog Millionaire’s little guy Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail had a very tough night as city workers in Mumbai bulldozed the home of the child star, along with 30 other small homes as part of the demolition of shanties in Mumbai slum. According to reports:

Azhar was asleep when a cop woke him up and told him to get out of his home. Later, his house and others around it were all destroyed.

The event happened Thursday morning when cops and city workers came as part of the “slum demolition drive,” which is common in India. Reports say that India does it to “keep crowding under control.”

Azhar explained that, “A police officer took a bamboo stick to him me, and I was frightened.”

Azhar’s mother has lived in the town for over 15 years and explained that she still had no legal right to her land.

“They didn’t give prior notice. We didn’t even get a chance to take out our belongings. I don’t know what I am going to do,” Azhar’s mother told during this hard time.

Bombay Municipal Corporations claim that they only demolished illegally built shanties and ones that were not legally owned. It was all part of a “pre-monsoon demolition drive.”

Continuing about the incident, they said, “They were removed. That is the principle,” also mentioning that those who have lived their longer than 15 years will be relocated into government-built housing.”
