New Delhi, Aug 1 (IANS) The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Saturday criticised film star Emraan Hashmi, who has been denied a residence in a Mumbai colony, and said he was wrong in projecting his personal grievance as that of all Muslims.

'One actor is trying to associate his personal issue with a community. This will aggravate the distrust within society towards the minority community instead of creating sympathy for them,' BJP vice president Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said.

He also said that by 'blackmailing' society in the name of minority community some people were trying to break the religious harmony of Indian society.

Hashmi Friday accused a Mumbai housing society of refusing him permission to buy a flat because he is Muslim. Several Bollywood personalities have made similar complaints in the past.

    I think he's saying that because other bollywood stars that were all Muslim have been denied a house and the place where Emraan wanted to buy a house consisted of all Hindu's so I don't blame him for thinking that way/
