Is being a Hindu to be ashamed of ? : Nambi Narayanan, Fmr ISRO Scientist

Nambi Narayanan, Former ISRO Scientist

New Delhi – I am a Hindu and I am not ashamed to say so. Is to be a Hindu a sin ?, asked former scientist of Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Nambi Narayanan in an interview. This video is going viral in media.  A film ‘Rocketry: The Nambi Effect’ based on the life of Nambi Narayanan has been released. In this film he is shown performing ritualistic worship. Seeing this critics have asked this question to which Nambi Narayanan had responded saying, ‘I am a Hindu and the film has shown me as one; they could not show me as Muslim or Christian, he had added.

Nambi Narayanan – ‘Is it a sin to be a Brahmin ?’

Critics of this film ‘Rocketry: The Nambi Effect’ are commenting, ‘Narayanan is a Brahmin. Upon this Nambi Narayanan said that he was not a Brahmin and if he was a Brahmin, what is there to object about ? Are you going to kill them ? Would they consider him as inferior ? So many Brahmins have laid their life for the country. I can give you their list. You are unnecessarily making an issue of it.’

Will you call me a communist ?

PM Narendra Modi and Kerala’s CM Pinarayi Vijayan support me, he said. Are you going take me as a communist ? People take Modi as BJP man. This has been imprinted on people’s mind.

Editorial perspective

It is shameful for Hindus that a Hindu individual needs to ask such a question.
