Former Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) scientist Nambi Narayanan has opened up regarding the criticism from reviewers who targeted his Hindu identity shown in the movie ‘Rocketry: The Nambi Effect’, based on his life.
A video has gone viral on social media where Nambi Narayanan can be seen explaining his point and asking if it was a sin to be a Hindu.
“It is funny sometimes. You know somebody wrote a review saying that Nambi Narayanan is shown as Hindu. Nambi Narayanan is doing some Utsavam, reciting Suprabhatam, this, that, and all kinds of things. He is a ‘Brahmin’. He is a Hindu. Hindutva is being shown. I just wanted to ask you, I am a Hindu. I mean I have no shame in saying that. Is it a sin to be a Hindu?” said Nambi in the video.
“Is it a sin to be a Brahmin? I am not a Brahmin, that is a different question. Is it a sin? If there is a Brahmin fellow, you will just cut him short. There are so many Brahmins, who have given their lives for this country. Not just one. I can give you a list. So the point I am making is we are unnecessarily colouring the issue.”
