VHP’s Call to A.R.Rahman:”Hindu Society is Waiting”
The Vishwa Hindu Parishad gave a call to music maestro A.R.Rahman asking him to convert back to a Hindu. VHP Joint Secretary Surendra Jain said that this is the right time for Rahman to indoctrinate Hinduism into himself. It is known that a Sunni Muslim organization gave fatwa against Rahman for composing music for the film ‘Muhammad: The Messenger of God’ based on lifestory of Muhammed prophet. Surender Jain who spoke about this said that fatwa against Rahman is unfortunate. “The fatwa against Rahman is unfortunate and what is misfortunate is the language of revenge in it. He composed music for a film not on the basis of any religion. I will appeal to Rahman.. He should return, he should do Ghar-Wapsi. The Hindu society is waiting for its son”, said Surender Jain.
A.R.Rahman responded to the fatwa against him saying, “I am not a scholar of Islam. I follow the middle path and am part traditionalist and part rationalist. I live in the western and eastern worlds, and try to love all people for what they are, without judging them. I didn’t direct or produce the movie… I just did the music. My spiritual experiences working on the film are very personal, and I would prefer not to share these … My decision to compose the music for this film was made in good faith with no intention of causing offence”. VHP is strongly trying to influence Rahman convert back to Hinduism.
