AR Rahman Was Born A Hindu!
March 28, 2016
AR Rahman, The Mozart Of Madras was born a Hindu and his Birth Name was AS Dileep Kumar. However, he converted to Islam later. In an interview to Scroll he said, “I was reminded of what Jesus Christ, Peace be upon Him, once said: “I wish that you were cold and hot. So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth.”
What I understood by His words was that it is better to choose one path. The Sufi path spiritually lifted both my mother and me, and we felt it was the best path for us, so we embraced Sufi Islam.“
