Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer: Did Nehru Offer the Father of the Atomic Bomb Indian Citizenship? – UnlistedNews

With the premiere of Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer, the father of the atomic bomb has once again been the subject of debate among all. Directed by British-American filmmaker Christopher Edward Nolan, the film is based on a book co-written by Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin, titled American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J Robert Oppenheimer.

After the controversial downfall of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the father of the atomic bomb, Prime Minister Nehru offered him Indian citizenship. According to a report in The Unlisted News, Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru offered Indian citizenship to Julius Robert Oppenheimer, the father of the atomic bomb, in 1954 after his own country rejected the famous American physicist. But she did not consider the offer.

But I don’t think Oppenheimer seriously considered the offer because he was a deeply patriotic American,” Kai Bird, co-author of the book American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J Robert Oppenheimer, told the Unlisted News in an interview.

Bird said nine years after being celebrated as America’s greatest scientist, Oppenheimer was struck down in “terrible kangaroo court” and stripped of his security clearance in a virtual security hearing. “He became the main victim of the McCarthy witch hunt,” he said, referring to the term coined to describe Republican Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy’s practice of publicly accusing government employees of disloyalty and using dubious methods to prosecute them when the government was countering communism in the US.

About Oppenheimer, the father of the atomic bomb

After playing a pivotal role in the “Manhattan Project” which developed the world’s first atomic bomb, which was dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, in August 1945, Oppenheimer strongly advocated anti-war and nuclear reduction policies.

He believed that the fundamental assumptions of US defense policy at the time were entwined with “ignorance and folly”. Because of the public rhetoric against nuclear weapons, he fell out with the American establishment at the time during the Cold War era.

In India, Oppenheimer is known for reciting scriptures from the Bhagavad Gita on the day the major nuclear test was carried out, July 16, 1945. Shortly after the top-secret test was carried out, he recited: “I have now become Death, the Destroyer of Worlds.”

After the United States won World War II, Oppenheimer warned his compatriots of the dangers of limiting America’s reliance on nuclear weapons. However, the US government questioned his loyalty and put him on trial, an incident that defined his life and inspired Nolan’s Hollywood blockbuster.
