Somebody stated it was chapter 11, verse 32, which actually says ‘kaal-asmi’, which suggests ‘I’m time, destroyer of the world’. So, his translation itself is flawed. It’s not ‘I’m loss of life’. It’s time, time is the destroyer of the world,” he advised an Indian publication.
He added, “For a scientist, if he has used this sentence… And I’ve seen that video additionally of his, the place he retains saying, ‘I’m loss of life, I’m loss of life’. It is vitally clearly, ‘I’m time’. ‘Kaal’ means ‘time’. That’s what he’s saying, however after all, he will get excited as a result of he’s seeing loss of life and destruction at an enormous scale, and he’s clearly looking for some form of a religious background… I feel he was on the lookout for some solace, and he discovered this verse very dramatic.”
