He was reacting to Mumbai Cricket Association passing a
resolution to bestow `Bharat Ratna` on Sachin Tendulkar.

"It is sad that today cricket is getting more importance
than science. I have no problem about Sachin being considered
for the award, but what about Bhabha? We must at least have
the courtesy to recognise the immense contribution made by
this luminary, posthumously," he said.
