Can I still be a Hindu, if I do not believe in any form of rituals or prayers to god?

Can I still be a Hindu if I have no knowledge of Vedic scriptures and Sanskrit?

So , basically my point is did I become a Hindu just because my parents are Hindu?

Note: I do not follow any Abrahamic faith.

I think the only requirement is that you shouldn't belong to a non-Indian religion (that includes Hare Krishnas). (although the supreme Ramakrishna Paramahamsa did meditate on Jesus and Allah and obtained their vision). Sikhism,Jainism, Indian Buddhism,Zoroastrianism are all allowed. You can be a Hindu atheist as long as something Hindus do around you appeals to you such as temple worship, prayer etc.
