    BHARATPUR: Conversion to Christianity was the main objective behind Mother Teresa's service to the poor, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat said on Monday.

    "Mother Teresa's service would have been good. But it used to have one objective, to convert the person, who was being served, into a Christian," he said while speaking at a function organized by NGO Apna Ghar near here.

    "The question is not about conversion but if this (conversion) is done in the name of service, then that service gets devalued," he said.

    "But here (at the NGO), the objective is purely service of poor and helpless people," added Bhagwat.

    The RSS chief was addressing a function in village Bajhera, near 8km from here, where he inaugurated "mahila sadan" and "sishu bal grah" in the NGO for helpless women and children.

    Don't always agree with Hitchens, but he had flair and he was blunt: The fanatic, fraudulent Mother Teresa.

    Lots of videos on this are out on YT too. Credit to whoever said it, these people love poverty, not the poor.

    Anyway, it seems yet another instance of MSM twisting/misreporting and likely yet another instance when BJP will sit back and take it. This is getting pathetic. :tsk:

    Well, Mother Teresa was only doing what the Bible commands. One cannot fault her for doing so.

    Practically analysing, it is a fact that Conversion is part of the duty of all Christians, especially the Priest, as per the exhortation in the Bible.

    Therefore, Mother Teresa was doing the duty of a Christian.

    Yes, charity work does involve having an eye on doing the duty expected of a Christian and therefore Mother Teresa was doing the same.

    The question of whether charity was solely motivated by the duty to convert is a moral question and that can only be answered by the person as to whether it was right or wrong.

    Mother Teresa did good work, no doubt, but then personally I feel that one should not go overboard and glorify the deeds done since missionaries are not supposed to gloat over their charitable activity and instead do it with total humility at their command.

    I will explain the problem if you really know that it was the DIG that said that about Mother Teresa.

    Can't trust a tweet by rss, they might have tried to defend themselves before it snowballs into another controversy. So can't say for sure

    This is an example of their stupidity..... what was the need to raise the mother teresa issue after so many years of her passing. Why did they not raise these concerns when she was given the Nobel prize or when she was beatified. They should have quietly done their charity work and shut up.

    And if it is the DIG that said that and it is not a view of the RSS, they should distance themselves from him and stop defending this viewpoint of mother teresa.

    Wake up, my friend.
    Why do you trust Mother terissa?
    She was creation made by west. Another sathyardhi.

    You will learn how much you had been bullied by the westards and still bullied by them, If you open your eyes.

    Mother Teressa's charity in converting even the most unfortunate, was about as honest as that of Kejriwal when Kejri used to bombard us on Radio with his typical drivel - I was in Income Tax, I could have made a lot of money, but I came to take up the onerous task of being your Messiah.

    Birds of a feather.

    I also do a lot of work which does not directly benefit me and I can easily avoid. So what. Does that entitle me to a CM ki khursi.
