New Delhi: Expressing disappointment with RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat’s comments on Mother Teresa, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said that she should be spared from such controversy.
In a tweet on Tuesday morning, Kejriwal said, “I worked with Mother Teresa for a few months at Nirmal Hriday ashram in Kolkata. She was a noble soul. Pls spare her.”
Earlier, on Monday Bhagwat said that conversion to Christianity was the main objective behind Mother Teresa’s service to the poor.
“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 organised by an NGO.
“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 8 kms from here, where he inaugurated ‘Mahila Sadan’ and ‘Sishu Bal Grah’ in the NGO for helpless women and children.
