For generations of Hindus, ‘Mother’ Teresa has been drilled into our minds as the epitome of compassion and charity. Government schools have paintings of her alongside Bharatiya role models. Even some practising Hindus forget their own saints & tradition of sewa when it comes to singing paeans to the Catholic ‘saint’ from Albania.
Today, as the establishment media has flooded us with articles eulogising Teresa, a Nobel Peace Prize winner “for work undertaken in the struggle to overcome poverty and distress”, the unsavoury truth about this missionary can be learnt through a short video or a long-form article, whichever suits the reader.
Hindus must quit using Teresa as an example for exemplary service. Utkrishta Seva is one that is Nishkamya, done with expectation of any reward, especially, the CONVERSION of the one who is helped. #TeresaISNotMyMother pic.twitter.com/UzNL0QTvWG
