Mother Teresa founded Missionaries of Charity’s application for renewal of a licence to receive funds from donors abroad was turned down by the Government of India (GOI). Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee faults the Centre for this act. It is good to know the true facts about Mother Teresa transformed from “Living Saint to Saint” in the shortest time in the history of the Popes elevating a Christian to Saint-hood.
Intrigued and surprised by the tributes paid to Mother Teresa and the speed with which she was getting beatified and canonised, Dr Aroup Chatterjee, a Kolkata-based doctor, researched her life and activities and found that she was not a saintly person and that her motives and actions for charity are primarily to convert the destitute, especially those in Kolkata to Christianity. His findings, including testimonies he gave before those who are beatifying and canonising her, are recorded in his book, Mother Teresa: The Untold Story, published in 2016 by Prakash Books India Pvt Ltd.
Mother Teresa not only accepted foreign monies from reputable sources but even from criminals, fraudsters and terrible evildoers. She even wrote to a Governor of a State in the United States to free a criminal from jail, the criminal who gave a huge donation to her. Convinced that the Saint-hood to be conferred on Mother Teresa was wrong, Dr Chatterjee appeared before the prescribed Board carrying out the beatification and canonisation procedure. His testimony against Mother Teresa’s canonisation is recorded in Chapter -14, From Living Saint To Saint.
Dr Aroup Chatterjee was born and brought up in Kolkata. He emigrated to the UK and worked as a physician in London. While in Kolkata, he read all the eulogies for Mother Teresa. When he went and lived in London, he was appalled at the Teresan mythology. He researched Mother Teresa and her activities for over 25 years. He is the world’s foremost authority on the late nun. He appeared numerous times on BBC and other world media to discuss this subject. It is my humble submission that those who are still believing in the legend of Mother Teresa and her charity should read this book, Mother Teresa: The Untold Story.
The monies coming from abroad to various Christian-founded and managed charitable institutions are mainly used for converting the beneficiaries of the charities. And the conversions are total fraud because the converted are instructed not to disclose the fact of conversion to any government record like the census. That is the reason for the percentage of Christians in India’s population from 1951 till today, as recorded in the census after the census, has been remaining at 2.3 per cent despite the humongous efforts and monies spent for evangelisation and conversion. In fact, in the two Telugu states, the fraud is too obvious. The percentage of Christians as recorded in the census is given in the table below.
Further, during the COVID pandemic, the Andhra Pradesh Government invited applications from priests working in places of worship. 29,841 pastors, 31,017 archakas and 7000 imams/Muezzins applied for this welfare payout. This shows that there are nearly as many pastors as archakas. It works out to one pastor for 37 Christians and one archaka for 3686 Hindus. The real population of Christians in AP seems to be 15 per cent–20 per cent; most MLAs, MPs, elected members of local bodies from constituencies reserved for SCs are converts to Christianity with fake SC Hindu caste certificates. The per capita spend in shelter homes for the destitute by Christian organisations in AP was found to be several times more than that in Government-run shelter homes. The inflated spend is to cover up the diversion of funds for conversion. In the light of these facts, the decision of the Centre not to renew the permission to Missionaries of Charity’s to receive foreign funds is right.
