Mother Teresa’s canonisation portends more conversions: VHP

New Delhi, August 28, 2016: Mother Teresa’s canonisation portends more conversions to Christianity, an issue that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should have considered before deciding to send a delegation to the Vatican, the VHP said on Sunday.

“The canonisation of Mother Teresa is an alarm bell that now there would be more conversions in India and more funds (for conversions) would be routed to India,” Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) International Joint General Secretary Surendra Jain said here.

He said granting of sainthood to a person based on miracles attributed to them was not “practical” in today’s times.

“Do you expect miracles to happen in this age,” he wondered.

Jain warned that with more conversions, there would be more unrest in the society.

He said Modi should have considered the issue before deciding to send an official Indian delegation to the canonisation ceremony at the Vatican.

“The issue of Mother Teresa’s services vis-a-vis religious conversions is not new. We have been raising it for years. I think the Prime Minister should have thought over it before he decided to send an official delegation to the Vatican,” Jain said.

An official Indian delegation led by External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj is scheduled to attend Mother Teresa’s canonisation ceremony at the Vatican on September 4.

On Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his ‘Mann Ki Baat’ radio address paid tributes to the late Catholic nun for her services to the poor of India, saying that Indians should be proud that Mother Teresa is being officially declared a saint.

The nun founded the Missionaries of Charity, a Roman Catholic religious congregation that runs hospices in India. She died in 1997.

    Must congratulate the PM for his gesture in sending the delegation which is correct. Being in a Democratic country, people, organizations has right to express what they feel. Just because somebody says something does not mean it is correct. Today much of India is educated and cultured and they can judge with their abilities. I read this sentence in my 6th Std in 1959 and I always believe what it says. Just because the dog barks does not mean the haven will fall !
    So do not bother just because somebody says something. Here I can quote Sir Winston Churchill who said may years ago ,which I heard few months ago If you go on throwing stones for every dog that barks on the way you will never reach your destination.
    Thank You

  2. I pray Mother Teresa on attaining The sainthood will with her zeal courage to assist the Indian willing people to accept the Christian (Catholic) population. I pray.

    I am so glad that the VHP is prophecying and endorsing what might happen! Who knows, some VHP members themselves might be enlightened to love Jesus and follow Him. Has the VHP done what Mother Teresa has done for the poorest of the poor? May God grant all Indians to live in peace and unity through the intercession of Mother Teresa.
