Mother Teresa was a noble soul, Please spare her: Arvind Kejriwal

New Delhi(web team): Bhagwat had made his comment while speaking at a function organised by NGO Apna Ghar in New Delhi. “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.

RSS and delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal responded to RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat’s claim that conversion to Christianity was the main objective behind Mother Teresa’s service to the poor. While RSS backed their senior leader, Kejriwal urged for Mother Teresa to spared.

I worked wid Mother Teresa for a few months at Nirmal Hriday ashram in Kolkata. She was a noble soul. Pl spare her.

Bhagwat had made his comment while speaking at a function organised by NGO Apna Ghar in New Delhi. “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.

“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.

Later, RSS said on its twitter handle that the media reported “wrongly” and Bhagwat had only replied to former BSF DG’s comments.

Media reporting wrongly. At Bharatpur Ex DG BSF said that Mother Teresa did Seva with motive of conversion.

The RSS official twitter account also quoted Bhagwat as saying, “To goad people to convert in the name of ‘seva’ is an affront to the service being done. Service has to be completely selfless and expecting absolutely nothing in return.

In reply Bhagavatji said, “let Mother Teresa know her motive for Seva, we do Seva without expecting any returns” Dr M Vaidya

Those who are the recipients of such selfless ‘seva’ may be thinking that they have seen their god in those who serve. Those who serve would be thinking that their life became blessed after getting an opportunity to serve the needy.”

When ‘seva’ is done nothing is expected in return expect the wellbeing of the affected. Dr Bhagwat @Bharatpur
