Mamata accuses BJP of maligning Missionaries of Charity


Kolkata, Jul 12 (IANS): West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of making "malicious attempts to malign" the Mother Teresa-founded Missionaries of Charity (MOC).

"Mother Teresa herself set up Missionaries of Charity. And now they are also not being spared. Malicious attempts to malign their name. The Sisters are being targeted. #BJP want to spare no one. Highly condemnable. Let MOC continue to do their work for the poorest of the poor," Banerjee tweeted.

The Trinamool Congress supremo's comments came amid complaints that trafficking and selling of children were rampant in Jharkhand's Ranchi Nirmal Hriday, a Missionaries of Charity shelter home.

Jharkhand Police had arrested a nun and an employee of the Catholic Order last week for allegedly selling a child of an unwed mother for Rs 1.2 lakh to an Uttar Pradesh-based couple.

They also alleged that MoC was unable to provide records of births by 280 women at its homes in Ranchi.

According to police, 450 pregnant women were admitted in various homes, run by the Order founded by Mother Teresa, between 2015 and 2018, but there are records of only 170 childbirths and no information about the remaining 280.

The matter came to light when the couple, who had taken a newborn from the charity home in May, complained that they had paid Rs 1.2 lakh for medical care and delivery of the child, but the baby was taken back by the charity with assurances of returning it after court procedures.

The couple complained to the Child Welfare Society after they failed to get the child.

    In whole universe among all Christian missionaries are best and most trusted.
    It's evident from the fact that these Fascist forces will do everything if they get an opportunity to find job, do business or migrate to Christian countries!
    These Christian hating fascists are hypocrites, they try their best to malign christian institutions just because they are too jealous!
    They will spare their own rapists, murders, lynchers, looters any hardcore criminal for that matter, but WHEN IT COMES TO CHRISTIANS, they will use microscope to scrutinize Christians activities!
    They will use hundreds of laws!
    They will try their best to demoralize them and try to make their functioning quite impossible.

    Christian missionaries are subject to same laws and are answerable to constitution of India. They are not answerable and subject to vatican laws. This was the same cm who promised stipends to imams but not fathers or priests in temples. Bengal has been screwed by the bangladeshi loving cm and dont want karnataka to turn the same. Tbe catholic church has been instrumental in supporting nazis in world war 2.

    Today the District collector said that it is false propaganda that 280 babies are missing. He said only 4 babies were missing and now 3 have been traced. Investigation is on for the one missing baby.
    It is very clear that 2019 election is nearing and these kind of allegations by the interested political party is bound to be there.

    Everything happening in the world is observed by others too. World is very small and mass media bought us very close to each other. Unfortunately, in India, we waste energy, time for unrelated issues.

    Breaking society is more evident than building society.
