Mother Teresa is capable of raising a storm, no matter how. And it is most often unexpectedly. The funding for her statues that the Mamata government in West Bengal builds raises eyebrows, her Nobel Prize has been questioned, her beatification and Sainthood challenged. Following Puffin Books India’s release of the first book in an illustrated series named Junior Lives, exceptional tales about exceptional people, an author has asked, ‘Should children be exposed to the toxic belief that contraception must be abjured even within marriage, or that abortion is the greatest sin and the greatest destroyer of peace?’

Puffin’s new book is Mother Teresa by the Mumbaibased content writer Sonia Mehta. Dr Aroup Chatterjee’s Mother Teresa- The Untold Story, is published by Fingerprint Publishing.

‘The popular tendency is to deify myths, gurus, and personalities without investigating the claims thoroughly. Mother Teresa is one such name. Does Mother Teresa deserve her reputation as the most charitable person who ever lived?’, asks William Radice, School of Oriental and African Studies.

In a protest letter to Puffins, the London-based physician Chatterjee writes, ‘am pained but not surprised that another book is out on the late nun. After all, she sells.

But is she suitable for children though?
What was her ideology? - Should children be exposed to the toxic belief that contraception must be abjured even within marriage, or that abortion is the greatest sin and the ‘‘greatest destroyer of peace’’?

Mother Teresa was a creation of media’s and her own lies. She did little but said a lot. She was also a hypocrite - she reused needles again and again on her residents but she herself had the best medical treatments in the world’s finest hospitals.

I have clear evidence that she sold a child after falsifying his document.

I have also evidence that she converted 29,000 dying people secretively. Indians lose all self respect and dignity when it comes to white Christian imperialists…’
