More catholic than the Pope

While the Christian foreign media is more forthright with the truth, Chindu and Navin Chawla anoint Mother Teresa.

The Hindu : Opinion / Leader Page Articles : The miracle of faith
Although she herself remained staunchly Catholic, her brand of religion
was not exclusive. Convinced that each person she ministered to was
Christ in suffering, she reached out to people of all faiths. The very
faith that sustained her infuriated her detractors, who saw her as a
symbol of a right-wing conspiracy and, worse, the principal mouthpiece
of the Vatican’s well-known views against abortion. Interestingly, such
criticism was largely unnoticed in India, where there has always been
great reverence for holiness, and where people admired and respected
her irrespective of her faith or their own.

It is interesting to see how Chindu propagates the myth of "Mother" Teresa and devotes so much (Centre page) space under the pretext of some annivesary. Chindu never gives even a quarter of this coverage to Hindu saints and monks who are also doing a lot of charitable work.

For example, The Ramakrishna Mission, with HQ at Kolkata (and started several years before the arrival of "Mother" Teresa) has been doing exemplary work for several decades in various social spheres. Swami Vivekananda never gets this kind of coverage in Chindu. May be because he is not a "minority" saint! And any write-up on him is not likely to result in any award for secular journalism either!!
