Strange are our ways. For Mahatma Gandhi, a Mahatma, but there is no shortage of critics against him, and no apology is demanded from his critics. Various sections including Dalits repeatedly abuse and critique Gandhi and they don’t get ridiculed. However, when it comes to Mother Teresa, it seems like you cannot criticize Mother Teresa? If one does, you are termed communal. The Loksatta editor, had to apologize for publishing an editorial critical of sainthood for Mother Teresa (so much for free speech)? Arguably, there is much been written about the baggage, lack of transparency, and deeds (or maybe “misdeeds”) surrounding Mother Teresa. Should we not let this be examined in public?
