Missionaries of Charity Tuesday described RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat as “uninformed” in the light of his conversion remarks.
“His (Bhagwat) comments reflect how misinformed he is. In Missionaries of Charity, there is no place for conversion. His comments are unfortunate,” Mother Teresa’s close associate and Missionaries of Charity spokesperson Sunita Kumar told IANS.
Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh chief Bhagwat, while addressing a function of an NGO near Bharatpur in Rajasthan, had said the Nobel laureate’s service to the poor was aimed at converting them to Christianity.
Sunita Kumar, however, said Missionaries of Charity will not press for an apology from Bhagwat.
“If he realises he has done something wrong, he will apologise. It’s for him to decide,” he added.
Bhagwat’s comments evoked strong response from several quarters with the Congress even raising the matter in the Lok Sabha.
