India, (PNB NEWS). After weekend unrest over Christmas celebrations, Narendra Modi Modi’s government locked the bank accounts of Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity (MoC) in West Bengal, as per the state’s senior politician. Hardline Hindu groups associated with Modi’s party have accused the MoC of conducting religious conversion programs under the pretext of charity by giving funds, free education, and shelter to poor Hindus and tribal areas. “I was shocked to learn that the Union Ministry froze all Banks accounts of Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity in India during the Christmas season!” The state’s chief minister, Mamata Banerjee, stated in a tweet.

“Food and medicine have been taken away from their 22,000 patients and employees. Whilst rule of law must be honored, lifesaving operations must not be jeopardized “Banerjee, a member of the opposition and an outspoken opponent of Modi’s government, stated. Mother Teresa, a Roman Catholic nun who died in 1997 and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, founded the Missionaries of Charity in 1950. The MoC, which has its headquarters in the eastern state of West Bengal, has over 3,000 nuns worldwide who run hospices, community kitchens, schools, leper colonies, and homes for abandoned children. Officials from the Ministry of Culture were not reached for comment, but the federal home ministry stated that the government will issue a statement once initial research is complete.
