BHARATPUR: Conversion to Christianity was the main objective behind Mother Teresa's service to the poor, RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat said today.

"Mother Teresa's service would have been good. But it used to have one objective, to convert the person, who was being

served, into a Christian," he said while speaking at a function organised by NGO Apna Ghar near here.

"The question is not about conversion but if this (conversion) is done in the name of service, then that service gets devalued," he said.

"But here (at the NGO), the objective is purely service of poor and helpless people," added Bhagwat.

The RSS Chief was addressing a function in village Bajhera, near 8 kms from here, where he inaugurated 'Mahila Sadan' and 'Sishu Bal Grah' in the NGO for helpless women and children.
