NEW DELHI: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy on Wednesday extended support to his party MP Yogi Adityanath, who accused Mother Teresa of being part of a ‘conspiracy to Christianise India’, saying the views are not isolated, as there have been books published in this regard.

“You see the issue of Yogi Adityanath expressing his view is not an isolated view. It is a view which has been reduced to books, there is a writer Christopher Hitchens, who has written a best seller book and if you go to Google you would get a lots of books about her,” Swamy told ANI.

Citing an example, Swamy said once a prominent crook, who robbed the pensions of middle class people in California was caught and a trial was taking place and Mother Teresa wrote a letter asking not to prosecute him, as he has given her millions of dollars to further the cause of Christianity in India.

“The judge responded that he was surprised that Mother Teresa was coming on his behalf, as he has robbed the pension of hard working people and in the name of Jesus Christ, asked him to return the money, so that relief can be given to the people,” he said.

“That is how she was given a rebuke. Why would a religious leader write of a criminal?” he asked.

Yogi Adityanath, had earlier accused Mother Teresa of being part of a ‘conspiracy to Christianise India’.

According to reports the BJP MP while speaking at a religious meeting in Basti accused Mother Teresa of being a part of a conspiracy to convert Hindus to Christianity.
