VIJAYAWADA: In protest against RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat’s remarks on Mother Teresa, the Andhra Pradesh Federation of Churches took out a rally from Patamata here on Tuesday and demanded an open apology from him.

Wearing black badges, holding placards with slogans such as ‘My religion, My right’, thousands of Christians, pastors, sisters and various Christian organisations from various places across the district participated in the rally from Nirmala High School to Mother Teresa statue on the Pinnamaneni Polyclinic Road where they garlanded the statue.

Speaking on the occasion, Monsignor M Chinappa said that Mohan Bhagwat had intentionally made controversial comments on Mother Teresa that her service to the poorest of the poor was aimed at conversions to Christianity, which is absolutely false.

SSC director Fr M Prasad said that Mother Teresa always wanted to serve the poor, but not involved in religious conversions.

Maris Stella College principal Sr Rekha and Kaladarshini director Fr Ravi Sekhar were present.
