Was Mother Teresa Really the Angel We All Believe Her to Be?
The global peace icon Anjeze Gonxhe Bojaxhiu, well-known as Mother Teresa, was born in 1910 in Skopje, Macedonia, Ottoman Empire. She is considered one of the most prominent Catholic figures. Mother Teresa gave a significant contribution to uplift poverty in Calcutta. She was a pretty benevolent person who was bestowed with several awards, including the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 and the Ramon Magsaysay Peace Prize. Despite all the great work of Mother Teresa, she is still no saint to many people. Why is it so? Did she really have a dark side? In this article, we will look at some facts about Mother Teresa that might astonish you. Here we go!
Mother Teresa’s Missionary Work volunteer shared a documentary named Hell Angel’s in 1994. In this documentary, it was claimed that there was no safety for terminally ill individuals. The same needles were used for several other patients who received treatment. The medical staff there was not trained and had poor patient handling skills. Some HIV positive patients were also there, but there was no needle sterilization in the process. These all malpractices were happening under the watchful eyes of Mother Teresa, eyewitnesses claimed.
Friends with Wrong Individuals
It is claimed that Mother Teresa had several friends in high places; she used to take donations from people involved in the carnage of the Christian community around the globe. She was friends with the US president, Ronald Wilson Reagan, who was alleged to have hands in the genocide of the archbishop of San Salvador and catholic nuns during the cold war. Mother Teresa was involved with Charles Keating, a successful business tycoon convicted in racketeering for the dirty loan practices.
Some people think Mother Teresa had an inclination towards gathering money, no matter who gave it to her. However, in the year 2016, Mother Teresa was bestowed with the title of saint, one of the highest ranks for preaching members. Well, this decision was supported by many, while some were against it.
