Subramanian Swamy backs Yogi Adityanath's allegation on Mother Teresa.
"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.

According to a ANI report, "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 was quoted as saying in the report.

In a controversial remark, BJP MP Yogi Adityanath has said Nobel Laureate Mother Teresa was part of a "conspiracy for Christianisation of India".


"Teresa was part of a conspiracy for Christianisation of India. Incidents of Christianisation had led to separatist movements in parts of North-East, including Arunachal Pradesh, Tripura, Meghalaya and Nagaland," the Gorakhpur MP said.

Addressing a Ram Katha programme in UP on Saturday, he said, "You all are unaware of the situation in NE. You should visit there to see the real situation."

In 2015, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat had in a similar comment said Mother Teresa's service to the poor was aimed at converting them to Christianity.
