New Delhi, Feb 25: Two days after RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat sparked a controversy saying that ‘Mother Teresa's motive was conversion of poor people,' the Vatican on Tuesday declined to comment on Bhagwat's comments but said: "Mother Teresa was a beacon of hope."
On Tuesday a Vatican spokesperson said: "The Holy See doesn't wish to comment on political turn of events in any country.
The Blessed Mother Teresa is a beacon of hope for the poor and downtrodden. Her life has been an inspiration for people across the world."
This comes after Bhagwat made the controversial statement at an event in Rajasthan earlier this week.
Bhagwat's comments were criticized by many politicians and even Christian institutions across the country.
