Indian government holding up funds for Missionaries of Charity
December 28, 2021
CWN Editor's Note: The government of India has declined to renew permission for the Missionaries of Charity to receive funding from abroad. The government said that the religious order, founded by Mother Teresa, had not fulfilled conditions for a license to receive funds.
The government’s move comes at a time when Hindu-nationalist groups are charging that the Missionaries of Charity put pressure on residents and students at their many charitable institutions to convert to Christianity—a charge that the order rejects.
