Mother Teresa is a highly controversial icon in India. But by cutting off the funding tap for the Missionaries of Charity, an organization that the Macedonian nun had founded in Calcutta in 1950, the nationalist Prime Minister Narendra Modi confirms his practice of unlimited ostracism against minority religions in the subcontinent.

On Christmas Day, Saturday December 25, its Minister of the Interior, the authoritarian Amit Shah, announced his refusal to renew the approval of the charitable association identifiable by the white veil and blue border worn by its nuns. According to him, the Missionaries of Charity no longer respond to “eligibility criteria” which allowed them, for 70 years, to receive money from abroad.
