India restores foreign fund license for Mother Teresa’s charity

The Indian government has allowed Mother Teresa’s charity to receive foreign funds. A few weeks later, the Indian government said that the Catholic organization did not meet the conditions set by local law.

NEW DELHI-A lawmaker said on Saturday that the Indian government has allowed Mother Teresa’s charity to accept foreign funds. A few weeks later, the charity said the Catholic organization did not meet the conditions set by local law.

The charity was founded by Mother Teresa in Kolkata in 1950 and runs hundreds of shelters to provide care for some of the most needy people in the world. Many leaders of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party accused the charity of forced conversion. The charity denied these allegations.

India is home to the second largest Catholic population in Asia after the Philippines, but in this Hindu country with a population of nearly 1.4 billion, approximately 18 million Catholics are only a minority.
