Indian delegates should not participate in the Canonization ceremony of Mother Teresa
New book "Mother Teresa Canonized or Crucified" by Gerard insists Indian delegates not to participate in the Sainthood ceremony of Mother Teresa because this is against the secular fabric of the nation.

Chennai, Tamil Nadu, August 27, 2016: The author Gerard through his book "Mother Teresa Canonized or Crucified" published by Notion Press, urges Hon Minister of External affairs and Hon Chief Minister of Delhi, Hon Chief Minister of West Bengal not to participate in the Sainthood ceremony of Mother Teresa. Doing so would mean that they are abetting the snobbish activities of Roman Catholic Church and also going against the secular fabric of India, he expressed.

Mother Teresa was widely known as a living saint as she ministered to the sick and the dying in some of the poorest neighborhoods of the world. Recognized as the Saint of Calcutta, Mother Teresa had first been honoured by the Indian government with the Padma Shri in 1962 and the Jawaharlal Nehru Award for International Understanding in 1969. She continued to receive major Indian awards in subsequent years, including India's highest civilian award, the Bharat Ratna, in 1980.

The author also explains that the Canonization of Mother Teresa by Vatican will definitely make the awards conferred to her by the Indian government diminutive.

He also stated that Sainthood is just a visualization created by the Catholic Church. "There is no fundamental basis for the veneration of saints in the Bible. Canonization is a mode of granting permission for the veneration of Mother Teresa in all Catholic Churches all over the world. Recognizing Mother Teresa as the saint will create a severe insult to the services done by Mother Teresa and also shatter her fame and principles. So, please say no to the Sainthood of Mother Teresa and save her pride.
