On a day when cononisation ceremony is being oragnised in Vatical City to declare Nobel Peace prize winner Mother Teresa a saint, hashtag #FraudTeresa has been trending on the social media, evoking sharp protests from her followers.
Many trollers have questioned the motive of the Mother, charging her with concentrating only on conversion and targeting the poor in his task—a charge strongly contested by her followers.
One of the trollers @sudeepbose said: “She received Nobel Prize for mass conversion. Mahatma Gandhi was denied Nobel for opposing conversion”.
@Abhishek_Mishra asked, “Teresa had herself said that she worked to bring people to the fold of Christianity”.

@saxenaanurag said, “Mother Teresahad herself admitted her job was to bring people into the fold of Chriasnity”.
Another one @airavatvolvo alleged, “She just used poverty as negotiable instrument to encash as and when required”.
@noconversion asked, “Where are billions of dollars she received as donation?”
Another troller @spati2012 alleged, “The main business of #FraudTeresa was to ‘collect money in the name of charity’, ‘convert the poor into Christianity.”
@hindustanese was even more critical: “She laid the foundation of conversion and exploiting poor whom we ignored, and now its viral in India and still we cant stop it”.
Such allegations and criticisms, however, have received strong protests from the followers of Mother.
A shocked @sumell observed, “Unfair to trend #FraudTeresa-Such a genius, works amongst poorest of poor without knowing the language, so call her #FraudTeresa?”
@AbhinavAAP said, “I pray to God that people who are trending #FraudTeresa many find some peace in their lives & realize how dangerous this venom can be”.
Another one @RituRathaur asked, “Why is #FraudTeresa trending? Instead we should have requested PM @narendramodi to #DeclareMaaTeReSaMotherOfNation Sad day!”
