India rejects Albanian claim on Mother Teresa

New Delhi: Welcoming the Indian government's statement that Mother Teresa was an Indian citizen, the Catholic Bishops Conference of India (CBCI) Tuesday said the church would want her remains to be in the country.Rejecting the Albanian government's demand for the remains of Mother Teresa, an external affairs ministry official told IANS that Mother Teresa was an Indian citizen and there was no question of returning her remains.

"The Catholic church gladly welcomes the response of the external affairs ministry that Mother Teresa was fully an Indian citizen. We would want her remains to be in India," said CBCI spokesman Rev Babu Joseph.

The church said: "Mother Teresa had all through her life and activities built up a strong bond with all sections of Indian society and she is respected by all in the country. And this was the filial relationship between the Mother and Indians, which cannot be overlooked."

Albania is Mother Teresa's country of origin. Albanian Prime Minister Sali Berisha has asked New Delhi for her remains to be returned to Albania by the 100th anniversary of her birth in August 2010.

The church had said earlier that the government should consult it and the Missionaries of Charity before taking a decision on Albania's request for Mother Teresa's remains.

Mother Teresa, who was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 2003, is buried at the courtyard of the Missionaries of Charity headquarters in Kolkata. She died in 1997.

Well if her body has been cremated then the ashes can be shared.  But yes she is more Indian then many of us.
Generally such a high soul belongs to the whole world.
You are lucky to be blessed by her.

Here's the deal. Mother Teresa was at heart more Indian than many others born Indians themselves. She dedicated her lifetime to the service of Calcutta's impoverished people. India can proudly call her a citizen.

However, Albania is a small Baltic country mired by war and despairity. Its a country struggling to get a foothold in the world after all its been through. Its something extraordinarily huge for a small country like that to claim that a great Saint like Mother Teresa was born. It will be an inspiration to young Albanians to know someone so noble was born of their soil.

India has many heroes. I think we can be gracious and share one with Albania.
