Mother Teresa, The Missionaries of Charity and their involvement at the Bhopal Disaster: Mother Teresa, whose post-Nobel reputation within India was then very high indeed, rushed in to Bhopal like an international dignitary. Her contribution in Bhopal has become a legend: she looked at the carnage, nodded gravely three times and said, ‘I say, forgive.’ There was a stunned silence in the audience. She took in the incredulity, nodded again, and repeated, ‘I say, forgive.’ Then she quickly wafted away, like visiting royalty.
Her comments would have been somewhat justified if she had sent in her Missionaries of Charity to help in any way. But to come in unannounced, and make an insensitive comment like that so early on, was nothing short of an insult to the dead and suffering. In the wider world however, her image became even more enhanced, as she was seen even more like Jesus Christ, who would turn the other cheek, although in this instance the cheek was not hers.
