In a surprising turn of events, Indian authorities have sealed a charity home run by Mother Teresa’s religious order and the reason is quite devastating. According to reports, a nun and one other employee of the charity home have been charged with the offense of child trafficking. The home is run by Missionaries of Charity in the state of Jharkhand in India that provides shelter for pregnant unmarried women.
Apparently, the Child Welfare Committee of Ranchi filed a complaint against the home accusing them of selling an infant for approx Rs 1.2 lakhs. Police have arrested Sister Konsalia Balsa and charity worker Anima Indwar in the matter. Furthermore, the police are trying to find the three babies whom they suspect were sold by the accused. The police investigation is in full force to find out the number of babies who have become targets to child trafficking.
Evidently, the entire country is in shock after the incident. People took it to their social media accounts to express their anger about the incident. However, they targeted the Nobel Peace Prize winner and children’s rights activist Kailash Satyarthi for his silence in the child trafficking case.
Kailash Satyarthi has been working to protect the children from exploitation through various protests and campaigns for more than a decade. But the netizens have slammed the Nobel Peace Prize winner for not speaking up yet into the case.
Take a look at the tweet by one social media user:
I am @k_satyarthi. I got the Nobel Prize for children’s welfare but in my country Christian nuns have been arrested for selling newborn babies, but I won’t speak against it because that will make the goras and Vatican angry. pic.twitter.com/iW8Yq0xtlX

Incidentally, his tweet received a lot of responses against Kailash Satyarthi and other alleged peace-keeping Indians who have shown no concern towards the child trafficking case. From calling him shameless to a hypocrite, people have posted some outrageous comments.
Here are some of the tweets:
The nation expects you to speak up!
will you kindly speak up against the Missionaries.?
The nation expects you to speak up since you are an eminent child rights activist.
Unless you wish to be servile & subservient to the Church & the Vatican.

Is that so?
As per Satyarthi, selling new born does not hamper child welfare.

Well, Missionaries of Charity that funds the charity home where this child trafficking case has been reported was started by Mother Teresa in 1950. Apparently, trafficking of children carries a sentence of 10 years in prison.
