Harmony Foundation’s Abraham Mathai writes to UN chief about deportation of nuns from Nicaragua
The founding president of the Harmony Foundation, Dr. Abraham Mathai, wrote to Mr. António Guterres, the Secretary General of the United Nations, regarding the expulsion of the nuns of Mother Teresa from Nicaragua. Dr Mathai said the decision is a stain on humanity and shocks the world.
“I am deeply saddened to bring to the urgent attention of the United Nations the matter of the expulsion of the nuns of Mother Teresa from Nicaragua, following the forced closure of the Missionaries of Charity in the country last month,” said said Dr. Mathai in his letter.
Hitting Daniel Ortega, the President of Nicaragua, Dr Mathai wrote: “It is absolutely absurd and ridiculous for Dan iel Ortega, a paranoid and maniacal dictator, to make false and unsubstantiated allegations that non-governmental groups such as the Missionaries of Charity, work on behalf of foreign interests to destabilize his government.
“Ortega’s irrational act of blatantly annihilating organizations he does not control is itself a dictatorial act, further violating the rights of citizens, which in large part amounts to gross injustice. The autocratic rule of this megalomaniac dictator since 2007 is in itself a flagrant violation of human and civil rights. Therefore, the expulsion of the Missionaries of Charity from Nicaragua where they served for more than three decades only aggravates the situation.
Highlighting the work of Missionaries For Charity, Dr Mathai said the group, which is dedicated to helping the most marginalized people in such a poor country, has been in Nicaragua for more than three decades, operating a children’s center, a home for girls, an institution for the elderly and vocational training for child victims of violence.
Calling the expulsion of the nuns a reckless and inhumane gesture, Dr Mathai said Ortega’s “dictatorial regime” openly violated human rights.
“Mother Teresa’s legacy that lives on through the transformative and compassionate work of the Missionaries of Charity she founded, based on her ethics and virtues, exemplified by the nuns, has been terribly insulted by the heinous action of the paranoid dictator,” said Dr Mathai.
On behalf of the Harmony Foundation, the former Vice President of the Minorities Commission said he looked forward to the United Nations responding accordingly by mobilizing the international community to castigate and rebuke the unwarranted action of the dictatorial regime in Daniel Ortega.
“The United Nations should consider such drastic measures as imposing sanctions on the Ortega regime or even excluding Nicaragua from the international community for applying draconian measures to humanitarian organizations that work selflessly among the poorest sections of the population. population,” Dr Mathai told the UN. Chief.
“The world admires the Missionaries of Charity for their compassionate efforts and selfless acts. In a world that is caught up in materialistic pursuits and the gradual demise of humanity, it is these revered nuns who restore our faith in compassion and kindness through their selfless personalities. They give us the greatest hope in these darkest times the world is going through and therefore the United Nations should intervene to ensure the survival of humanity and common sense,” Dr. Mathai concluded in his letter in admiring the Missionaries of Charity.
