At long last, the Missionaries of Charity founded by Mother Teresa has decided to copyright its celebrated logo, emblem and flag. The reason is rampant misuse of its symbols by shady organisations. Years ago the police had busted an international gang of forgers and currency racketeers from Southeast Asia, which made off with cheques from abroad issued in favour of Mother Teresa and organisations run by her. A number of Bangladeshis were arrested in Thailand but the Mother had refused to prosecute them. But now those who manage the missions say they can’t allow unscrupulous persons to solicit money from unsuspecting foreign donors using the Mother’s name. The modus operandi is simple: register an organisation in the Mother’s name, open an account and rake in the moolah—a game rendered easier by the internet.
