Pope Francis expressed his discontent at naming a bomb ‘Mother’ saying it is not a motherly act to kill a person.
Pope was referring to MOAB, Mother of ALL Bombs, that was used in Afghanistan last month. Giving speech before a group of students, pope criticized the United States and its military officials for naming a huge bomb that can kill a large number of people the ‘mother.’
I was ashamed when I heard the name. A mother gives life and this one gives death, and we call this device a mother. What is happening?
The largest bomb in the world was used last month for the first time in Achin district in Afghanistan to destroy the underground tunnels and caves founded by ISIS. The 10-kilogram bomb is said to have horrific explosive impact and its effects could be seen over a mile from the spot of explosion.
This is not the first time Pope Francis targets Donald Trump in in his speeches critically. On immigration, the significance of climate change, and refugee crisis which roots from the human crisis in Syria, Pope has had totally different views from Mr. Trump.
The pontiff’s comments are made while there will be a meeting with President Trump in the near future in a trip to Europe as one of his first trips after taking the office. The meeting will be done later this month in Vatican.
