Mother Teresa and Gandhi

Mother Teresa admired Gandhi but she also admire and take on his casteist policies...
When she said that the poor people of Surrey needed more than what the people of India and Lebanon needed and would be satisfied by - 'a plate of food and a big smile'
Gandhi wrote 1903 justifiying his concern for rights for Indians and not black or coloured South Africans with "If there is one thing which the Indian cherishes more than any other, it is the purity of the type"
Could explain why lower caste or non white people receive less services?
