first_imgChief Minister Manohar Parrikar said on Monday that a church-backed fact-finding report into serial desecrations in Goa was part of a conspiracy hatched against him ahead of the bypolls. On August 21, the Council for Social Justice and Peace, an NGO affiliated to the Goa Catholic Church, had released the report on a series of cases of alleged desecration of Christian and Hindu religious symbols in South Goa.Mr. Parrikar said, “All methods were tried — legal, media, social media and scurrilous publicity. Even to the extent that two days before elections, some organisation released an untrue fact-finding report. I am calling it untrue, you will realise why in the coming days after details of the police investigation.”The report, co-authored by the Mumbai-based Centre for Study of Society and Secularism, has demanded a court-monitored probe into the cases of desecration. It has accused the Goa police of colluding with the State administration in covering up the investigation into the cases and so far arresting only one person. Earlier, a Church-run magazine had severely criticised the BJP governments at the State and Centre. The article compared contemporary India to Nazi Germany and implored Catholics to vote against communalism.last_img
