In India and particularly Goa church is found actively meddling in almost every affairs. Imagine if tomorrow a Hindu swamy gets involved actively. It will be branded as communal none other than by hindu intellectuals, writers, dramatists, tabaljees, actors, etc etc. Why are they silent? What makes them cowards? I have guts because I am not a politician nor a pasarkar. My worry is involvement of church will be a bad precedent.
