Panaji: A day after a cross was found desecrated in Raia, the Council for Social Justice and Peace (CSJP) has demanded that State Government should conduct thorough investigation into all such cases held in Goa claiming that it is a handiwork of a group and not any individual.

 “We are deeply perturbed with the resurfacing of desecration of Christian religious structures as widely reported in the media. The usual bias and knee jerk reaction of the police in jumping to a suspicion and the arrest of some migrant labourers in the vicinity offers absolutely no consolation to the Christian community,” CSJP Executive Secretary Fr Savio Fernandes has said in a press statement issued today.

 “Now that the religious desecrations have resurfaced to haunt the State, the CSJP demands that the Goa Government should conduct a proper and thorough independent investigation in all such cases which have occurred in the State,” Fernandes stated.

“The Council hopes that the State Government and the Police will not once again take recourse in the usual denial and diversionary tactics and finding some scape-goat to cover up such crimes, which have been contributing to the growing feelings of insecurity among the minorities in the State and the country,” he added.

He added that there hardly appears any doubt in the minds of the people, cutting across communities, that such incidents of religious desecrations have a definite pattern with an intention to instill fear and provoke negative feelings among certain communities in order to disrupt the social harmony in the State of Goa.
