Pope should tender an apology for atrocities on Hindus – Francois Gautier, A French journalist
The Christian Missionaries committed inhuman atrocities on Hindus in Goa in the name of ‘Inquisition’; however, the Indians are unaware of this genocide. On the contrary, the despots such as Aurangzeb, St. Zaviers are being glorified in India. Those who tell true history are unfortunately derided as fundamentalists in India. The details of atrocities committed on the ancestors of Hindus should come out before the world. Not only this, but Pope must tender apology about these atrocities, demanded the French Journalist and researcher Francois Gautier. He was speaking at the inaugural function of ‘Online’ exhibition of pictures about ‘Goa Inquisition’.
At the start of the programme, the ‘Online’ exhibition of pictures about ‘Goa Inquisition’ was inaugurated at the auspicious hands of the National Guide of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti Sadguru (Dr.) Charudatta Pingale.

Mr. Francois Gautier, famous writer Shefali Vaidya, historian of Goa Prof. Prajal Sakhardande and the National Spokesperson of Hindu Janjagruti Samiti gave guidance. The programme which was transmitted on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter was viewed by 33,800 people and reached 74,000 people.

We must comprehend our history; otherwise, these people will deny that anything like this had ever happened. ‘Goa Inquisition’ is a social agony, said the writer Shefali Vaidya.
