#GoaInquisition becomes top trend to expose horrors of inquisition by Missionaries

December 19 is celebrated as Goa Liberation Day. This is the day when the tyrannical Portuguese were overthrown after 451 long years. During the Portuguese rule, between 1560 and 1812, Goan Hindus faced the bloodiest and most horrifying Inquisition that the world has witnessed. For 252 years, those Hindus who refused to convert to Christianity or those found ‘guilty’ of secretly practising Hindu Dharma despite converting were punished in the cruellest manner possible. But the inquisition does not find any mention in Indian history books, nor is it opely discussed.

Hence on the occasion of Goa Liberation Day, Hindu netizens took to Twitter to expose horrors of Goa Inquisition and to demand apology from the Pope for the brutal inquisition by Missionaries on Goan Hindus. Netizens also urged Goa CM to include history of Goa Inquisition in history textbooks. More than 30,000 tweets were tweeted with the hashtag #GoaInquisition, which became top trend in India for brief period of time. It was in top 5 trends for few hours.

Here are some of the tweets from the trend :
